Nordic Walking week commencing 15th January, 2018
Our first Pop Up walk this year was well attended and great fun! A free flowing walk on flat which enabled some good speeds and of course, good nattering! Thanks to all who came along.
This time of year the countryside can be a bit muddy and slippy. My Walk Leaders and I risk assess the walks and always choose the paths we think are the safest, but we do need you to take extra care when walking this time of year; so please make sure you are wearing the correct footwear. Thanks.
LONGER WALKS FURTHER AFIELD
My walk leaders and I are putting together dates for some great walks this year so will get the dates out to you very soon. As well as some great longer local walks, the longer ones on the cards at the moment are:
The Monsal Trail, Peak District
Chatsworth Walks, Peak District
Stow on the wold, Cotswolds
Parts of the Cotswold Way
Plus all our usual Charity Challenges that we do each year! Yay!
Some fun walks to look forward too! If you have any suggestions for some good walks for us, please let me know! Thanks.
