A few days into my first and only jaunt (wintry 150 miles bothying around Kielder and chunks of Hadrian's Wall) in these fine boots I had to concede they were fractionally too big: even with two pair chunky socks and laced as tight as poss I was getting heel lift which would turn into heel rub...
Back during the first period of lockdown I got involved with a project to create a network of walking routes connecting cities & towns in the UK. Over the last nine months or so lots of volunteers have mapped potential routes from place to place electronically.
The next stage of the project is...
So for the last few weeks some bloke (ordinary looking, 20 something) has been walking past our house (small terraced street) every two or three days with loud music playing, usually around 1am to 2am but this morning it was 4am, you can hear it from a good 100 yards either side. I got to the...
I have suggested to our Local Authority that they might seek to do some sort of baseline survey of cycling and walking levels so that they can make objective measurements to see the effect of measures that they implement. Is anyone aware of where this has been done in the past, how it was done...
Not a walker, as God invented the wheel as a far better mode of transport.
Just got a reasonable pair of walking boots and been looking at some trousers.
Why is it that walkers have skinny thighs? Had to try a few pairs on to find some that would fit, and those were tight, although stretchy. I...
First thing, merry Christmas to you all, thanks for all your support over the years, especially the dark times.
Second thing, although this is a cycling forum, can anyone recommend a brand of walking boots in the £50 category. Just moved to the countryside and enjoying the walks but I'm sure...
Hello all, just interested if people can recommend a decent pair of boots for walks and hikes etc.
Don't want to spend good money and have them fall to bits!.
They will be getting a fair bit of use, paths/ grass/ gravel/ wet rocks etc.
Looking for some road cycling shoes using SPD cleats which are ok, to walk in. The pair I am currently using are not recessed into the sole so are difficult to walk in when not on the bike.
Anyone recommend any reasonably priced ones easy to walk in?
I'm planning on walking the Brecon Horseshoe soon.... Pen Y Fan etc.
I'd like to record my achievement, has anyone used a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt for walking or is it purely an ( excellent ) bike gps unit.
Do I need to change any settings if I do use it ... eg autopause ?
We're looking for a destination for a week's walking at half-term next month.
We've 'done' the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, coastal paths round Cornwall and Devon quite extensively, and while we love Scotland and the Isles, it's a bit too far of a schlep for a week (we live in Surrey). My...

As part of a number of changes I'm making, I've set-up a new forum for people with an interest in walking, scrambling, climbing, geocaching and camping:
The new site will help generate additional revenue to top up the CC pot, and as I already had the forum...
