Healthy walks and cycle rides

Free healthy walks and cycle rides

Healthy walks, Nordic walks and cycle rides programme January to March 2018

We are pleased to announce that the Nordic walk below will take place in addition to those published in our programme:

Date/time: Thursday 22 Feb 14.00-15.15  WC  RA  Nordic walk
Route:       Around Bushy Park
Meeting:    Pheasantry Café car park, Bushy Park, TW11 0EQ
Leader:      Pam  

Please be careful!
It has rained a lot and it is very muddy out there!  Some of our walks are exceptionally muddy and slippery at the moment.  The walk leaders do their best to adapt the route to safer paths, but sometimes this is not possible.  So please do make sure that you wear sensible walking boots with good grips and if you have them why not bring along walking poles or sticks to help you.  Please stay safe and upright.

We've been organising healthy walks and cycle rides and now Nordic walks for more than 13 years with both regular and new people joining us weekly. Walks and rides are great for meeting new friends, getting outside and exploring your community.  I bet we can show you some footpaths you didn't know existed!

With 'Walking for Health', you can take part in a free short walk near you to help you get active at a pace that works for you.

Free walks of varying distance and pace lasting from 15 minutes to 3 hours take place around the Borough nearly every day.

The Elmbridge Healthy Walks are an accredited scheme running in partnership with Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support (Walking for Health)
