Action Segway Tours introduces a new and environmentally
friendly approach to explore Big Bear Lake by means of electric two-wheeled
Segway Personal Transporters (Segway PT). Guests can now enjoy a fun and
educational tour of the mountain resort on a Segway x2 model, which has the ability to navigate varied
terrain with minimal environmental impact.
The two-hour exploration
tour traverses on sidewalks, paths and paved roads including some back roads
where only Big Bear locals are familiar with. Each tour is guided by two or
more certified Segway tour guides who identify iconic Big Bear landmarks along
the way, and educate guests about Big Bear’s rich history and the surrounding flora
and fauna. In spring 2012 Action Segway Tours plans to expand its tours onto
forest trails for an off-road adventure experience.

provide are state-of-the-art,” said Action Segway Tours Owner and Operator
Belinda Bain. “They have beefier tires with the ability to go off-road and they

Each tour begins with an
orientation that teaches riders how to start, stop and turn the Segway PT. The
training includes a small obstacle course of cones to ensure every individual knows
how to control the two-wheeled device. Each rider is equipped with a helmet and
an electronic receiver with ear piece to conveniently hear instructions from
the tour guide.
“The best part about
Segways is they are so much fun and easy to operate,” added Bain.
