Lesson / Rent


This is your chance to learn to ride a Segway Personal Transporter and ‘glide’ around Lake Merritt or through beautiful Jack London Square. Hands-On Instruction and a two hour glide, only $75 per person (under 18 requires signature of parent or guardian). We can teach you to ride a Segway PT, or your money Back!

This is a fun 2 hour guided tour that includes plenty of riding time. You get to see some nice sceneries and hang out with a group of excited Segway riders! We’re the only rental agency that has every model of Segway!

We start with a video that explains in detail all of the basic operational aspects of the Segway PT. Then we practice basic movements indoors. We eventually move to a parking lot, and then finally to a bike path. If you’ve been a little hesitant or nervous about trying the Segway PT, this is the way to go. We take as much time as you need to get up and going.

You’ll learn the basic aspects of Segway PT vehicle operation and how the amazing Segway works. You’ll go from the black key (slowest) to the red key (fastest) by the end of your lesson. Try the Segway over varying surfaces and terrain. Then go off by yourself! This is a safe, thorough and convenient way to learn Segway vehicle operation and it’s Tons of Fun!
