What we're about

Meet other local members to ride, paddle, explore trails, talk gear and trade tips. We are here for anything fun outdoors and indoors. Some of our popular events include cycling, kayaking and skating but we are not limited to those. For example, hiking if there are leaders and enough interested members.

All levels of cyclists are welcome. We primarily do recreational rides on paved roads or trails. There will be group rides on streets with traffic. There will be group rides on the rails to trails that anyone can ride. Many are geared to a relaxed pace of 10-15 mph, distance varies. We may also plan some other rides such as mountain, fitness, and road biking, etc. if there is interest.

All levels of paddlers are welcome. Many of us have kayaks but SUPs and canoes are also welcome and you can rent many places if you don't own. We primarily will be doing recreational paddling on local rivers with not much current, suitable for beginners or intermediate level. Some locations may be more advanced.

There will also be other activities posted from time to time such as skating, social events or other activities that fit within the group's topics. The goal is to gather, make new friends and share activities that get you outdoors and/or keep you active.

Your main profile picture should be a clear shot of your face so we can recognize you at events. Pictures of your child, pet, motorcycle, favorite cartoon character or even a group shot (which one are you?) aren't acceptable. If that's a problem you should contact the organizer to discuss it.
