Welcome to the Recreation Program

The Ski Club's Recreation Program encompasses those outdoor activities not falling under Social, Sports, Tennis, Sailing or Skiing. It focuses on leisure and recreation on land as well as water, including hiking, biking, swimming, canoeing/rafting, and horseback riding.  We also offer Adventure Recreation Trips to various locations (see separate web page).

Biking:  Includes single day as well as weekend rides on local country roads and bike paths, and are aimed principally at the intermediate and novice riders rather than the more experienced "racers".   Currently, we are offering a Sunday ride, Lunch in Shirlington RideSee the calendar for any Sunday. 
Occasional trips of longer duration to more remote destinations may also be arranged, such as the Bike & Barge Cruise on the Rhine scheduled for July.

Hiking: Offers hikes that fall in three categories – Casual Hikes of brief duration covering distances of less than 5-miles to local destinations, and are considered easy to moderate; Adventure Hikes and Natural History day-long duration to nearby mountains, covering distances greater than 4-miles and changes of 800 ft or more; Hiking Excursions to more remote domestic or international locations, of several days duration.  For convenience of the web site visitor, hikes are separately listed, most are on Saturdays, and are of the Casual Hike type.  From time to time, Adventure and Natural History hikes are scheduled.  See the Hikes page on the main menu.
