September 18, 2019 - 6:45 PM – 8:00 PM

Hiking.  Exercise for people who hate exercise. Am I right?! 

  

Whether you enjoy urban hikes or backcountry treks, it’s important to know where you’re going, what to wear, and what supplies you’ll need to take with you. Believe it or not, there’s more to hiking than just owning a good pair of boots, and we’d love to share our knowledge with you! 

  

Join us in person, or check us out online via our Facebook LIVE event on the BCO Facebook page (www.facebook.com/BayouCityOutdoors/). Both events run simultaneously, and you can join the Q&A online or in person. 

 

If you do happen to drop in, you have the chance to win some very cool giveaways compliments of Whole Earth Provision. The giveaway will be held at the end of the presentation. Plus Karbach providing cold beverages while supplies last.

  

What topics will we cover?  

- Hiking Safety Tips 

- How to find trailheads 

- Gear essentials for every trip 

- Gear – how to save $$’s and corners you NEVER want to cut 

- Trekking poles; how to use, size and set-up for varying terrains 

- Basic exercises to get in hiking shape 

- Basic maintenance – make your gear last a lifetime 

- Trail etiquette & Leave No Trace 

- Best trails in Houston & close by 

    

Don’t forget to sign up for a chance to win the drawing.  Whole Earth likes to give aways some great gear!

Never been before??

No worries!  More than half of the people going have never been before and many people show up by themselves.  So when you show up, if everyone looks like they have known each other for years.... Don’t worry. They likely just met.  Look for the event leader and then them know it’s your first time and we’ll make sure to take care of you! :D

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Typically most BCO events are for adults.  But, we do love kids.  If you believe your child is capable of keeping up with the group, no problem.  AND if this is a bike ride they MUST wear a helmet.  Questions?  Contact us at info@bayoucityoutdoors.com 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

We add parking details to the Event descriptions.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

If the temperature is above 80 or it very clearly says "No Dogs" then please don't bring your dog.  We LOVE dogs and only make this rule if we feel there could be a safety concern (for the dogs of course:).

BIKE: If it is a bike ride: Bring a helmet or borrow one from us.  Helmets are the single most important piece of gear you can have on a bike ride.  Anyway, any time you are wearing a helmet you must be having fun!  

Bring water.  Frequently our events are in the woods or out of the way.  Water is important.

HIKE: If it is a hiking event wear comfortable shoes.  Athletic shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, just be sure your feet will be happy.

SOCIAL: If it is a social event?  Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in.  We are an eclectic mix of people with all types of interests and jobs.  People will come straight from work in a suit or jeans, straight from running or working out, and some of us even come cleaned up straight from the shower!  (and everything in between)

 

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Can I update my registration information?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes - see love & friendship above!
