Segways Take to the Trails


There they go!

I’ll admit that I chuckled when I read a recent article on about how Segways are set to take to the trails. Nothing would be stranger to me than seeing a group on Segways coming around the bend out on a wilderness trail. I was surprised the first time we were passed by a group on mountain bikes, but Segways? Oh My! When I thought about it a little longer, why not. If it doesn’t tear up the trail it may just provide an outdoor experience that some people may not otherwise enjoy. If you’ve ever ridden a Segway though you would probably agree that these are not for all people on all terrains. I imagine grandfathers in Bermuda shorts and grandmothers in their “traveling” outfits moseying down a nice flat pathway. Rocky inclines, probably not. But you never know!
