Information about the organising Group
(LE02) Leicester Group
Leicester Group organises a variety of walks: 5 - 6½ mile walks every Tuesday and Thursday mornings (with optional pub lunch), a 10 mile walk on occasional Thursday mornings, 2½ - 4 mile leisurely stile-free strolls on some Thursday mornings, 4-5 mile walks every Tuesday evening May - Aug, 10-13 mile all day walks every Sunday except the third Sunday in the month, 12 - 21 mile walks every Saturday and a 7-9 mile all-day walk once a month on a Sunday..
On the third Sunday in each month we hire a coach and go further afield to attractive areas of the country. On these we offer three guided walks of about 8.5 miles, 10 miles and 12 miles, or if you wish you can join us on the coach and just do your own thing when you get to the venue. At the end of the day we have an (optional) meal in a pub before returning home.
Dogs are not permitted on any of our walks.
Children accompanied by a parent or guardian are welcome on the Saturday afternoon leisurely rambles (once a month in the Summer), the evening walks (May - Aug), and the Thursday morning and Tuesday morning walks (in school holidays!). Most full day walks usually have a lunch stop at a pub, and are not really suitable for young children, but accompanied older children are welcome.
All walks are open to the public, though you would be expected to join the Ramblers after taking part in three. If you are new to the Ramblers, you will be welcomed on any of our walks; the coach rambles in particular are a good day out with a choice of walks, a lunch stop and an evening meal before we return home, and provide an excellent introduction to the camaraderie of our Group.
For most walks you can just turn up, but you would need to book a place on the coach for coach rambles. Please do not hesitate to get in touch on 0116 2887457 for full information on any of our walks, or if you have any queries.
Walks highlighted with the Get Walking Week logo are free and open to all. They're run by Ramblers Groups and projects and Walking for Health schemes to help everyone discover the joys and benefits of walking.
Other walks listed here are intended primarily for Ramblers members. Non-members are welcome to join us on two or three walks, though if you walk with a group regularly you'll be expected to join the Ramblers.
For all walks listed here, please make sure that you're fit enough to undertake the walk you intend to join. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short and easy walk first. It's much better to find a walk a little too slow or easy than to exhaust yourself.
Some walks are off-road in rural areas. Please have suitable footwear and clothing for the walk you intend to join and bring some food and drink - even if the walk includes a pub or café break.
Walk leaders may refuse to accept participants who in their opinion are inadequately equipped or unfit. When in doubt, contact the organiser or leader in advance. For the safety of yourself and others please follow any advice and guidelines issued by the organiser and the instructions of the leader. Although walking is a very low risk activity, no activity is completely without risk and it is your responsibility to behave sensibly and to minimise the potential for accidents.
