Do you enjoy going out of the city for a full day hike, a half day bicycle ride - or just an afternoon walk in a park ?
This group is for anyone willing to do active events during week-ends.
Mostly based around 2 activities - but not necessarily limited to it :
hiking or cycling (& in this case : mountain bike OR road cycling).
Amateur level only !
Regular events will be held in the many parks and forests surrounding Paris, starting from a location easy to reach by metro or close to a suburban train station.
Let’s exercise while having fun and meeting others … Sense of humour is a must, as we plan to be a social sports group first.
Anyone who wishes to, is welcome to bring along some food or a drink to share - as there should always be a few of breaks during the events.
Level for hikes (easy/moderate/hard) : 15k to 26 km day or afternoon hikes (average speed : 4 km / hour, or faster - depending on the guide).
For cycling trips we will do according to the group’s level but never above moderate (as there are specific Meetup groups for triathletes, cyclists or marathonians).
As it is also nice to go cycling or hiking further away from Paris, we can later extend this group to activities like camping & river kayak, hiking or cycling week-ends in central France or along the french coast, …
Events willnot oftenbe cancelled due to the weather - aseven if it is sometimes raining for a short time or not too warm during the day, it's alwaysvery good for health(incl. the immune system) to be walking or exercising in the outdoors for a couple of hours ... among other benefits of hiking & relaxed cycling.
Looking forward to sharing the joy of outdoor activities with you,
