What we're about
“Silent Sports” def-1: Outdoor, human-powered, aerobic-based activities such as hiking, cycling, bicycle touring, kayaking, canoeing, backpacking, running, snowshoeing, x-country skiing, …we’re flexible..enter your (silent) sport here_______ & host an event yourself..it’s easy.
“Silent Sports” def-2: Off-the-couch, heart-rate-rising, year-around outdoor fun. Let’s call it training for LIFE.
“Camping” def: A pleasant, away from home, fresh air, campfire, story, & laughter laden place to hang your hat for the night after participating in a silent sport, or two. Kayak/canoe camping, hub-spoke base camping..yes. If a local motel works better for you, that’s good too.
“Arts” def: No, not the possessive form of a guy’s name, THE ARTS..whether it’s theater, music, museums, or art shows…your head, heart, and soul need exercise too.
"Wisconsin(MKE)" def: Most events are in the Milwaukee area, though we schedule many events throughout Wisconsin or U.P. Michigan..or anywhere we have a mind to.
Now that the terms are defined, if some or all these words/activities mean something to you…if they leave you saying “..yes, more please..”, then herein, as MeetUp says, you’ll find your people. Whether you have a favorite sport, or would love to try some new ones, you needn’t be a marathon-running athlete, or century-riding cyclist, to find a home here. We “do stuff” in a non-competitive environment and how much of any event you’d like to do is your choice, though often people surprise themselves. While many, perhaps most, of our events have a get-out-and-get-yourself-moving component to them, we’re big on socializing during and after events too. Since our events often include moderate, or more, exercise, your physical health should be good to participate in our activities safely.
If you enjoy mixing with great people, and getting active outside, then you’ll find our group a fun, safe place to organize adventures, experience life, meet interesting people, and make memories. Join us!
