Glide over the ground

Segway through forests or around towns - it's like being on a magic carpet! Standing upright on a Segway gives you a great view too.


Segways are two wheeled, self-balancing personal transportation devices. They can be used in a variety of situations including off-road, tours and racing.

To take girls on segways you will need to find a reputable local provider.

Planning checklist

Safety notes

  • All participants must wear protective equipment including helmets.
  • Please note that the Segway is classified as a powered vehicle and subject to Road Traffic law in the UK. As the Segway is deemed not to meet the required safety standards, it is against the law to use a Segway on public roads and pathways.

There are no official Segway instructor qualifications. Most companies will provide in-house training to their instructors. You must make sure that all Segway activities are led by a trained instructor.
