Travelling around a city or resort on Segways or bicycle is a lot of fun. Gran Canaria is a fantastic place to explore either from a bicycle or segway. Let us consider the segway first of all, then we will look at the advantages of a bicycle!
Being on a segway is an experience in itself. However if you are visiting some of Gran Canarias sights then this is an added bonus of the experience.
Tours on a Segway vehicle can cover a larger area than if you tried walking. This is due to the speed the segways can travel. A segway can enable the tourist to see more and then stay longer at the best locations. You will soon get the hang of zipping around the streets. Just use your body to make the Segway move right, left, back and forward.
From an environmental point of view they are a lot greener than motorcycles, scooters as they do not produce harmful fumes.
Bikes are great to hire as they are usually easier to handle as most people can ride a bike. Also if you are travelling with children and want the whole family to experience an outdoor excursion then this is a good choice. Also there are a variety of bike to choose from. There are road bikes for the experienced cyclist who wants to ride the mountains. There are the fold away bikes for city and urban use. Also family bikes that can seat young children. Cycling is a great way to be in ther fresh air and see the sights of Gran Canaria.
