For Deborah's birthday I decided to hire a Segway for the day. It just so happens that the UK distributor for Segway is based in Matlock, just 20 mins way from our cottage. Even better Cromford Meadows just outside Matlock Bath was the ideal place to play around with the all-terrain version of the Segway.
We had an excellent afternoon, and even invited some local friends to join us. We all decided that hiring a Segway is a must for several other birthdays coming up this year. Bombing across the grass at 12 mph, herding sheep and splashing through puddles on a Segway is just great fun. Everybody learnt how to use it in about a minute, it's so intuitive. Nobody fell off, and everybody ended their turn with a big smile on their face and a plea to do it again.
