When you join Lincolnshire Ramblers you are effectively ·joining 11 walking groups in the county. You have their printed programmes ·and can walk with any of them. Our printed programme booklet is produced every year and contains well over 600 walks.
Our 11 groups, from the Humber to the Wash, organise a variety of events throughout the year ranging from short ambles, day walks, midweek walks through to summer evening strolls.As a member of Lincolnshire Ramblers you can go on any of these walks. You are not limited to just one Group. Indeed, since Ramblers is a national organisation you have the right to walk with any Group in the country.
What else can we tell you about the led walks? First, the walks on offer range from less than 4 through 6, 8, 10, 12 and 15 miles in length, although not all Groups offer the full range. Walks of a given length are usually on offer at least once a month by each Group so anyone who wishes to do their usual walk every week can probably do so by walking with different Groups“ Evening strolls of about 4 miles are often on offer on different weekday evenings.Midweek day walks are on throughout the year as are weekend walks. Sunday is the most popular day for weekend walks. For the latest updates to the walks programmes members can consult the Walks Finder on the Ramblers national website. This gives Group walk information for the whole country, handy for walking weekends and holidays away. Several Groups offer coach trips with organised walks during the summer as well as Group walking holidays at home and abroad.
Most people like to walk for 10 miles or less but Lincoln Group also has monthly 15 mile 'Leg Stretchers ' which attract members from round the county. Each month some Groups also have shorter walks, typically 4 -6 miles which usually include a pub lunch . If they wish people in their 20s, 30s and 40s can join their own Ramblers Group called the Lincolnshire Walking Group where walking and social events are planned for that specific age group.
As you would expect from the Ramblers we continue to campaign for improvements in the Rights of Way network whilst promoting the enjoyment of Lincolnshire’s variety of landscapes which have so much to offer for the casual stroller or for the longer distance walker.
