Are you new to walking in groups, peer pressure pushing you on to catch up;  feel "out of breath"  handling slopes ... "Grasping for air" ?  Come join our SLOW WALKIN PACE  or come train with us to walk better with using Nordic Walking skills?  We wish to be a social gathering for anyone who are always left behind in other Hiking Groups &/or have had recovering joint pains & wish to re-start hiking slowly building certain muscles.

You do not need to use hiking poles to join us.  Just do not be walking at "snail pace" as we are already walking at "Turtle pace".

Training of Nordic Walking starts with slower walking on flat paved trails without steps on Sundays. Subsequent hikes will give you skills to handle steps, unpaved paths & walking on rocks to cross streams.

Saturday Beginner Cycling trains certain muscles not used a lot for hiking & i have used cycling as a way to increase my overall stamina to hike for longer periods.

Members having attended Cycling  & at least 25 hiking & cycling events (50:50) will be invited to join our annual Cycling & Walking events to remote areas.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
