Our Walks Programme
Oxfordshire Ramblers aim to maintain a varied walks programme, both in distance and pace, to meet the needs of its approximately 2000 members. The walks range in distance from 3-miles, with no hills or stiles, to longer-distance walks covering distances of, typically, up to 16 miles. The walks also vary in pace, with walks graded ‘Easy’, ‘Leisurely’, ‘Moderate’ or ‘Strenuous’. We aim to have a programme that has something for everyone.
Oxfordshire Area has eight groups which cover different regions of the County; Bicester & Kidlington, Banbury & North Oxfordshire, Didcot & Wallingford, Henley & Goring, Oxford, Thame & Wheatley, Vale of White Horse, and West Oxfordshire. These groups contribute walks to a 6-month programme which is published in booklet form and distributed to members. A 6-month programme typically has approximately 450 walks covering a total distance of over 3000 miles. Members are encouraged to walk with all of the Oxfordshire groups, not just the walks provided by their own group.
A listing of the walks can be found following the ‘Walks Programme’ link under the ‘Walking’ item on the ‘home’ page. Clicking on any particular walk gives further detailed information. Alternatively you can follow the link to ‘Walks finder’ which gives further options of looking for walks nearby. Amendments to walks are updated in the on-line version.
We have two further groups who present their walks on Walks Finder and on their own websites: Oxon 20s & 30s Walkers www.oxon2030walkers.org and Oxon Weekend Walkers www.oxonww.org, both of whom cover all of Oxfordshire for their demographics.
