Latest Walks - Week Starting 30th May 2016



This year our Summer Social will be on Saturday 2nd July at 11am at The Hub.

We will walk beforehand and then assemble at The Hub for some YUMMY FOOD and good company.

Our socials are for all our Nordic Walkers and family/friends. There will be a £1 charge for walkers to help with costs (family and friends come for free).

We will have sandwiches, nibbles, of course cake, and fruit. I will make sure we have some gluten free/dairy free stuff too!

Forthcoming Nordic Walking Challenges



10 miles - £8

This walk will begin at 11:30am and will be leaving from Woburn public car park in Woburn, which is opposite the Church.

This walk is one of the finest in Bedfordshire with sweeping views, lovely wild animals and amazing trees and massive rhododendrons.

Please bring a snack as we will be stopping for a break of 20mins. In Eversholt we'll grab a swift half in The Green Man (optional) for about 10mins.

If you feel 10 miles is too long, you can do 7 miles also, but you will need to let me know by Friday for this option.



Barton-le-Clay 10am

3 miles - £5 (2)

This week we have a POP UP walk!

It will be at Barton Springs, Barton Le Clay. We'll meet on Old Road by the main Park gates.  Another fab location with stunning views.  We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful county.

Why Nordic Walking?

Nordic Walking was originally developed in Finland.

It was designed to help cross-country skiers practice in the summer.

Now it's a total-body  version of walking that non-atheletes can enjoy and physically benefit from.

However, in order to get the most from nordic walking, you need to be taught the proper technique.

  • Nordic Walking uses 90% of the skeletal muscles
  • Burns up to 46% more calories than normal walking
  • Poles propel you along, making it easier to move faster without feeling the strain
  • Tones the upper and lower body simultaneously
  • And...IT'S GREAT FUN!
