What we're about

We are New York's number one group for hiking, skiing, biking, snowboarding, and more. We have no cliquey events where only the regulars always get chosen, and every event starts with carpool so nobody is left behind. We are the most inclusive group in NYC for hiking, skiing, biking, snowboarding, and other outdoor adventures.

Our group is about the democratization of the outdoors, so you can be the adventure spark ( https://www.ridj-it.com/adventurespark ) without having to go through layers of the usual Meetup hierarchy.

Do you want to get out and go skiing but don’t have a ride? We’ve got your back. Have you been dreaming about surfing but can’t make it out to California? We know a secret spot to paddle out, and its way closer than you think. Ridj-it has helped bring thousands of people from the creature comforts of the city out to adventures of a lifetime all around the Northeast. Pick one of our trips or design your own; we’ll sort out the details. Your ride is outside. What are you waiting for?

Ridj-it has taken over 2,000 cars off the road, and through connecting those without cars with those who have one, we've helped adventurers host over 500+ events.

Drivers and riders can post adventures from various station throughout the Tri-state area. Our events include people from Meetup, Facebook, and others, so we're more than your typical NYC Meetup group.

Why do we carpool? ( https://www.ridj-it.com/single-post/2018/02/18/Why-Carpool ) We found most other outdoor Meetups were leaving younger residents, people of color, and immigrants behind. By linking our trips to carpool, we make sure everyone has to work together as a team in order to go on events. Many of our hosts don't have cars, and we're proud to have a space where outdoor enthusiasts can slowly democratize access to the Northeast's beautiful mountains, rivers, and beaches.
