Half Moon Bay, California (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
Guests and visitors of The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay are invited to enjoy exhilarating Segway® Tours around the oceanfront resort, golf course, and coastal trails around the property.
Offered Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, 90-minute Segway Tours are $75 per person and include equipment and helmet use, 30 minutes of instruction, and one hour of riding. The one-on-one instructional session, which precedes the ride, includes practice in an enclosed training area followed by instruction on gentle inclines – a stunning highlight of the coastal trail used for the guided tours.
The self-balancing, motorized Segway Personal Transporters are ridden standing up, with only a slight movement forward or backward needed for propulsion. Navigating and steering is accomplished via a simple twist of the turning grip, allowing riders to scoot along the resort’s network of paved pathways while enjoying the spectacular sights and sounds that envelop the coastal setting. Start times for the tours are 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Fridays and 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Times adjust at the close of the summer season, and separate arrangements can be made for groups. Participants must be 16 years of age or older, and equipment speeds will be limited to 12.5 miles per hour. Tour reservations may be made at 650-712-7040
