When Segways were introduced in 2001, the developers claimed they would reconfigure cities. San Francisco promptly banned them from sidewalks, but has permitted their use on trails and in bike lanes, which means they thrive in Golden Gate Park. Leading the charge is Segway SF Bay, the best of a bunch of Segway rental points located in, or near, the park. There’s perhaps no more thorough way to see every cranny of the park’s 1,000 acres, from the Buffalo Paddock to the Rhododendron Dell, than from atop one of Segway SF’s rides. Their Central Sunset shop, just outside the park, outfits riders with everything they could need, including safety gear and plenty of instruction before cruising away. And for any local who’s simply curious about the contraptions, Segway SF Bay offers free first-time lessons.
