You may know a great route through your city or a trail along a stream that is fun to ride. A group ride lets you share this knowledge with others. Segway group glides are not just for those who own and regularly use them, though. Tours are becoming popular as sight seeing vehicles, as well. They are a good option for those traveling to a tourist destination and want to take in the sights, but do not want the usual tour. You might want the time to enjoy the sights that comes with a walking tour, but have trouble walking. Thanks to Segway tours, those with arthritis or breathing problems can now enjoy a slower paced tour of many popular cities. Whether you own a Segway or are using one for a tour, participating in a group glide is a unique, enjoyable experience.
While the Segway HT is not very common there is a niche market for it.
