Less prone to explosions, bird collisions, and painful butt-burns, the segway has edged out the jetpack as the official ride of the 23rd century. Practice on these leisurely chariots of fire with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a Foster Avenue Beach and Montrose Harbor Segway Glide from Bike and Roll Chicago (a $50 value). Trips leave from Bike and Roll Chicago's Foster Avenue Beach location only. Wearing closed-toe athletic shoes is strongly recommended.

Bike and Roll Chicago ups the ante on upright mobility with its tour of the Chicago lakefront. Guests will receive a brief training session on how to operate the segway, with a helmet included for premium cranial cradling. With the necessary knowledge accrued, guests will take to the lakefront path on a guided tour past Foster Avenue Beach, Montrose Harbor, and a portion of Lincoln Park, enjoying the beauty of Lake Michigan while avoiding the tempting banshee wails of its seductive sirens. As guests glide along the shore, they'll be led by a knowledgeable guide and likely immersed in the active atmosphere that defines the Chicago summer. Roll past people tanning and playing along the beach as the city's stoic skyline looks on like a wise old concrete-and-steel buzzard.

Trips are available at two-hour intervals throughout the day, with the day's first trip at 9:30 a.m. and its final trip at 5:30 p.m. For out-of-towners, this trip provides a quick and efficient way to spin down the spine of the city's big shoulders without the mess of mass transit. Lifelong Chicago residents, on the other hand, can see their hometown in a whole new way while they continue their search for the pirate gold of Daniel Burnham.

Bike and Roll Chicago

With a fleet of futuristic Segways and classic beach-cruiser bicycles, Bike and Roll Chicago outfits travelers with wheeled transportation to explore the city's paved surfaces. Tour guides lead groups through Millennium Park and along the lakefront to catch the skyline when illuminated by sunrises or backlit by one of Chicago's many moons. Misty Lake Michigan breezes ruffle riders' hair peeking through helmets as they pass by sailboats swaying lazily in the harbors and fishermen casting lines for trout and perch. Bike and Roll Chicago designs routes around classic architectural landmarks such as the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum as well as popular neighborhoods home to a number of restaurants and art festivals.

This was a ton of fun, and fairly easy to master.

This was a great tour. Ryan was a great guide - timing was great. Plenty of time to stop and take pics but kept moving too. Great way to see the city with little tidbits about the city along the way.
