This BLOG is for the collaborative writers of the BikeSki group. “BikeSki” is a private outdoor exercise group associated with Hammond Hill State Forest. We have a mailing list too! If you like to hike, mountain bike (low impact cross country style trail biking), cross country ski, snowshoe or run on trails send Mike an email and get on the list and/or ask for more information. [ BLOG HOME ]
Disclaimer: These outings are just for fun and we start from our home. Please use caution. Come join us at your own risk. We are safety conscience but cannot be responsible for random acts of nature (like ice and tree branches etc!) nor can we be responsible for folks skiing, hiking, biking etc way beyond their skill level. That aside: get out and exercise and play!

COED GROUP — This is a co-ed and beginner friendly group. I have been leading outdoor outings for 10 years and have always made an effort to keep it beginner friendly with mixed ages and sexes. We always wait at each intersection and try and keep it fun. I really don’t like groups that are all boys (or all girls) … my experience as a group leader tells me mixed groups make for the most enjoyable experience for all involved. I also have lots of new folks on the list who said they want to come out, but I haven’t met them yet … so what are you waiting for? Come on out and join me for a bike ride on trails! :-)
BRING A FRIEND! — Recruiting for BikeSki: Do you like our group? Tell your friends! Bring a new person. Forward this email. Especially thinking of all the new folks in town any time of year, please forward this to a friend or a new-to-the-area person! Mike :-)
