Walks may be cancelled or cut short if the weather is really bad.

Striders walks are often exploratory in nature, intended to discover the state of our footpath network and to ensure paths are kept open. These typically involve some difficult terrain and overgrown stiles and may require diversions or retracing of steps if we cannot find the path, so lengths and times are approximate.
