Off The Grid

This a social group for people who are interested in environmentally friendly, non-motorized activities like cycling, hiking, camping, snowshoeing, skiing, skating and more. Event groups are small with typically six to eight people participating. Rides are intentionally small as it makes for a more social ride, a faster ride, a safer ride and it eliminates the need for a sweep. Cyclists in smaller groups are also less likely to get separated from the group or lost.

Please attach an actual photo of yourself for the profile photo.

Members are not solicited to help pay for the running of OTG. Donations will not be accepted.  

Please note that this group subscribes to the "2 Strikes" No-show rule. 

Members may be removed after several months of inactivity.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
