Riding a Segway

While Segways are becoming more popular as a means of transportation in cities, many people are still new to the concept. Segways can reach up to 12 miles per hour (though most tours usually go around 8 miles per hour) and are propelled by the forward motion of the rider’s body. Whatever direction you lean, your Segway will follow. It may take a bit of getting used to, but you’ll be a pro in no time!

Don’t let the speed or steering frighten you. Segways are suitable for just about everyone. They are safe for riders ages 12 and older with a weight range of 90-300 pounds. As long as you can stand on your own and have good balance, you’re good to go! If you’re still not convinced, don’t worry. Segway companies will provide you with a helmet and a short training session before you head out.
