Get ready to stoke your imagination…especially if you do not favor the morning or afternoon commute. There are plenty of awesome alternatives to driving, and they do not include taking mass transit or carpooling. Some you need a bankroll to buy, like the first gadget. It’s insanely fun though, despite the high price tag. There’s also one on this list that’s free. Sit back and imagine riding these

Some of these may seem a little ‘out there’ but trust us, they are very real and very cool. Not only are most of these saving you time (rather than walking or waiting for a bus), but they can be really fun – so let them out.
