New Walkers

If you are a new walker with the group, please wear suitable clothing and footwear for the weather and the area in which you will be walking; if in doubt, contact the leader for advice. We want you to enjoy walking with us and you would do well to be comfortable while doing so. Bring a drink, especially in warmer weather, and some food, as we usually have a short ‘apple’ stop and, on longer walks, a ‘picnic lunch’ where stated.


Fitness and Walk Grades

Waveney Ramblers leads walks at a moderate and brisk pace.
If we get volunteers, we'd like to lead slower and perhaps even faster walks.

Wednesday Shorter Walks - Moderate
A typical walk is five miles and takes about two hours. That's 2.5 mph overall average and 2.8 mph while on the move. The group stops for a brief snack about half-way round the walk. Covid permitting, some of the Wednesday walkers have a pub lunch after the walk.

Sundays and Longer Walks - Brisk
A typical walk is ten miles. Our moving average pace is 3 mph, sometimes a bit more on easy terrain. The walk is completed in under four hours. We have a picnic lunch, rushed if it's cold and wet, more leisurely in fine summer weather.


Leisurely, Speedy and Doggy Volunteers Needed

There are always people who would like to go slower or faster. We'd love to increase our range and variety of walks but we rely on volunteers. If you are speedy or leisurely, please consider leading a walk. We have twelve "Rural Rambles" PDF booklets describing walks in our region. Following one of these should be easier than planning one from scratch. Dog friendly walks would be welcome if we get volunteers to lead these. We had "Prambles" but the toddlers grew up.
