Segways have proven to be a safe and popular way to explore a city's skyline, edging out catapult tours and window-washing temp gigs.

This deal may be redeemed as early as May 5, and tours depart at 7 p.m.
Bike and Roll Chicago's segway-savvy guides lead rolling packs of two-wheelers on a sunset scoot along Chicago's stunning lakefront. Chicago Segways at Sunset groups set sail from Millennium Park as dusk emerges, rolling through Grant Park as the gyroscopically engineered vehicles carry tourists to the lakefront to glimpse the skyline view in full, ensconced by water-born breezes and cloud-born fishermen casting out their lines for trout, perch, and amphibious Chicago–style hot dogs. Rolling south along the lake, pairs soak in unparalleled views of Soldier Field, Shedd Aquarium, and the Field Museum, all softly illuminated by the sun's slow descent behind the legendary Windy City skyline. Bike and Roll Chicago strongly recommends that riders wear closed-toe athletic shoes to ensure comfort and protect from sentient segways that are jealous of your toes.
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.
