Following the announcement by the Welsh Government on 19th October, there will be no Striders1 Walks until November 9th, when hopefully they will resume, depending on what the new rules are then.

In the current Covid-19 situation, please make yourself aware of the Risk Assessment Walking

Following Covid-19 guidelines, we do not meet at Chepstow Leisure Centre to share cars.

These links give general information on Striders1 walks: What Striders1 do , Where we meet and what to bring

Striders1 make full use of Chepstow's superb location. The Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons, Wye Valley, Monmouthshire & Gloucestershire are our usual walking areas.

Striders1 walks are between 8 and 10 miles with generally significant climbs.
