What happens on the day?
As you enter Grafham Water you will find the Segway Events pod situated next door to the bike rental shop. Here you will register and sign the necessary paperwork before being placed in your safety equipment. Once the group is ready, your instructor will give you a brief introduction to the Segway along with a quick demonstration. The real excitement will then begin as you take your steps onto the Segway and practice using only your weight and a handle bar to transport you. Before heading off to the Segway course you will take part in some Segway games to get you familiar with the Segway and allow you to build confidence in your skills. Once complete your instructor will take you around the Segway course showing you any obstacles to be aware of whilst you are racing through the woodland. It is then up to you to take to the mighty course on this marvellous machine, as you race around the woodland the adrenaline will pump through your body and leave you feeling astounded at the thrill of the Segway experience.
