Programme

Bedford Rambling Club 

Programme of walks and events.

We are currently holding organised group club walks.

Covid-secure Club Group walks are classified by the UK government as ‘organised physical activities’ and can take place in any number. We are asking walkers to take note of any Covid precautions being recommended by the Government guidelines at the time. We may also put in place any additional measures we feel appropriate for your safety.

Please do not attend any club events if you are feeling unwell, have any Covid symptoms, have tested positive or should be self isolating. Please be sure to let us know if you test Covid positive shortly after a walk.

Walking for the pleasure and enjoyment of the countryside.

Our walks are normally circular & start at 10.00 am. Monday walks are normally about 2 hours 4-5 miles. Sunday walks are a bit longer at 5-6 miles. 

Well behaved dogs, on a short lead are welcome, unless stated otherwise in the walk description.

Please revisit this page regularly to check for updates or revisions.

If you would like to offer to lead a walk please contact Sue at SueCs2253@gmail.com
