Segway Lessons For All!


This is your chance to learn to ride a Segway Personal Transporter and 'glide' around Lake Merritt or through beautiful Jack London Square. Hands-On Instruction and a two hour glide, only $75 per person (under 18 requires signature of parent or guardian). We can teach you to ride a Segway PT, or your money Back!

This is a fun 2 hour guided tour that includes plenty of riding time. You get to see some nice sceneries and hang out with a group of excited Segway riders! We're the only rental agency that has every model of Segway!

We start with a video that explains in detail all of the basic operational aspects of the Segway PT. Then we practice basic movements indoors. We eventually move to a parking lot, and then finally to a bike path. If you've been a little hesitant or nervous about trying the Segway PT, this is the way to go. We take as much time as you need to get up and going.

You'll learn the basic aspects of Segway PT vehicle operation and how the amazing Segway works. You'll go from the black key (slowest) to the red key (fastest) by the end of your lesson. Try the Segway over varying surfaces and terrain. Then go off by yourself! This is a safe, thorough and convenient way to learn Segway vehicle operation and it's Tons of Fun!

Visit Segway of Oakland today! We're located at 212 International Blvd. Oakland, CA, rear warehouse off Second Avenue - Three blocks from Lake Merritt at the corner of International Blvd. and Second Avenue in Oakland. (East 14th changes into International Blvd at the lake very near our shop, so it may appear as the corner of E 14th and 2nd Ave. on some maps.)

Located in the warehouse behind Ao Sen Restaurant. Enter off 2nd Avenue. Open every day from 9:30 am to 7:30pm (4:30 pm or earlier for lessons). Reservations recommended, but not required. 510-832-2429.

A great way to learn is to participate in a tour. Most of the Oakland lessons are given in a tour format, except that we adjust to give participants time to ride on their own, and we don't have a tour format where we include historical information about the surrounding areas.

Some people with physical impairments may be able to successfully ride a Segway PT.

Basic training techniques modeled after adaptive training methods used at ski schools.
