This will be a real treat of a walk!  We will be going from Ampthill via the non-hilly route to Houghton Conquest where the pub is located. I’d like to encourage the Gentle and Gentle Plus walkers to come along also. The G and G+ walkers will start at 10am.  If you are just doing the one way of 3 miles I will need to know beforehand and will pick you up at the Knife & Cleaver at 9.45am (G's) or 10:15am (Mods) The return walk to Ampthill will have a few hilly bits.  I will be emailing the pub menu to you shortly and will need to know your choices a week prior to the walk.

Why Nordic Walking?

  • 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!
