WALKING!!!

I can't believe the cycling is specifically on the subject list but not walking!? I am sure there are a multitude of fellow walkers out there? I am ne here and located in South Somerset. I mostly walk the SW coast path around my f/t job and would love to hear of more of you who are doing the same anywhere?

Hi for anyone who likes a good read about walking I have just finished reading The Salt Path , by Raynor Winn , an interesting and moving read about a couple made homeless who walk the Coastal path of 650 miles to find themselves and the hurdles they overcome doing this feat .

I read the preview on the 'Salt Path' and I will definitely get a copy, especially with the prospect of long dark evenings, thankyou for the tip Lizzi

Love walking Coastal Paths, usually travel down to Cornwall, demanding walking but the scenery is stunning. Just wish the lungs and the legs were as good as twenty years ago.

Hi I live in Scotland in the countryside and the one thing that really kept me going and still is my walking , I worked part-time throughout Lockdown and still am but on my days off love to put my boots on and go for my daily walk , I lost a good friend during that time so the walking motivated me to do a challenge and did a 10km for Cancer charity , it was good to set a goal and achieve it as I had not done alot of long walks for a few years ................so now it has become part of my weekly routine , even if it is raining I will go out and walk ..........hope anyone else has found some solace in these strange times.

Good to see walking as a topic. With whats going on this year i have not trsvelled to do my walking, just my local routes in Kent. Normally i travel to Wales, the Lakes, Devon, cornwall and sometimes Norfolk. Had planned the Isle of Whight and Dartmoor this year, but that all went pear shaped

Walk 5-6 days week. I have several routes through the area - each just over 4 miles. It’s 8 AM here and I’m
heading-out now. Going to be a hot day in Southern California.
