North Bedfordshire Ramblers

Spring Walking Programme 2017

Saturdays February 4th to May 27th


Meeting times



Please note North Beds group start times are 13.00 in the Autumn/Winter (after clocks go back) and 13.30pm beginning of March to end of October. Some walks in London or elsewhere may have a special starting time. These will be on the programme but if in doubt ask the leader.




Please make sure that you are fit to undertake the walks. Always wear suitable footwear and clothing. We always have a break so please take refreshments. Our walks are generally between 5 - 7 miles, longer walks (if known) are shown in the programme.


The group voted at our AGM and the committee has agreed that, because of problems in the past, dogs are not allowed on our walks.
