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. Plus, we’ll have refreshments provided by Karbach Brewing Co. and other snacks. The giveaway will be held at the end of the presentation.
Each week we take a topic, drill down as quick & deep as we can, to get you up to speed and out playing. We’ll take Q&A after the presentation to help guide everyone into outdoor summer fun mastery.
What topics will we cover?
Topics we’ll cover as many of these as we can plus a Q&A at the end for your questions:
- 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
Join us and you'll also be able to download the free “#10Essentials for Hiking” that evening!
It’s the comprehensive tip sheet for boots, gear, training, trails, safety and what to avoid.
