Annual Post-Xmas Spinc Hike
Join us for our annual January Spinc Hike! A bracing jaunt around Glendalough! Not been to a Wet and Wild event before? Wet and Wild is a sports group for all Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans-gendered individuals, and pretty much everyone else who wants to join :) This has become a treasured tradition within Wet & Wild, the Glendalough Spinc Hike is the first (and one of the best) walking events which will help us kick start 2019. New Year, New You! Get 2019 started with a good hike to work off some of those Xmas and New Year excesses! We will meet at the Glendalough Visitor Center (the first car park you come across at Glendalough, the one that is free!) at 10.15 on Saturday, 5th January and begin our hike at 10.30. The hike takes approximately 3 hours; however, we shall stop for a picnic along the way. With that in mind, a packed lunch with a flask of something warming is essential. Please bring walking shoes/boots, warm clothing and a rain jacket with you. It does get quiet exposed up there! We hope to see many of you there - both new and old(er) members! Please feel free to invite a friend along and remember to bring a camera for those epic shots! Remember, if you're driving to post in this meetup thread and carpool, as not everyone is driving. It would be very much appreciated :) If you have any questions – contact myself or Diarmuid, your friendly co-hosts for the day! • What to bring The route consists of rocky terrain, wooden sleepers and some damp ground. so bring good sturdy walking shoes/boots. It is January - so it could be very cold\damp\icy so dress appropriately, Hats, gloves and layers; a warm rain & wind proof jacket. A flask of something hot and a packed lunch.
