ADVENTURING: A DC-based Gay and Lesbian Outdoor Group
Enjoy the season with a refreshing hike or bike ride.

Adventuring is the outdoor club for the LGBT community in the Washington DC area. Our volunteers lead hikes year-round, and in the warmer months we do recreational bike rides too, some shorter and others longer. That's not everything though.
