Where do we walk? And how far?

We are often asked "Where do you walk, and how far?"  Well, here are the answers.

Where do we walk?

The map below shows the locations of the start points of our walks in the upcoming 2019/20 Winter Programme.  You can see most are within easy reach of the Vale of Belvoir as well as many in the Peak District (see Peak District Weekends for more details). 

Hover over or click on the red dots to see the start location and date.

And here is a map of tracks of walks covering the past 6 years.

Notes for editors.  The image above is a screen scan of a page from GPS Track Editor ( www.gpstrackeditor.com ) which has the valuable property of being able to display multiple tracks or routes on top of OpenStreetMap maps.  Tracks have been uploaded as .gpx files from GPS devices and routes have been created in OS Maps (https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/ ) and downloaded as .gpx files.  These latter OS files though often need reformatting (using, for example, gpsvisualizer at https://www.gpsvisualizer.com/convert_input ) before they can be displayed in this way.

And how far?

Our walks in the Winter are usually between 6 and 12 miles as shown below but in the Summer we also have mid-week Evening Strolls which are shorter.  This chart shows how many recent walks fit into the various distance categories.
