I was really excited for the Segway Tour but a bit nervous – I’m not very athletic – so I was a bit worried. (and by “not very athletic” – I mean “a complete clutz”)
The Segway Store is located downtown on Central & Vine. You can buy Segways, electric bikes and more at the store. Most tours depart from this location.
And I will warn you – the next image is disturbing so view at your own risk 🙂
Yes – that is the great thing about a Segway tour – you have to wear a helmet and a bright orange vest. Hot – I know.
Jake was a great tour guide – nobody on the tour had ridden before so he taught each of us how to ride and gave us ample practice time.
The corner where the shop is has a lot of riding room – so we tooled around and practiced away!
Larry & Cat were up on theirs really quickly. I thought for sure Larry would be a natural but it actually took him a bit longer to get the hang of it – but once he did – he was smooth! Cat was a natural – she hopped on and took off. #nofear
We were on the Riverfront Tour and went through downtown and over to The Banks. It’s a great tour and the time on the Riverfront is great because you really get to ride on a straightaway and just go and enjoy the view.
This was beautiful – a bit more challenging because of the hills – but gorgeous views of the city. This tour starts in Mt. Adams.
Oddly enough – in nearly 10 years – I had never been to this part of Eden Park! The view truly is beautiful and there was a whole family of raccoons that was there for snack time from all the visitors.
It’s a popular spot for photo-taking, these guys were doing engagment photos (I’m guessing).
