Striders pic 2

The Striders walking group is for men and women who like to stretch their legs and have a longer more strenuous walk than our Strollers Group. If you are less able and would prefer an even easier walk then try the Stragglers Group.

Our walks are held on alternate Friday Mornings and we meet at the arranged parking place at 10:15am. We manage about two hours before going for lunch. This is optional.

Some of the walks are our old favourites and we have some exciting new ones. If you would like to come along and experience the beauty of our local region you are more than welcome. Our walks are around 4-5 miles. Some ground is more rugged than others and takes us a little longer to complete the walk.

It is very important that stout footwear is worn. Proper walking boots or strong trainers that you don’t mind getting muddy. We do not walk if the weather is really bad, but always check with the leader before the walk, usually Thursday evening.

If you enjoy a walk in the country and having a chat with good company, do talk to me in the meeting or contact me for further info.
