Upcoming Events - Real outdoor events!

Outdoor events restart on 29th March subject to the Rule of 6!

Ready to become a CLOG member and come on our walks and cycle rides? 

Annual subs (£15 for the year)

Interested in joining but not ready to join? We have a Facebook Group for people interested in CLOG but not yet members. This has information on walks and cycle rides but you can't book a place on events without becoming a CLOG member.

As well as our many socially distanced REAL outdoor events (walks, cycle rides etc), members still have our regular favourites:

Film  club (discussions on Zoom now monthly on Friday evening)

Scavenger Hunt on your tod now monthly.  This only requires Whatsapp and a smartphone with a camera (no need for Zoom) and is glorious fun! A great way of discovering your local area.

Swimming at the Oasis (outdoor pool) in groups of 6 (outside lockdown periods)

We occasionally have ad hoc virtual museum and gallery tours and quizzes.

Upcoming events regularly updated - many put on at very short notice - keep visiting regularly. A monthly view can be found on the Events Calendar.  

*Anyone taking part should consider the personal risks involved and follow government rules and advice at all times.

Socially distanced outdoor recreation restarts on 29th March!

What is currently planned and more provisional events are likely to be added to the list so keep coming back to check.  Obviously we will comply with government guidance on social distancing etc


 Essex and Herts Cycle Rides

For this set of 4 rides, there will be priority early booking for anyone who has joined CLOG in the last 12 months.


Beginners half day cycle ride: Shenfield to Harold Wood. Lovely quiet Essex woods and lanes and a country park with a huge herd of wild deer. This ride is aimed at people  interested in doing easy day rides (see below) but not sure about mileage or keeping up with a group.


Easy day ride: Shenfield to Harlow Mill Quet Essex woods and lanes, wide skies and old churches


Easy day ride: Sawbridge to Ware: Quiet Herts lanes and rivers

Easy day ride: Ingatestone to Harold wood: Lovely quiet Essex woods and lanes and a country park with a huge herd of wild deer 

Other Cycle Rides 


      To be added. 





Some priority may be given to people who did not get a chance to go on one of this leader's walks last year.

Tentative plans include:
  • The Can-Can (or Canterbury Canter) - the first stage of a long-distance walk from Rochester to Ramsgate
  • In the Footsteps of Medieval Knights - the first of a series of 10-15 mile walks around Tonbridge in Kent.
  • Great Expectations - a day walk on the North Kent marshes
  • The Hoo Peninsula - a day walk on the Hoo Peninsula
  • Isle of Harty - a day walk on the Isle of Sheppey
  • Broadwater Warren - a day walk around the sandstone rocks of The Weald
  • Rewilding Rewind - a day walk around Wadhurst Park
  • Canterbury Bridges - in a town with a number of islands and 36 bridges connecting them, a fascinating problem is to find a way of crossing each bridge once without ever crossing the same one twice
  • The Great Plague - a day walk in post-pandemic London
  • Art Deco - an evening walk in London
  • Tale of Two Cities - an evening walk in London
