We have about 2,000 members and for almost 40 years have been helping people to try new activities and make new friends.
GOC is a members club, run by the people who go on its events. Most events are free and you can just turn up without booking, but when you join GOC all of the money goes to run the club and none on salaries or profits.
Visitors to the website can get a good idea of our range of activities but only members can access full details of events.
On Friday 6th June 2014 the club will have been in existence for 40 years and as part of the celebration of our history we will be writing articles for publication in magazines and other media. One thing which considerably helps getting an article published is personal quotes from people and we would like your help by writing a brief quote about what GOC has meant for you....
As part of our move to gain greater awareness of GOC, we have been busy developing our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/gayoutdoorclub If you are a Facebook user then help us to promote the club by paying our page a visit and hitting "Like"
We have recently launched our new Twitter account @GayOutdoorClub1 to help spread the news about our Club and events.
If you are on twitter, follow us, give us a tweet and share the love for #GOCUK

The Gay Outdoor Club operates throughout Great Britain and provides a wide range of outdoor and indoor sports and recreational activities for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender men and women.
We organise over 500 events each year including walking, cycling, mountain biking, canoeing, caving, rock climbing, mountaineering, skiing, swimming and badminton. Most of our events are one day but we also organise weekend and longer events such as hostelling weekends, an arctic adventure and a white water rafting expedition.
GOC consists of over 30 local groups who organise regular walks, cycle rides, weekends away and social events so no-one is far from a GOC event.
We also have an Adventure Out group for dynamic and adventurous people from across the country.
