I saw my first real-life Segway the other week. How? Well, just around the corner, at First & Fir, is a rental place that’s just opening. They rent out the machines in 2 hour blocks, one hour training, one hour riding. If you call today (604/734.9280), you can get a free training rental from them, between May 2nd & May 8th.

Apologies for the uncritical advertorial, but it’s a Segway! I’ll be critical once I’ve tried it out, this Sunday.
