We meet fortnightly on Thursdays (first, third and fifth in the month) and motor together to the start. Morning walks are “Long” (around 5 miles) and “Strollers” (up to 3 miles) and are generally non-aggressive; you may have noticed that Cheshire does not specialise in hills. Although in the summer months we do venture further out into the Peak District and the Welsh Marches.
The leader will have recce’d the walk to ascertain its viability and whether the pub is up to scratch. One prominent leader is renowned for having arranged a circular walk which he guaranteed was downhill all the way!
Wives, girlfriends and guests are all welcome.
Walks are Fun!
Walking is an ideal exercise for those in retirement. When you combine this with all the chattering and socialising that goes on, even the weather cannot dampen the enjoyment.
There is, of course, one beneficial side effect; you may accidentally get a bit fitter.
