The encyclopedic guides at Triangle Glides recount tales and anecdotes that testify to Raleigh’s colorful history on tours that usher groups across the city on self-balancing Segways. Before tour groups depart from City Market, pilots strap on provided helmets and soak up safety tips in an indoor training session that covers the basics of stopping, turning, gliding, and starring in spontaneous musical montages. The two-wheeled odyssey commences as guides comment through a wireless audio pack that relays interesting factoids about the M.T. Pope House, Shimmer Wall, Nash Square, and other highlights.

Triangle Glides

The mobile historians at Triangle Glides lead tours through the most exciting locations in Raleigh's past and present. They spin tales as groups glide past modern and historic landmarks on the Downtown Discovery tour or learn of riots, duels, and public hangings during the more macabre Raleigh's Darkest Secrets tour. In other tours, groups travel into the 19th-century neighborhood of Oakwood and enjoy the lush grounds of Oakwood Cemetery, the final resting place of nearly 1,500 Confederate soldiers.

This sort of exploration is the foundation of Triangle Glides, but its Segways are only part of the adventure. To explore the area's waters, the company sells standup paddleboards. Resident instructors can help newbies master these watercraft during seasonal paddleboard lessons on nearby Lake Wheeler, where paddlers find calm waters surrounded by leafy forests. Triangle Glides also sells electric bikes, fitness Trikkes, and bootless skates, and leads photography workshops.
