Lo que hacemos

The Carolina Berg Wanderers is a Charlotte-area club formed in the 70's by people wanting to make friends with others who enjoy outdoor activities. 'Berg Wanderer' means mountain wanderer in German, which is how the club was named by its founders. With some original members still active, and many new members, the Bergs are very active throughout the year. We invite anyone with an interest in the great outdoors to join the club. Our membership, which includes families, married couples and singles of all ages, is as varied as our choice of outings.

We camp, hike, backpack, mountain bike, road bike, sea kayak, whitewater canoe and kayak, and cross country and downhill ski. Some just enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.

Our events are primarily initiated, planned, and led by our individual members, which gives us a wide variety of activities.

If you enjoy the outdoors, whether it's hiking to a waterfall, cross country skiing in sparkling winter wonderlands or riding your mountain bike on rail-trails, and you enjoy the company of others who have a passion for these wonderful activities, you will enjoy us.

We hope you'll come and play outdoors with us!

Central City 25 mile Bike Wander: Parks, Plazas, Cemeteries, & Greenways

Freedom Park Train Parking Lot

Organizer: _MikeD__ Activity Type: _Urban Biking_ Difficulty Rating: _Easy to Moderate____ Let's explore the central city perimeter on Bikes on a Sunday. This tour will cover at least 4 to 6 each of Greenways, Parks, Plazas, Courtyards, and especially old old cemeteries. You'll see parts of Charlotte that you've never seen before, in a way that you've never experienced it. A fat tire (or hybrid) bike is recommended, since we'll be taking a few shortcuts and hopping a few curbs. Be sure your bike has air in the tires before you arrive. Bring water, warm gloves, and a spare tube. You might want your camera also. HELMETS REQUIRED. This ride will take 4 or so hours with a lunch stop at a local eatery. If you haven't been on at least one 15 mile ride sometime in the last 2 months, plan on the possibility that you might be stopping early and finding your own way back to the beginning. No children under 14 please. Meet at the Parking Lot near the Train Engine in Freedom Park. Please answer the FOUR pop up questions when you sign up. Please send any further questions to the event host. (Comments are not regularly monitored.) **************************************************** Berg Guidelines for Event Participants (http://files.meetup.com/520812/Guidelines.for.Event.Participants.htm) Berg Guidelines for Event Organizers (http://files.meetup.com/520812/Guidelines.for.Event.Organizers.htm)
