What we're about

Welcome to The Mile High Ramblers Meetup, a growing network of walking and hiking enthusiasts who value the 2-3 mile per hour pace. Together, we slow down, explore, grow, connect, learn, and heal through a variety of walking trips and events across the greater Denver Metro Area in Colorado. So what does it mean to "ramble"? Rambling is simply "the enjoyment of walking from place to place, sometimes without direction, goals, destinations."

Mile High Ramblers is our Denver Metro Meetup community inside of the Walk2Connect Cooperative (http://www.walk2connect.com) and the Walk2Connect Meetup Pro (https://www.meetup.com/pro/walk2connect/) Network. Walk2Connect is a worker-owned social enterprise working to create connection-focused walking programs for people, places and commuities. All walking invitations are hosted by trained Walking Movement Leaders who have completed our bi-monthly walking leader training. The Mile High Ramblers Meetup will feature free 'same place, same time' weekly walks as well as various free/low-cost program trips. Visit the Walk2Connect Events page (http://www.walk2connect.com/events) for a full schedule of walking programs, events, and select partner activities. Its important to know that we encourage our walking leaders to reach out with flyers, word of mouth, and other forms of invitation.

Keep in mind that our meetups (especially the weekly or monthly) have more people in attendance vs what is shown on the Meetup as we have many non-Meetup attendees who sign-up through Facebook and other means.

If you want to learn more about our worker-owned cooperative, please consider watching our 2-minute whiteboard video here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ta5wWHP4RWk).

We hope you join our Mile High Ramblers community!

Walk on,

~ The Walk2Connect Cooperative
