Our all-day walks, usually on weekends, offer the chance to get out of London and explore the countryside. Starting from tube or train stations, they range from hilly hikes in the Chilterns, North Downs or South Downs to gentler woodland, riverside or coastal walks. Distances vary from 8 to 15 miles. The leader’s description should give an idea of length, pace, terrain and pub or café stops. We don’t normally limit numbers on day walks, which typically attract between 10 and 20 people. We also offer occasional navigation workshops to encourage new walk leaders.  


Shorter walks in central or Greater London include evening strolls of up to five miles in spring and summer. Many explore the city's green spaces, such as Hampstead Heath, Richmond Park or Wimbledon Common, while urban walks may have a cultural or historical theme. If you haven’t walked much before, these relaxed outings may be a good place to start.


Our easy cycle rides focus on enjoying the countryside and seeking out interesting sights, rather than racing over tarmac. As well as quiet roads and lanes, we explore disused railway tracks, canal and river towpaths and other traffic-free trails suitable for road bikes. Rides start from tube or train stations and range from 20 to 35 miles, allowing time for café or pub stops and visits to landmarks such as old forts, castles and churches. Members must book onto rides as we limit group size for safety reasons. 


As a friendly group, we have an active social programme. Every month we organise an evening event in central London, usually including a picnic or barbecue in summer, visits to pubs and museums, a quiz night and a Christmas party. We also have several CLOG WhatsApp groups, which enable members to arrange other social or special-interest events. These include dining-out groups and book, theatre, film and concert clubs.
