Lets Go With....

The Walk, Cycle, Ride and Spaces & Places pages give much information for you to explore the Bedfordshire countryside. Sometimes however, you may wish to explore the countryside in the company of others and be guided on a walk or ride. This section gives information on walks you can join.

There are several walking groups in Bedfordshire who organise regular walks that you would be welcome to join. Some of these are listed below. Most groups have a membership charge but let you go along once or twice before you have to join the group. Why not give it a try?

If you would like your Bedfordshire walking group added to the list above could you please contact letsgo@marstonvale.org with your details and preferably a photograph.
