Walk Description:

Friday Cafe Nordic Walx - this is up to 2 hours and 5 miles often followed by a coffee at a local cafe or bring your own flask for an after walk coffee and chat.

Todays walk: Ramsbury/Adbourne Circuit

Length and Grade: Today we start in Aldbourne for an adventure walk to Ramsbury. Our outward route will take us out via Marriage Hill into Ramsbury and then back via Loves Lane. We can end the walk with a coffee or lunch at the Aldbourne Post Office Cafe. I will book a garden table so please advise if you want to join us. We can update the booking on the morning before the walk starts.

The route may be muddy or overgrown so make sure you wear suitable footwear and bring sufficient water and snacks as the walk in around 7 miles.

Notes: The parking here is limited in the village - park in square or across the road and meet in square. If you can lift share then please do.

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do… twice as effective! Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking.

The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!

Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.

Note: To participate in regular Nordic WALX, you must have completed our Nordic Freedom Course.
