Segway Fort Lauderdale owner Johnathan Rosen views Segways as about as simple to get the hang of as walking (he's seen clients ages 5 to 92 master them). On these jaunts of Fort Lauderdale, groups roll through scenic areas, visit piers, and take optional jaunts down back alleys. There, they can try out their Segways' top speed?roughly 12.5 mph, about as fast as a cheetah wearing substantial ankle weights. As participants roll along, guides can share tidbits about the comings and goings of area celebrities in the area and the Segway's history. There's also plenty of time for participants to talk amongst themselves while a company photographer snaps complimentary action shots.
