Calling all 50+ women in Bayside, Flushing, Whitestone, Little Neck, etc. (Northeast Queens) who want to socialize, develop new friendships in the community and get their steps in!
Join us for casual outdoor walks in scenic venues in our beautiful Northeast Queens parks.
Single, married, divorced, widowed all welcome. The only requirement is the desire to socialize, build new friendships and improve your level of fitness.
We are a casual friendly walking group. No heavy duty walking as we are not a hiking group. Our walks take place on Saturdays (occasionally on Sundays), are about 2 miles long and approximately one hour. You can walk at your own pace and all levels of fitness are welcome!
After our walks, we'll continue the conversation over brunch at a local eatery and get to know each other better.
Ladies, you don't have to walk alone. Come join us!
ANNUAL MEETUP FEE: There is an annual group fee of $7.00, payable in exact change on the first walk that you attend each year. As a group organizer, I am billed $215.00/year by Meetup.com. The annual group fee of $7.00 helps me to recoup some of the cost, as well as for my time and efforts to plan events, and run and maintain the group and website.
WAIVER: Your participation in the Bayside Women’s 50 Plus Social Walking Group, acknowledges your acceptance that while walking is generally a safe and healthy form of exercise, there are certain inherent risks which accompany any form of outdoor activity.
By joining Bayside Women's 50 Plus Social Walking Group and RSVP'ing to and attending our events, carpools and brunches, you fully assume the risks (including but not limited to physical injury and/or health related problems) associated with walking in a public park which involves sharing the park with other walkers, joggers, bicyclists and rollerbladers and release the organizer and event host and their representatives from any and all liability in connection therewith. Your organizer and event host is strictly a volunteer with no special training or qualifications, whose sole purpose is bringing together members of our community for friendship and healthy activity. The organizer and event host is not responsible for your safety or actions or anyone else's.
Members are not permitted to advertise other groups or events on Bayside Women's 50 Plus Social Walking Group's Meetup page or at our events, or join the group with the sole intent of doing so. Members who violate this policy may be removed from the group.
Our walks are outdoors and therefore weather-dependent. The organizer has the right to postpone or cancel an event at any time, due to the weather forecast or for any other reason.
We take photos of our members during our events and they are posted in the group's photo section as well as on Facebook and other social media or websites. If you do not want to have your photo taken during an event and have it posted, please feel free to let the organizer know so we can honor your request.
