Riding a segway is easy to master and after a brief lesson in how to handle the new mode of transport, we quickly became adept at stopping and turning, enabling us to set off cross country.
The offices at Experience The Country are set within acres of farmland with many tracks and bridleways, making it an ideal location for a segway cross country circuit.
The segways have been specially fitted with large tractor style tyres to easily cope with the rough terrain around the farm. We went up steep slopes, over fields, splashed through puddles and scared a few pheasants. The segways have a maximum speed of 12 miles per hour which is comfortable enough to handle but challenging enough to make it an exciting ride around the estate.
I would thoroughly recommend the segways for a family fun day trip or a party of friends wanting some outdoor fun.
