“This is the real secret to life — to be completely engaged in what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”
Recess guides are hard workers and happy campers. We love riding bikes. We are among many in DC committed to improving the local landscape for bicycles and simply making everyday life a breath of fresh air. We see the city as a giant playground and can’t wait to get outside with adults and kids who agree.
Kate Gallery, Owner: Kate founded Recess Outings in 2015. Her favorite job prior was leading summer wilderness trips for high school students in Canada, France and Spain for an organization called Adventures Cross Country and she has since remained involved in outdoor education programs while working in independent schools in California, Maryland and DC. Her first big bike trip was a five-day ride from Fairbanks to Anchorage, Alaska in 2001, for which she prepared by doing laps around Central Park.
