Ride Segway at Haigh Country Park!
Tuesday 9th July, 2013

EXPERIENCE a ‘wheely’ great new way of discovering the delights of Haigh Country Park!

Visitors can now tour the park on Segways, the two-wheeled electric vehicles used as a way of travelling around towns and cities across the world and promoted as the ‘greenest’ way to travel.

Stuart Rowlands, owner of RideSegway which has brought the activity to Haigh, said: “I first travelled on a Segway during a trip to Madrid and it was a fantastic experience. There are quite strict rules in the UK compared to most of Europe as to where Segways can be used and I thought it would be a great idea to introduce the experience to people over here by bringing the vehicles to some of the north west’s best parks.

“Whether you’re looking for an entertaining family activity to take part in or are a business wanting to organise a corporate day out, our sessions can be tailored to meet your requirements. Get in touch to find out more!”

Stuart Murray, Chief Executive of leisure and culture provider WLCT, said: “We are delighted to welcome RideSegway to Haigh Country Park. These machines provide an alternative way of getting around the site to see some of the 250 acres of beautiful parkland and woodland just waiting to be discovered.

“I’d encourage anyone planning a day out at Haigh Country Park to consider factoring in a trip on a Segway as part of the fun!”

Cllr Chris Ready, Cabinet member for Leisure and Culture, said: “It’s always great to see a new activity introduced to one of Wigan’s premier tourist destinations, and I’m sure we’ll see many people riding Segways at the park during this glorious summer weather!”
