WHAT? A new local casual/mild pace walking group (South Bay Gay Men Over 40 Walking Group) is starting soon. The walks will take place on the 1st and 3rd Thursday evening of the month from 6:45 PM - 8:30 PM, starting at Alondra Park (in Lawndale, CA).
WHO? Though our group name is the South Bay Gay Men Over 40 Walking Group, ALL men are welcome (gay, bisexual, queer, single, partnered). However you must be at least 18 years old or older in order to join our group and to attend any of our events.
Though the pace of our walk is usually casual/mild, however you “must” be in enough physical shape/condition to be able to casually walk at least 1 mile within 30 minutes. The average person with good basic physical abilities can normally walk 1 mile in about 20 minutes.
WHY? An alternative space for gay men 40 plus years old to exercise and socialize. A chance to Meet and Greet the old fashion way in person, on a regular basis, while making new friends.
WHEN? Once we get at least (4) four “interested” AND “confirmed” walking participants, we will then provide an official start date for our regular evening walks.
TO JOIN: There is a (2) two step process to join our group.
Step 1: Join our group by pressing the red “Join This Group” button on this Meetup group page.
Step 2: Send us an email request to formally join our group (our group email address is below).
Due to complaints by some of our new members not always receiving important notifications about our group via the Meetup message system here, please ALSO send us an email request to formally join our group and to learn the starting location address of our walks. If you “only” join our group via the Meetup page and do not send us an email to formally join our group, we will make no attempt to contact you with the meeting address of our walks.
We are learning being in contact via email better ensures that our members are receiving important notifications about our group vs. relying on the Meetup message system. Our meeting address location “will not” be posted on our Meetup group page, so you must email us to formally request to join our group, and the meeting address of our walks will then be provided to you. Also, if you have questions or need additional information about our group, please send us an email. Our group email is listed below. Thank you.
