Where we go walking

Walks, hikes, rambles - we normally have at least three every week. Many are longer walks ranging from 8 to 16 miles but we also ocassionally have shorter afternoon or evening walks.  Some day walks are in the countryside surrounding London but many others are further out in areas such as the North and South Downs, Chilterns, Sussex and Kent coasts.  

We normally use public transport to access the start and of walks as this makes it easy to organise and get to from any part of London.  

Many of our trips away are based around walks - walking weekends or longer to the Lake District, Scottish and Welsh mountains, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District and coastal and moorland areas.  We usually have several walking trips abroad to places such as the Dolomites and alps or in winter to the Canary Islands and Maderia

Check out our events calendar, choose a walk, cycle ride or other type of event and come along and find out what you've been missing.  Photos of various various walks, cycle rides and trips away.

Upcoming Trips Away

This October have two trips away:

Lake District
A trip to the most mountainous part of England with lots of walking options based in Keswick.  Keswick is a super base for walking on the Lake District fells and along the pretty valleys and is a hub for the north lakes buses, and therefore excellent base for linear walks using the bus network.  There are lots of interesting ridge and valley routes from Buttermere back to Keswick, walks along the Borrowdale valley, and around the Derwent Lake.  Blencathra(868 meters), Hellvelyn(950 meters) and Skiddaw (931 meters), some of the highest mountains in England, are easily accessible.Some of the walks can be very strenuous, but within the capability of those regularly walking 10+ miles at weekends.

Great walking and cycling in the Essex/Suffolk area including the Essex Way, Dedham Vale, Constable landscapes, walks along the Stour and Orwell

If you are thinking of joining CLOG, why not come along to our pub social for Current new and prospective members on Wednesday 11th October.

Photos from recent trips away

We've had trips away to 7 different places in the last 2 months:  Eastbourne 80th anniversary weekend in Eastbourne (including walking the Seven Sisters and South Downs), walking in the Dolomites, cycling in Holland, walking in Exmoor, cycling in Denmark, sea kayaking, walking and cycling near Chichester, walking in Devon.

And here are the relevant photo albums for these trips (other than Eastbourne which is too recent to have a photo album yet).  If you wave your cursor over each one, you will see arrows that allow you to scroll through all the photos in the relevant album.
