Active Living Club

The Active Living Club promotes outdoor activities in a group setting for older adults aged 50+ and seniors.

Guest blog post: Denise Inglis, Meals on 2 Wheels delivery volunteer.

I love cycling and that’s what lured me to Meals on Wheels.  They were looking for volunteers to deliver by bike.  It’s been 4 years now and I love it! Another great thing I do on my bike is lead cycling outings with seniors.  The City of Ottawa’s Active Living Club is a program that promotes outdoor activities in a group setting for older adults aged 50+ and seniors. Activities include cycling and hiking in spring, summer and fall.  In the winter the activities switch to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.  As a facilitator in this program I discovered new outdoor recreation areas all over the Ottawa and Gatineau area I had never visited before. It’s been a great experience and if you would like to check out this fun and social group, they offer a “Try-It” week where you can come out and try the outings for free.  The next “Try-It” is during the week of January 2nd – 6th, 2017.  If you want to stay active, enjoy being with other people and would like to explore the trails, pathways, and landscape our region has to offer try the Active Living Club.
