Go Ape Segway

Today was a birthday outing to Go Ape Segway in Swinley Forest near Bracknell. It was a bit weird at first, as you don't expect a two wheeled machine to be able to keep upright by itself, and you can literally lean all over the place without falling off. After a bit of training we headed off to a section where there were 3 courses of varying difficulty, the third one was very winding and had a big downward hill! We were limited to 7mph for this section, but after we headed off onto wider trails in the forest and were allowed to go up to 10.5mph! While this doesn't sound that fast, when you're standing upright on a two wheeled Segway zooming round the forest, its perfectly fast enough!
