Nordic Walking week commencing 22nd May, 2017

Hi Nordic Walkers

A big Well Done to all of the walkers who took part in the Parkinson’s UK Charity walk this morning.  It was a lovely morning and great to walk and talk our way around the Country Park in Marston Vale.

This next week it looks like we have some good weather on our side so no excuses not to get out on the trails.  We have the 1st stage of the Greensand Ridge walk starting on Saturday so if you do wish to take part, please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks.

For good deals on Nordic Walking Poles go to https://nordicwalking.co.uk/products/39/  Let me know if you need any help or advice choosing the right pole for you.

GREENSAND RIDGE – 1st Stage – Leighton Buzzard to Woburn (8.5 miles) – £8
We will meet at Woburn Public Car Park at 11:30am where you will leave your cars.  We will then car pool to the start of the walk in Leighton Buzzard (15 minute drive).  This walk is relatively easy with no major hills  We begin walking along the canal alongside the River Ouze before crossing meadows and then into Rushmere Country Park. Here we can use the facilities and have a look at the Heron’s nesting from a wonderful look out terrace (bring your binoculars!). The walk should take about 3.5/4 hours with stops for drinks etc.  Please bring snacks/picnic. Arriving in Woburn we can pile into Flootes café for a well deserved cuppa!
