Something new - I tried an hour of off-road Segwaying last weekend, because my in-laws bought us a session as a Xmas present.
Now I know it looks stupid. That's why everyone sneers at them. But when you're on one, suddenly 12mph seems plenty fast. Especially when you're going over tree roots and through muddy puddles. Especially especially when there's thunder and lightning and hail kicking off all around!
It feels like dog-sledding - or charioteering - with an invisible team.
It looks silly ... and yet it's awesome fun.
Much like sex, really :-)
