What we're about
You are very welcome to join our group, and we are now able to an increased programme of walks on Saturdays and Sundays. Our Sunday coach programme is currently operating on a fortnightly basis.
See below for details of our normal programme and please look through our calendar to see the walks we have been running during the past few years.
We are an established group based around Bradford and the Aire Valley areas and we offer an interesting programme of walks with something for everyone ranging from gentle strolls to challenging mountain walks with some scrambling.
On most Sundays we run a 53 seater coach collecting members at various points between Bradford and Keighley and travel to many different areas and offer 2 to 3 levels of walking ( A (harder), B (moderate) and C (Easier)) . The coach enables us to create interesting linear walks. There is a charge for the coach journey which currently is fixed at £14 per journey.. We usually have between 35 and 53 members joining our coach each Sunday. Payment of the the coach fare can be made at the time of booking a place on one of our walks. The fee is paid using paypal or credit card. You will need to be a member of meetup and of our meetup group (no fee for this) to access the Sunday coach walks.
Our Saturday Public Transport rambles are between 6 and 10 miles and details of these can be found on our other website www.bradfordwalking.org. You can download details of our events and the Saturday walks are also listed on the events page. We also offer occasional weekends where the group travel to an area for walking and an annual holiday. See details on our Weekends/ annual holidays page.
All our walks are led by leaders from our club.
Please also see our Sunday Coach Info and Sunday coach - routes & pickup points on the additional pages of this website. We have information about the equipment you should bring and safety on our meetup pages. You can also download maps and information about all our coach pickup points.
We welcome new members to our club. You are very welcome to join the walks we post on Meetup. Just click on a walk listing to find out all the details about the walk and RSVP to indicate that you are planning to attend and if this is a Sunday coach walk, you will also need to pay the coach fare. If new to our group please send a message to me or the walk leader through Meetup and let us know if you need any additional information. You are also welcome to contact us by telephone - please see Contacts.
You are welcome to try us out before becoming a full member of Bradford CHA. You can come to 2 or 3 walks as a taster before joining the club. See Membership for information and you can download a membership application form from our main website - Membership - which also gives details of our membership fees. We do not currently charge a Meetup Fee, so the only charges are our normal annual membership fee (£11 per person or £18 per couple annually) and the coach fee if you come out on a Sunday.
Please note we have a club policy of no dogs on walks.
