What we're about

Come and join our walks.

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 varies between £10 and £14 depending on the distance the coach travels. We have usually between 35 and 53 members joining our coach each Sunday.

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 (http://bradfordwalking.org/2017-walks-club-events). 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 (http://bradfordwalking.org/weekends-annual-holidays-social-activities).

All our walks are led by leaders from our club.
