This was an interesting find. Thanks goes out to Ginny From The Blog, a fellow blogeague, for letting me use her camera that night.
It looks like a Segway shop is opening up in City Market. I’ve seen similar shops in urban areas around the country and their main service is to rent out these two-wheeled contraptions. There currently are officers on segways in downtown and you can usually see them during large events. Are these the replacements for the horses?
I have never ridden one but I’m sure curiosity will take over, especially on a nice spring day, and I’ll give one a ride. Maybe one day we’ll have downtown segway tours like the one I saw in Washington DC.

That is cool.
Similarly, there is a place on Hillsborough Street across from NCSU that supposedly rents out (& sells) motor scooters too.
Ok, can you get a phone number or keep me updated on this place? I have to be one of the first to rent one and test out. I’ve always wanted to ride one. Hmm a side street Segway race?
I was planning on updating this post with more info on the place once they open. I’ll add some pics of riders downtown and maybe some video. We’ll just wait and see, I’m excited.
