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.
All walks are decided at the beginning of the term. We meet on Friday mornings, once a fortnight ( alternating with the Strollers ), therefore there is a walk nearly every week.
The Striders is for the more adventurous people, especially if I'm leading it, and the walks are normally around 4 to 5 miles. We are usually out in the countryside where the ground is more uneven and sometimes hilly. So good walking boots are required and maybe a stick.
There is plenty to see and wildlife to spot, the company is great, the views spectacular, conversation interesting and exercise invigorating - with optional lunch to follow at a local pub or cafe. What more can one ask of a Friday morning.
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.
