Segway Experiences Across the UK from Into The Blue
Take a Segway out for a spin and discover the crazy gyroscopic world of these fun personal transporters! Segways, although not a UK invention, are mad little self-balancing things that us Brits have taken to like ducks to water - and they will have you in stitches...not literally of course, but they really are fun to ride.
The technology behind them is quite amazing and actually pretty in-depth. But that's not what you'll be interested in when you opt for these adventurous experiences - it’s all about whizzing along and burning up the bends. As soon as you get the hang of how they work you'll be off along the paths with a big smile on your face!

Go gyroscopic with these amazing personal transporters!
These two-wheeled scooter-like vehicles are all the rage. They are actually self-balancing and battery operated, so they run silently - making them something of a stealth machine - and an environmentally friendly one at that.
They don’t lack performance either. A Segway can reach speeds of up to 20km/h and go for several hours before needing a recharge. You mostly see them being used in big places like airports and warehouses as personal transporters, but we are offering a very special activity…
Using Segway X2s, the special cross country versions of these machines, you will head off the beaten track for a spot of riding in the countryside. In the UK they are only licensed for off road use, so all our venues are private locations away from the public roads, making it really safe as well.
Of course, many of you will probably never have ridden one of these rather odd looking contraptions before, so tuition to get you up and running is included, as is a helmet and protective gear. Most experiences start with a briefing and a little ride around a training paddock so you can used to the controls - as you can see for yourself on our Segway training video clip.
Treks, obstacle courses and even sightseeing on Segways
As for what you actually get to do on your Segway depends on where you go. Some UK venues offer pure tactical riding challenges as you take on a purpose-built obstacle course. Others host more of a trek where you play follow the leader and head off to explore the countryside or circumnavigate a lake perhaps. It might be the you spend all your time concentrating on that rutted terrain, those muddy paths and the odd slippy side slope. Or it could be that a bit of Segway sightseeing is in order…
Yes, not only are these little offroading wheelie machines great fun in themselves to ride, we also boast several venues that feature stunning houses or scenery. You might find yourself discovering the hidden corners of a famous country estate, zipping off to explore a castle or being wowed by the panoramic views of London from your Segway. One thing’s for sure, you get a lot further when riding around on a Segway than on foot.
In essence what we love about the Segway is that it is versatile and fun. Not only are these experiences like little mini-treks on two wheels, you may also get to do some rather pleasant sightseeing. Imagine whizzing around on your X2 Segway checking out the architecture of Alexandra Palace, the historic Lowether Estate in Cumbria or riding like Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest!
