13. Ride a Segway


Number 13 on my 30 before 30 list was to ride a Segway. A Segway is a two wheeled self balancing electric scooter. You have to be quite balanced and aware of how you shift your weight to steer and stay upright! Now you can get hoverboards with no handlebars…

Near us we have a forest where you can hire segways for an hour to whizz round the forest on. My lovely partner surprised me with this experience for my birthday last year. Now considering my birthday is in August we had a very very soggy day for it! But that actually made it more fun. Also no one else had booked on our session so we had a private tutorial. It was super muddy singing through the forest really felt like off roading. I did quite a bit of squeaking and giggling as I bravely went over the bumps. I have no idea what kind of speeds these things can go but it felt very quick!

Has anyone else ridden a Segway or hoverboard? I absolutely loved it and had a smile on my face the whole time. Even better after getting absolutely soaked and muddy I had a bath and a yummy lasagne cooked for me! (Well it was my birthday!)
