After watching a safety video, choosing helmets, and completing quick private lessons, groups depart from Segway Off Road’s headquarters in Oakland Hills in search of hidden majesty within the redwoods. Along the way, tours stop off at panoramic vistas, angle for close-up shots of the Chabot telescopes, and watch the rushing waters of nearby flowing waterfalls.

Segway Off Road
Segway Off Road strips the wheels off of timid city Segways, replacing them with rugged off-road tires ready to explore the rambling wilderness that still sprawls just outside San Francisco. Their tours send riders rolling right into the heart of these outdoorsy sites, tackling trails in the Redwoods or exploring the history and shops of Jack London Square’s waterfront. The adrenalin tour ramps up the action, taking experienced riders on a high speed zip through the meadows and trails of the Redwood Forest. Special tours test rider’s mettle and imagination, challenging them with everything from marathon sessions in the Redwoods to rousing games of Segway polo.
In addition to keeping their fleet ready for wilderness excursion, Segway Off Road's resident mechanics also trick out and customize personal Segways with upgrades including gold plating, hyped-up motors, and wheel spikes to take out cyclists competing for road space.
