Walking in Bournemouth and beyond
Welcome to the Bournemouth Happy Monday Ramblers. We are primarily a social group, and our walks end with an optional lunch at a local pub or café.
Our walks start Monday 10:00 within one hour's drive of Bournemouth - so mostly East Dorset and the New Forest. Walks are typically from 4 to 8 miles, with occasional day walks.
The pace is moderate with brief stops as needed. Weather permitting, we take a ten minute snack break half way round.
The distance and level of difficulty vary with the route and will be indicated in the route description.
You are welcome to three free "taster" walks before you join.
We have two WhatsApp groups: one which solely carries details for the walk each week; one which is for social interaction, say, to recommend a film, book, or event.

This is a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. It's a typical burn of 650 calories - though you may put some back on at lunch!
