What we're about

This meet-up is sponsored by the Indiana Volkssport Assocation (INVA) which part of American Volkssport Association and the International Federation of Popular Sports (IVV) (http://www.ivv-web.org). We promote walking and some bike meetups all across Indiana. Our walks are guided or on marked trails and typically are from three to six miles (5K to 10K). Trails are in cities, small towns, parks, forests, anywhere there is a pleasant or interesting area to walk. Join us and have fun, meet new people and get fit! We also do biking meetups.

Much of the walk is on paved roads and will take place no matter the weather conditions, so participants are advised to dress appropriately. Period clothing is encouraged, but not required.
