A new mode of transport is bringing waves of excitement to Siblyback Lake - and you won't have to get wet to join in the fun.

Segways, or segway personal transporters, are now available to hire at the country park following a new partnership between South West Lakes Trust and Liskeard segway company Glide and Grin Ltd.

“Siblyback Segway Adventure is a great addition to the wide range of activities already available at Siblyback,” said Tommy Haydu, South West Lakes Trust Bodmin Moor development manager.

“The cycle path around the lake is ideal for walking, wheelchair users and segways as well.”

The two-wheeled battery powered machines, which can reach up to 15MPH, are now available to hire throughout the summer.

Philip Head, director of Glide and Grin said: “My son Joseph and I are looking forward to working in partnership with Siblyback Lake.

“The location is ideal for providing a new, unique, exciting and fun experience for young and old,” he added.

For safety reasons segway users must weigh at least 7 stone but no more than 18 stone, be at least 4’4’’ tall and aged 10 or above.

Children aged between 10 and 15 must be accompanied by a supervising adult.

All users will be trained and supervised.

For more information or to book contact Siblyback on 01579 346 522 or on 07923 888 647.
