Gay Outdoor Club
The activity club for gay men and women and their friends

Welcome to the Gay Outdoor Club


We have about 1,500 members and for 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. You can register now for a free guest account or join to gain full access to our site and events.

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.

For more specialist activities we have groups for caving, rock climbing, cycling, swimming and skiing. Some of those events are for people with experience, but we also have events for novices.

We also have an Adventure Out group for dynamic and adventurous people from across the country.
