Healthy walks and cycle rides

Free healthy walks and cycle rides

We've been organising healthy walks for more than 11 years with both regular and new people joining us weekly. Walks are great for meeting new friends, filling your lungs with fresh air and discovering new places in your local area.

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).
