Casual Striders

A walking group that meets on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Fridays (where this occurs) each month. Walks start at 9.30am in Daltongate, Ulverston.

The group has a total of 40 members with currently 33 active members with a regular turnout of between 12 and 20 (exceptionally up to 26). The range of walks is easy to moderate difficulty and up to about 6 miles in length. The accent is on appreciating the landscape and the walking pace is commensurate with this.

Walks take place on the 1st and 3rd Fridays (and 5th where this occurs) of each month, although our summer programme often has walks on other Fridays. We have had a number of successful years with enjoyable and informative walks. The group consists of a good mix of both seasoned and relatively novice walkers and is well seeded with Natural Historians, Industrial Historians and Ornithologist, hence the informative nature. The walks follow a regular pattern with an habitual (almost mandatory) wayside coffee stop after the fist hour or so, a picnic lunch (normally with a view) at around mid-day and end at a mutually agreed venue for post-walk refreshments and chat. Individual members are encouraged to try planning and leading a walk with advice as necessary. Car sharing is another feature for both environmental and parking reasons.

Walk programmes are arranged by meetings of members over coffee and cover periods of three to four months. During the last two years traditions have grown and have become regular features, for instance an Easter walk with rolling of decorated pasche eggs and a Spring planning meeting which includes a slide show of photographs from the preceding year walks.
