Leicester & District Ramblers – Walk Descriptions

Our Walk Descriptions

Saturday Morning

These moderate (5 – 6.5 miles) walks occur regularly. They are circular and start at 10am prompt from the location listed in the calendar. If you would like to go you will need to contact Mike Gale (0116 224 0949), email: mikegale@live.co.uk for confirmation.


Saturday All Day

Saturday walks meet, for purposes of car sharing, at Grafton Place, Burleys Way, opposite St. Margarets Bus Station. See calendar for meeting time and place. A car sharing system will be reinstated when feasible given the current circumstances.

Note: Saturday walks tend to be longer and faster than others, intended for the fitter, more experienced walker, or those wishing to improve their level of fitness. The walk may not have been pre-walked, so distance shown is approximate.


Sunday Coach Rambles

We are hoping to recommence later in the year when things are more settled. We are reviewing the format of the walks to ensure that they offer a variety of walks suitable for walkers of different abilities from a gentle stroll to a good day's hike. Watch this space!
