EQUIPMENT FOR RAMBLERS


Like all outdoor activities, you need to be prepared for changeable weather and dress according to the conditions.


We suggest wearing sturdy walking boots. Appropriate Rambling Clothing, also advise that you consider walking poles as a safety accessory.


All walkers should have sufficient suitable fluids and food to sustain them for the walk. And the means to carry it and any other appropriate equipment safely.

Back to Country Walks

Description: .


The Group’s coordinator or Walk Leader will e-mail all members of their Group 10-14 days prior to the walk taking place, advising members of the starting point, time, type of walk and area that we shall be covering. The coordinator may lead the walk, but we try to encourage all our group’s members to organise and lead a walk, which gives more variety in the type of walk.


Group Aims :Walks of up to 10 miles, with the  likelihood of multiple Stiles, using footpaths, tracks and farmland.  The intention is to achieve an average walking pace of 2.5MPH or more as walks progress.    

1) To improve Cardiovascular, 2) To improve endurance.


Group Education Objectives:

All/or Parts of the walks will not have been walked by the group before and therefore :




We would stress that it is desirable that prospective ramblers have prior experience of this kind of walk.


If you enjoy a good walk and a chat do come and try us.

RAMBLING SAFELY


Please note all walkers with rambles-plus are responsible for there own safety.

 

Walks in the Rambles-Plus are unlikely to have been checked out prior to the  commencement of the walk.  This means that walk route may need to be changed during the walk possibly causing an extension or shortening of the walk.
