How Ramblers Benefit by Joining a Rambling Club
If you have ever been hiking or rambling or simply just gentle walking then you will know the joys that ramblers have. You will know how great it is to get outdoors, to challenge yourself to either height or distance and immerse yourself in nature. Also of course it is a great way to exercise.
However ramblers need to organise there hike. If you do this on your own you will need to work out where you want to go, what route you wish to take, where you wish to stay and who will go with you.
So why not join a Ramblers Club. There are so many benefits. When you first join a Ramblers club they usually allow you to ramble with them to ensure you are happy with the club before joining. It does not matter how fit you are or what pace you need to take. A Ramblers Club will take this into account. You will also be with like minded people who love the great outdoors. Rambler Clubs are usually well organised, will have a list of great routes and do most of the organisation.
Looking at the favourite search engines there are many clubs that ramblers use which are very localised to each area. Some Rambling Clubs consist of just a handful of members whilst others are greater in number and who meet regularly for walks, talks and socialising.
The way that clubs are organised is that they have different grades of hikes or walks. It is up to the individual which walk they wish to join. The decision will depend on your level of fitness compared to the difficulty and length of the hike.
Of course you can be a rambler on your own and many people enjoy hiking in their own groups. After all hiking can be enjoyed however it is organised. However if you do not have a like minded group of friends and want to join other Ramblers then a Rambling Club could be a great way to enjoy this excellent pastime.
I enjoy Hiking and Rambling with Ramblers and also writing a Hiking and Rambling blog which I fully populate with videos and articles on a daily basis.
