It was brilliant. Once you accept there will be feedback from the runners, cyclists and walkers - you know you can just Segway past without any effort. Stand tall and enjoy the experience.

Best fun I've had in tears. It's too bad the Segway's are having a hard time on the beach area as they can be used, and enjoyed by people who can't walk a lot like myself. Took tour with my granddaughter age 14, and enjoyed every minute and I'm 70.
