The wheel's invention was momentous, replacing previous attempts at roll-based locomotion, such as man-sized hamster balls or shoes made entirely of ball bearings. Reap the benefits of innovation with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a self-guided, 60- to 90-minute segway tour of historic downtown Plymouth with My Seg Adventures (up to an $80 value). Today's Groupon is valid for a 60-minute tour Friday–Sunday or a 90-minute tour Monday–Thursday.
My Seg Adventures guides train wayfarers in the art of segway navigation before equipping them for a jet-setting glide through historic downtown Plymouth. Each ride commences with an instructional tutorial, as riders learn riding basics, safety precautions, and the boyhood nicknames of the segway’s inventors. Strap on helmets and zoom past historic remains such as the front wall of the Daisy Air Rifle headquarters site, housing the firm whose creation starred in A Christmas Story's story. The provided map reveals Plymouth's other temptations, with riders seeking a frozen-yogurt fix at Kemnitz Candies or restive shower beneath Kellogg Park Fountain's torrents of Apple Jacks. Take a pre-return pit stop along a verdant stretch of Hines Drive, an 18-mile road and parkway surrounded by trees and dotted with picnic areas and historic sites.
Droves of Segways meander past historic homes, factories, and miles of parks during Seg Adventures's Plymouth Area tours. On the list of sites to see is the Wilcox House, whose scandalous history is revealed during guided tours. Segway riders can free roam as well, exploring the city's attractions, markets, and public restrooms with a self-guided tour that lasts 60 minutes. Free roam sites include the Daisy Air Rifle–headquarters or the Alter Motor Car–factory.
