Segway!

On Saturday, Matt and I played with Segways.I’ve got to admit, I always thought they looked like a cross between the Jetsons and some sort of weird circus act. Like something an engineer with too much time on his hands and a love of futuristic things would come up with.  I was certain I would feel off balanced and scared.

What I was not prepared for was how much I would love doing it! After the first few minutes, it starts to feel fun and so natural.  We took a 1 hour tour in downtown Richmond.  It was so so fun.  I don’t know how it would feel on a really crowded street, but it was so fun to be able to glide– it really feels like gliding–the suspension and turning radius is amazing.  I know it looks really awkward and weird but I recommend it.

Has anyone else tried the Segway?
