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. 

Membership in OTG is limited to 120 people until additional event organizers have been selected. You may still request to join OTG at this time but you will be put onto a wait list until a space opens up. 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'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
