Changing activities with seasons

Is there seasonal variation to your outdoor activities, or do you do the same thing year-round? I'd expect some typical winter sports/summer sports variation, but I find myself switching gears seasonally between cycling (summer) and running (winter).


Re: Changing activities with seasons

Hi @Steeple , great question! This can really vary from person to person but, like you, I find my activities changing with the seasons. I enjoy paddling in the late spring and summer months, cycling in the fall, and hiking in the winter. At REI, we change our Outdoor School and Workshop offerings to offer seasonally relevant activities such as paddling activities in the warmer months and snowshoeing and other winter activities in the cold months. We adapt our stores seasonally as well to expand and contract our product offerings to meet our customer's needs. Running and fitness are growing in popularity and you will see a lot of neat products for these activities coming out this spring. Happy Adventuring!

At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived.
