If anyone gets really really hot when out walking in the summer, I purchased these as I knew that the South Coast Mighty Hike would be a killer- they were fabulous and I'll be wearing them out on a Sunday for the rest of the summer!

A couple of people have asked me to share this - 5 BAHR ramblers are doing the South Coast Mighty Hike on 7 July to support Macmillan. We'll be hardy ramblers at the start and a bit useless at the end as it is 26 miles from Brighton Racecourse to Eastbourne, with the Seven Sisters kicking in at about 18 miles! One thing's for sure; we'll start as a team and finish as a team. If you would like to sponsor any of us, please click on the individual page for team mates who have further to…Continue

Hi all, a couple of ramblers have said that they would like to sponsor me doing the South Coast Mighty Hike for Macmillan on 10th June and asked if I could send them the link to do it. I thought I would let you know that another rambler, who is lovely, Ziggi, is also doing the walk. We won't be doing it together as we are in separate groups and she starts an hour earlier. I doubt that I will catch her knowing how fast she gets up a hill!
It's a fantastic cause and a pretty long…Continue

I have taken the decision to cancel the walk tomorrow for health and safety reasons. The stretch before lunch includes exposed areas up to the SDW that in strong winds combined with slippery mud are far from ideal. Forecast is here:
Apologies everyone- cancelling is a first for me! …

Hi fellow walkers! Chris has posted an announcement for sorting out the next programme and so far there are only 8 walk leaders that have committed to leading a walk. Given the huge amount of work he puts in to not only organising the programme but also giving people walks to lead, why don't we make this the season that we recognise the work he does by responding quickly so the gaps are filled. Every quarter he has to cajole and encourage people to lead and then do the work of sorting…Continue

Hi folks! It’s fair to say the weather has been middling to rubbish lately but I hope you can join me on Sunday for a circular 10.5 mile walk on the Downs from Patcham to Pyecombe via Chattri, Lower Standean, North Bottom and Ditchling Beacon. I walked it out Monday and there were lovely views and no bad mud (bad mud!) until after lunch. Which is my way of saying that after lunch you need to have sturdy boots and a stoic smile and be prepared that I may reroute the post lunch section if I…Continue
