Rollin' On The River

.
I’ve never ridden a Segway and it looks like a lot of fun. Glide St. Louis Tours will zip you around downtown or Forest Park on these gizmos. I featured the company once before in the early days of this blog (click here). Gotta go join them one day soon – bet I’d get some good pictures. I generally avoid taking photographs while driving (although, um, I’ve made exceptions, and I only do it with a point and shoot). Can you get in trouble for taking pix on a Segway?

This makes for a nice (sorry) segue to the Thursday Arch Series, which is tomorrow.

Love these things, but have never ridden one, either. Yes, I think you can get in trouble taking a picture while riding one - trouble like running into a tree!

Ooh, the pun... Looks like a hoot zipping around town with a guide and narrative. While I enjoy hiking thru our urban areas, add anything with wheels and it's a sure bet on fun.

Lol, I would love to try one!

I will probably try one of these when I'm too old for the bicycle.

I would love to try this too! They look like so much fun.

We have them here too, but haven't tried them yet. The first to own them was the police.
