Want To Try A Segway?
New York, NY
- It doesn’t have a tail pipe spewing pollution. It doesn’t make any noise. It
travels faster than a car stuck in a traffic and uses a fraction of it’s
energy—which means it is not dependant on oil from the Middle East, or
anywhere else for that matter. For older people it can offer a previously
unimagined dignity of movement and mobility. Still, it's maligned in the
press and by other so called activists and city officials. Form your own
opinion about Segways away from the hype and press by actually riding one
yourself. We will be at Union Square Park on an ongoing basis, Thursday
afternoons (weather permitting) at 3:00pm. Please e-mail
[email protected] if you would like to sign up for a quick trial. Yes,
it's FREE, but there is a catch. As we think these machines can benefit
older people the most we are requesting that if you are under 50 you bring a
parent or an elderly neighbor.
