Cup Holders

Your assignment (should you choose to accept it) is to find the best cup holder out there for our TravelScoots. If you do a google search for "Microphone stand cup holder", "bicycle cup holder" or "wheelchair cup holder" you'll see many options.

I don't think attaching a cup holder to the handlebars is going to be an option, which makes me think the microphone stand cup holder might work best, since it can be attached to a vertical piece. My sister Rae is the one who came up with this idea.

Here's one product that might work. Look at the SwirlyGig II.

Has anyone found other accessories that work with the TravelScoot?


  1. I am glad you posed this. When Bee mentioned her scoot had a cup holder I couldn't quite picture what that would look like and how it would work.

    I might try to find one because I always take a bottle of water with me shopping and I have to keep it in my purse and I am always worried about it leaking on things.

  2. mine came from walmart, it is for a bicycle and it came with a cup with a lid but a water bottle fits it perfectly, i will email you a photo of where it is placed. sarge installed it with two wire ties.

    smiles, bee

  3. Cynth, maybe between all of us we can come up with the perfect cup holder. I'll post Bee's picture after she sends it, so we can see what Sarge did for her.

  4. I was searching for bike drink holders and found this bad ass skull bike bell... my scoot might need a replacment bell.

  5. Cynth, I'm learning all sorts of things about you! If you're ready to buy one, check this out:

  6. Elizabeth, that is a nice one and very tempting... until I saw this one

    I haven't located that one in the US yet, but when I do it will be mine. It will match the pink sparkle dog collar that holds my basket on :)

  7. What do you think about this type of drink holder?

    It's soft so maybe it could remain attached during fold up without getting in the way.. or since it is velcro it could be removed easily.

    I am thinking it would attach above the basket and twisted to the side so its not directly over the basket.

  8. Cynth, I looked at that drink holder and I really like it. The only problem I see is that you'd only be able to use it with a bottled drink.

  9. I ordered that "roll bar" drink holder from Amazon I will let you know how it works.

    Since the only kind of drink I carry is a bottle of water it should work find if I can strap it tight enough to the scoot.
