What You'll Get
Segways are the latest in a long line of recreational vehicles running on alternative energy, and have largely supplanted precursors such as steam-powered stilts and bear-powered tandem bicycles. Save yourself from the hassle of ursine training with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a two-hour segway rental, including helmet and rider orientation, from Segway Evolve in St. Louis Park (a $64.31 value, including tax).
Segway Evolve sends wheelers gliding about the city, trails, and lakes on alternative, high-tech transportation. Before segway adventures, a trained instructor runs renters through a how-not-to-crash course, and keeps craniums safe with a complimentary helmet. LeanSteer technology responds to subtle shifts in balance, ensuring that riders can steer, speed up, or slow down effortlessly down streets and corridors, and dynamic stabilization enables incredible maneuverability such as true zero turning radius. Advanced sensors constantly analyze propulsion and inertia, lending to a driving experience more intuitive than pedaling a unicycle with your hands.

About Evolve Segway
The eco-friendly steeds at Evolve Segway navigate sidewalks just as easily as they roll over lakeside terrain during self-guided, family-friendly Segway tours of the area’s lakes, trails, and nature preserve. The second-generation Segways feature LeanSteer technology, which responds to subtle shifts in balance, and include dynamic stabilization to prevent riders from tipping when they round corners or board rollercoasters. Electric bike rentals also allow visitors to cover large expanses without tiring out. The bikes make exploring Minneapolis' full range of trails easy, while ensuring riders will have enough energy to enjoy the nightlife later on.
Evolve Segway outfits explorers with a helmet and suggested routes, and provides a complimentary 15-minute rider orientation. Without being part of a large tour group, explorers can cruise around the scenic area and the lake at their own pace.
