Gliding Revolution

The Gliding Revolution crew helps visitors and Austin residents explore the scenic waterscapes and downtown areas of their beloved city. They lead tours on land and on the water via bikes, Segways, and kayaks that head to destinations such as Lady Bird Lake and downtown Austin. Stops along the way include the Texas state capitol building, Lady Bird Lake, historic Sixth street, and the world-famous Congress Bridge bats.

Additionally, Gliding Revolution plants sports teams, school groups, and corporate work groups atop Segways for team-building activities that bolster cooperative problem-solving skills. They also maintain a strict emphasis on safety by beginning each tour with an exercise in Segway operation while suiting up their guests with protective head gear and inflatable sumo suits.
