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. Today's Groupon gives you the chance to practice on these leisurely chariots of fire lest the future overtake you at 12.5 miles per hour. For $25, you get up to three hours of Segway riding—including a lesson, guided cruise of downtown Oakland, and free-riding time (a $55 value)—at Segway of Oakland.

The guided portion of your Segway tour hits all the major Oakland landmarks while teaching you everything you need to know in order to handle a Segway PT on almost any terrain at any speed—the most comprehensive Segsperience in Oakland. Green transportation greenhorns can get the hang of their electric-powered steed by trying out some moves indoors before experimenting further in the parking lot and adjacent bike path. After that, you'll speed off to Jack London Square, alongside Lake Merritt, and through downtown, testing your new riding and conversational transitioning skills on varied and uneven terrain such as gravel, dirt, and fields of skulls. If you're feeling groovy at the end of an hour and a half or less, you can take your ride out for up to another 90 minutes of unstructured free riding.

Segway of Oakland tailors its lessons to any type of rider, be they a family of four seeking a stress-free way to spend lazy afternoons together or a hardcore group of rebellious bikers who lost their insurance and need a new way to roll. Locals needing a fresh perspective on their hometown and out-of-towners who forgot their hoverboards can both get their kicks with today's Groupon to Segway of Oakland.

An appointment is required. Must be 14 or older to participate. This deal is not valid August 1–10, 2010.

Bay Area Segway

Bay Area Segway harbors a fleet of off-road Segway x2s and street-friendly Segway i2s, which renters mount for city tours, lessons, and offsite events. Both tours and lessons begin with a video overview of segway basics to acquaint the rider and the ridden. Tours then traverse the city, with guides sharing historical tidbits on Bay Area Segway’s oak-ruled past on a route that hits Jack London Square, the downtown sector, and the shores of Lake Merritt. Group lessons jet through skill-building exercises in parking lots and on bike paths. After building confidence, students graduate to higher speeds and more varied terrains, such as bridges and grassy fields, and lessons culminate in an independent ride. Bay Area Segway can also enrich team-building events for companies or exceptionally competitive families with segway demonstrations.

No tips to share, Just go and do it and see Oakland at its best. Enjoyed the tour with Rich and he was very funny. Told several friends to go and do it.
