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.
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.
Our 1,500 members enjoy 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.
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 trial account or join to gain full access to our site and events.

18 hungry guys arrived at the Avon Valley Railway looking forward to another of Bridget's tasty Christmas menu's.
