As the unforgiving winter season comes to a close, we are very excited to announce that we will be continuing our trips! In the past few weeks, COVID-19 cases have gone down and the weather has become warmer. Following the trend of positive change, we have a few changes of our own.
First of all, we will have a new sign-up system! We are currently working on a sign-up on our official website, naturalhighways.org. Once we are finished, we will use that sign-up instead of the typical Discord method. Announcements will remain on Discord, but you can find our schedule on the website as well. Keep in mind that the trips are weather-permitting, so we will announce any changes if needed.
In addition to a new sign-up, we are very excited to announce that a Spring Biking Trip is in the works! Our Thanksgiving Book Drive, where we rode 20 miles along the beautiful C and O Canal, was a great success, and we have greater things in store! The route will likely be different, and our current goal is sometime around late May (subject to change). If you like biking and would like to explore the beauty the DMV can offer, be on the lookout for our announcement!
Like before, we will continue the biking and hiking trips. Due to the popularity of biking in our organization, we will have more biking trips. If you would like to be more involved, join our Strava Club! Strava is a platform for outdoor athletes to share their activities and be part of the great community. To join, search up "Natural Highways" in the club search and look for our logo.
And that’s it for now! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask through our website or Discord. As always, be sure to spend some time outside, and hopefully, we will see you on a trip!
