Reading Outdoor Group

Reading Outdoor Group is a club for members living in Berkshire, South Oxfordshire and North Hampshire.

We have around 70 members - mostly based in and near Reading. The 'Reading YHA and Outdoor Group' was first established in 1979 by a group of like minded outdoor enthusiasts interested in walking and cycling - later changing our name to 'Reading Outdoor Group' or just 'ROG' as it is affectionately known.

Our programme of events is organised by our own members - and is a varied mix of outdoor and indoor social activities - from rambles, cycle rides, weekends away, camping through to visits to theatres and local restaurants. We also have a monthly Social get-together, usually on evening of the first Monday of the month, in Reading town centre where we often had a talk / slideshow by one of our members or external speakers. The Social is also a chance to meet other members and in particular organisers of forthcoming events .

We publish our programme four times a year covering four months at a time with an overlap of one month. A sample of just some of the events from the current programme is available from the 'What's On' page on this website. Please contact us if you would like a full copy of the programme or would like to come along to a specific event.

Our members are of all ages, with an average age range of 50 to 65. We have singles and couples
