What we're about

Our Motto: Fun people, fun events- accidental exercise!

We're going to be biking, kayaking, hiking, backpacking, camping, travel, as well as whatever social events we choose! Just come, have fun, make friends, and get exercise- accidentally.

We are not intimidating. Our bike rides won't be races, our hikes aren't warrior challenges. We will just do these things more leisurely, fun, and SOCIAL. You attend other groups events and MEET people- you attend Get Movin KC events and make FRIENDS!

Membership options:
It cost almost $200 per year to have a group on the Meetup site! So, rather than collecting, and tracking cash donations at every event, I've created 3 membership options.
-----
SILVER- FREE- I want anyone that wants or needs this kind of support, activity, and fun, to be able to participate. So there is a NO CHARGE Silver membership for those that are not able, or not sure, about donating. The only requirement is that you are ACTIVE, and post a photo.
-----
PLATINUM and GOLD memberships- $10 minimum donation OR host at least 2 events every 3 months- same benefits- just a matter of whether you want to pay for the membership, or host events and be considered an ACTIVE member! The Platinum/Gold membership has more perks over the free membership. Benefits include no photo requirement, invitation to Priority events, and Premium events, and be a part of a wonderful group, and make lifetime friends.

I've attached a document in the photos, that gives a breakdown, benefits, and costs of memberships. Basically, you can get the membership with perks for either a small donation, or a little attendance and volunteering. I ask that you do the Platinum membership, if possible, to help me with the cost to run this group. Please review the document and let me know if any questions.

**the membership levels are a work in progress, so updates are possible at any time.

You can donate via Venmo, Paypal, or CASH apps for free. Or $10 minimum in cash. If you want to donate via Meetup, they charge $1.36 on $10, so minimum is $11.36. Cheaper to donate 1 of the other ways.

NOTE! This is a PREMIUM event, so it is by INVITE only. Meaning, if you are on the attending list, you are invited to ride, so all you have to do is show up. This ride is strictly working on speed, distance, and group ride etiquette and skill. This is not a casual ride! This is the reason for 'invite only'. Any issues with this, please send me, Dana Kolka, a private message to discuss. Let’s Hit the Road!

Ugly Joe's has a burger special on Wednesday so let's grab a burger and beer afterwards..

Lake Olathe Paddle

Olathe Lake Boat Ramp

Its getting close to the end of summer, so lets get in at least one more Kayaking/SUP paddle. Lake Olathe is not very big, but enough for a good couple of hours of floating around. This is one of the few lakes in the metro that does NOT require a permit. The weather is supposed to be mid-70s, so perfect for an afternoon lazy float. Required: You are required to have a PFD. We will meet at the Olathe Lake Boat Ramp.
