Ready, Steady, Glide... The Segway Experience Comes to Cheshire

From 1st May 2010, Segway Smiles Limited will start operating an Authorised Segway Tour in Runcorn Cheshire. The off-road Segway experience is great fun for friends and family, mixing nature and eco-friendly technology.

Runcorn, United Kingdom, April 19, 2010 --( Saturday 1st May 2010 sees the official launch of a new company: Segway Smiles Limited. "We are delighted to be able offer a range of Segway Personal Transporter-based experiences to the people in Cheshire," said Managing Director, Gareth Brandwood. "We hold a firm belief that environmentally friendly forms of transportation, such as the Segway PT, can be a real solution to a part of today’s transport conundrum. With the price of petrol rising and rush-hour congestion getting worse, we are hopeful that more and more people will see the benefits of electric transportation that can efficiently move a single rider from A to B with a minimum of fuss and environmental impact."

Bookings are now being taken for the company’s first public experience - a Segway Authorised Tour, taking place in the Woodland Trust's Big Wood site in Runcorn. The "Big Wood Segway Tour" will give people a great opportunity to try out an off-road Segway PT.

The pilot exercise, organised in association with the Woodland Trust, will encourage an awareness of both the green technology and the woodland area itself, which is tucked away in the heart of Runcorn.

"We hope the tours will encourage people to visit the woods," continues Gareth, "they will re-introduce people to what’s right on their doorstep in a new and innovative way. Segways are a really fun way to experience the outdoors. People smile the moment they climb on-board and that’s what we are all about."
