We’re thrilled to introduce two new hike leaders who will be spearheading events on Tuesday mornings. These courageous folks agree to show up at a certain place at a certain time with their children! They also receive the numerous benefits of getting outside and exploring nature with like-minded people. Join a hike on a Tuesday and give these leaders a warm welcome! Here are their words:
Hi! I’m Kerrin, currently lucky enough to be a stay-at-home dad with my two energetic (!) young sons, Luca (4 ¾) and Leo (3). Ever since my parents took my brother and me hiking in the UK when we were young, I’ve always loved it. We moved with my wife, Laura, to the Bay Area in October 2017 and I have to credit her with finding this wonderful Stroller Hikes group. My boys love these “adventures” as we call them – walking, running and sometimes scooting with other pre-schoolers, occasionally “Daddy horsey” when tired, spotting animals, enjoying nature and discovering so many great, little hikes in the area. I’m really happy to have recently taken on leading around 3 hikes a month so I can help keep this fantastic group going and share their amazing repertoire of local hikes with other families.
Hi, I’m Lauren, mother to two kids. We’re originally from New Zealand but have been here 5 years. Before we had kids I enjoyed going hiking (aka tramping) in New Zealand. Now we’re here I still enjoy exploring nature with my kids and getting them exercise outdoors. I find it’s easier to go on a hike if we make it part of our schedule and if we have others to go with, which is why Stroller Hikes is a good fit for us.
