Hambleton Strollers organise led walks which start from doctors' surgeries, Leisure Centres and other central points in the six main towns of Hambleton District - in Northallerton, Stokesley, Thirsk, Bedale, Easingwold and Great Ayton plus some nearby villages.
Here in Easingwold, the existing members would like to encourage anyone to join the walks, but we especially welcome these groups of people:
- The over 50s
- Those with health risks due to inactive lifestyles, and especially those at risk of heart disease
- Those recovering from health problems and needing simple exercise
- And those who would just like some company to make walking and exercise a more enjoyable social activity
Our walks are usually less than an hour and are on good level footpaths around the towns and on surrounding field paths when weather conditions allow. There may be small gradients, and the occasional stile (though always announced at the start). The walks are relaxed and friendly, but moving at a pace brisk enough for individuals to feel an increased heart rate and faster breathing. We always suggest that walkers continue to exercise more frequently as well - on their own or with friends.
Most walks start at 10.30 am. Many outings offer opportunities for refreshments afterwards. Come and join us when you are in the area.
A free pack of healthy walks route cards is now available in Easingwold or as a free download from this website. Click the image for further details
