Elmbridge Borough Council

Healthy Walks and Cycle Rides

We love our walks and rides and we hope you will too. We’ve been organising them since 2003 and they are great for meeting new friends and discovering new places in your local area.
With Walking for Health, you can take part in a free short walk to help you get and stay active at a pace that works for you.

To start with, consider our Very Slow Walks: up to 45 minutes

Walking for 15 minutes to half an hour may be longer than you’ve walked for a while but we’ll be there to help you. Walk at a pace that’s right for you and take time to soak up the beauty of Elmbridge. Doesn’t that sound achievable?

If you are not sure you will be able to keep up please start with our Monday or Friday regular very slow walks, ask the leader if they think you would keep up on a slow walk.

Walks and rides leave promptly at the published time, please don’t hold the group up, it’s not fun for you or the other walkers. We pride ourselves on our punctuality, we know that you lead busy lives with appointments to keep.

Please arrive a minimum of 5 minutes beforehand. All our walks are free and most are between 30 and 90 minutes long
and less than three miles in length.

Christmans 2017 Walk
Volunteers: If you enjoy going on slow walks, 30-90 minutes long, and want to help improve other peoples lives, you sound like you would make a perfect volunteer leader. We’ll give you all the training and support you need to help you be top notch.

If you are a new walker or cyclist, please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start to allow time to complete the outdoor health questionnaire (OHQ). Why not complete your OHQ at home and bring it along? You can find it at: Walkingforhealth.org.uk

Questions? email health@elmbridge.gov.uk or telephone 01372 474574. We are here to help.

Walks/rides are classified by pace, gradient and length of time they take. Make sure you fully enjoy the walk by choosing carefully. We often stop for coffee afterwards, to gather strength for the journey home!

If you prefer longer, faster walks, or walks out of the Borough, you may enjoy walking with Ramblers, Go50 or Surrey Walks Club.

Short – If you are not a confident walker or are returning to walking. Normally between 15 and 30 minutes, always on easy terrain, at a pace to suit you.

Postcodes – Beware of postcodes, they are the best that we can find, but don’t always take you to the precise starting point.

Car parks rarely have their own postcode. Please allow plenty of time to find the start point. We suggest you look up your route and destination on a map prior to setting out and take a map with you.

Poor weather – In case of adverse weather conditions, visit elmbridge.gov.uk/healthywalks to see if an event is cancelled. If in doubt call 01372 474574 or email health@elmbridge.gov.uk
