Welcome to Ride
Segway - Segway Adventures in the
North-West of England!
Ride Segway offers Segway
Tours and adventures at five sites across the North-West.
Valley Country Park in Preston, and
Fir Tree Farm,
on the border between St Helens and Skelmersdale, near
Croxteth Country Park in Liverpool, and newly added
in Blackpool &
Haigh Hall Country Park in Wigan.
We use the latest equipment,
including the Segway X2 for off-road terrain. It's equipped
with large tyres to ensure you stay the right way up whilst
gliding through challenging areas. We only turn up to the site for pre-bookings
booked through RideSegway (or our partners).
We're available most days at either site, but always recommended
booking early. Segways normally produce a lot of questions, luckily
we've produced a Questions page to
help you find your answer fast.
What is a Segway X2 and how
does it work?
The Segway PT senses the lean of
the rider with the assistance of five micro-machined angular
rate sensors and two accelerometers that sense the angle of
the PT, with respect to gravity, at 100 times per second. It
balances the rider by applying forces to the ground in the
direction of the lean. If you lean forward the PT applies
motor torque to the wheel to push it forward, bring you
upright and balance you. When you lean back, it applies
reverse torque to slow you down and balance you accordingly.
You get the sense of power and speed, yet you also feel a
sense of control. It all feels natural, intelligent and
safe. Although they're ideal for short jaunts, Segway PTs
can travel as far as 24 miles/38 km on a single battery
charge, depending on terrain, payload and riding style.
