When you were little, you probably thought the future would bring flying cars, robot servants, and hologram phones. Well, the future is here, and though we still don’t have any of those awesome inventions, we do have the Trikke—a motor-powered tricycle that you ride standing up.
Steve's Segway Tours and Trikke Chicago rents the three-wheeled vehicles for guided tours or solo jaunts around the lake, Chicago parks, and museums. The electric Trikkes propel riders forward and up the steep, treacherous hills Illinois is known for. Steve’s also rents out fitness Trikkes, which eschew the motor and are operated by riders swinging the body-powered vehicle from side to side in a carving motion. This twisting motion works the entire body, and the core in particular.
Trikke Chicago is sister to Steve's Segway Tours. For those interested in a more traditional tour vehicle, Steve’s offers Segway tours. All tours are led by charismatic guides, many of whom are up-and-comers in Chicago’s legendary theater and improvisation scene.
