Week beginning 8th August 2016

Nordic Walks week commencing 8th August, 2016Hi Guys,

Nice to see so many of you coming back and getting into your Nordic Walking. It really is like riding a bike! Well…apart from the wheels etc; but once you learn the technique it sticks with you! Yipee! Lovely to have some newbies joining us from the Beginners classes too. Welcome to Roseanna, Luke, Barbara, Georgina, Angela, Pauline, John D, John A, Lesley and Fiona.

Each week you’ll receive an email with the coming week’s walks (listed below). If you have any questions about what classes you should attend, Pole advice or anything else Nordic related, or not; could be about Quantum Physics if you wish (this may however be a brief conversation), just drop me an email! Yay!

All evening classes – £5
Moderate & Gentle Plus – £5 or £4 if you have your own Poles
Moderate Plus & Gentle – £5
Long Distance and Pop Up walks costs dependent on Distance.
Private Sessions: £12.50

Speed Grading Key:
1 = Moderate Plus (for the faster Nordic Walker, optional Hill running)
2 = Moderate (yet challenging)
3 = Gentle Plus (smidge slower than Moderate yet invigorating)
4 = Gentle (marginally slower than G+ class but energizing)
5 = HIT Nordic (Nothing but Hills. Tough and exhilarating!)

POP UP FRIDAY WALK – 12th August – 10am
We will be having a Pop Up Friday walk on the 12th, which will be from Cranfield to Ridgemont Railway café and back along the Bunyan Trail. There is an option for one way if needed. The route round trip is approx. 8 miles. This walk will be £6. If you are interested, just drop me an email or text. Thanks.

WOBURN TO EVERSHOLT LUNCH & RETURN – 18th August – 10:30am
This is a great walk and a favourite for many of my walkers. We will meet at the Public Car park in Woburn and walk to Eversholt via the awesome Deer Park. This is a 6 mile walk. Option for one way also, so just let me know if you’re interested in doing half or all of this walk. I will be publishing the menu for The Green Man Pub shortly so we can pick our yummy food. Suitable for Mods and G+ walkers. Walk cost – £6
Have a fab week!
