What we're about

Crowd & Country is a new group designed to encourage more people of Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds to explore rural Britain.

I love the outdoors and exploring different places. As a black guy cycling, running or hiking around most parts of the country with my white friends - its disappointing not to see more people of BAME backgrounds better represented – so I decided to create a group to get more of us out there!

These links got me all inspired too:

Crowd & Country isn’t just for people of BAME backgrounds – it’s open to people of all shades who are sensitive to the issues above and keen to get out and explore the UK countryside in more diverse groups!

Its relaxed and chilled.

Format will be a few hours of walking (in or around London) and ending up in a pub for a few beers!

If it sounds like your bag, sign up and stay tuned to hear about upcoming trips.
