Aims of the Ramblers Association and other useful information
We always welcome commentaries and pictures on our walks from anyone who is on the walk. Please email to Tony@schools.co.uk and please at the top of the email put as the subject line “Peterborough Ramblers Photos xxx” where xxx is the name of the walk. And of course please add your name.
Peterborough Ramblers is a group of members of the Ramblers dedicated to exploring and walking the footpaths and by-ways from Oakham in the west to Wisbech in the east, from Bourne in the north to Hemingford Gray in the south.
We actively welcome non-members on our walks – of which there are between one and three arranged each week, both on weekdays and Sundays.
But please do note that our walks on Thursdays are between 4.5 miles and 5.5 miles, while the Sunday walks are between 6 miles and 9 miles. You should ensure that you have an adequate level of fitness to tackle such a walk before joining one of our groups.
If you have not walked such distances before you will probably find it best to start with a Walking for Health Walk programme.
At present we do ask everyone who is wanting to join us on a walk to send a text message to say that you would like to join us. Simply text the leader of the walk with your name and the date of the walk that you would like to attend. The leader of each walk is shown on our Forthcoming Walks page
We do encourage non-members to take one or two walks with us to get the feel of what we do, before inviting you to join the Ramblers.
Joining the Ramblers is undertaken through the national website where you will find out much more about the activities of the Ramblers nationally.
Once you are a member of the Ramblers you will not only be able to continue walking with our group, but should you wish to, join in with any other local Ramblers group in the country.
What’s more you’ll also have access to the Ramblers vast index of walks which cover the whole country and can be downloaded so that you can plan your own afternoon out, wherever you are, and whenever you want.
On the site you can find….
