Segway tours in Tuscany with Go Gas Free

Have you ever tried a Segway? The Segway PT (where PT stands for Personal Transporter) is a two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle that can reach a speed of 12.5 miles per hour (20.1 km/h) and rated for 24 miles (39 kilometres) per charge.

Anyone can learn to use a Segway: it is easy at any age, perfect even for aged and for the ones who have mobility problems. The way it works is able to imitate human balance: a user commands the Segway to go forward by shifting its weight forward on the platform, and backward by shifting its weight backward; to turn, the user presses the handlebar to the left or the right. In Italy, the use of Segway is permitted on the sidewalks, bicycle paths, parks, etc i.e. you have to follow the same rules as well as pedestrians or bicycles. In Italy it’s still not common to see a Segway on the street, unless for guided tours.

We had the occasion to try the Segway thanks to Go Gas Free, a brand by AT Moving s.n.c., Official Segway Dealer for the Livorno and Pisa area operating around the whole Tuscany. We had a guided tour on the seafront of Livorno leaving from Ardenza and reaching Terrazza Mascagni. It was really a good experience not only because driving a Segway gives a sense of freedom, but also because we understood that there are many benefits. These benefits are that it is easy to be managed, space-saving, does not need tax and insurance, it’s green because it works on rechargeable batteries, the consumption of the Segway is really very low and – last but not the least – it’s funny!

We mentioned a lot of benefits of Segway but there is one more: thanks to the collaboration with Livorno's Paraplegics Association, Segway tours are barrier-free! Accessible tourism should be a reality for everyone as well as erasing differences: Go Gas Free has it all with the Genny™ 2.0, a special Segway for people with disabilities. Those who uses the traditional wheelchairs knows what problems they encounter in their daily use. Genny™ 2.0, like a Segway, allows you to move just moving the upper part of your body forward to move forward, and backward to slow down and brake. You can easily understand that there are many benefits: be able to hold the hand while walking with your partner, hold an umbrella when it rains, take photos, enjoy the scenery, etc.
