MK Nordic Striders

Nordic Walking - Logo.png (1)

If you have completed a “Learn to Nordic Walk” or other Nordic course you are welcome to join our group of MK Nordic Striders.  We walk every Saturday and the walks are about one hour.  We walk faster than a stroll but willingly accommodate different speeds within the group. The venue changes each week and this makes it possible to see and enjoy many different aspects of Milton Keynes.  Please contact us if you have any questions or use the link to check the schedule and just turn up. You are guaranteed a warm welcome!

Contact anthony.mcmanus2@btinternet.com if you would like to join or have more questions.

It contains features that were first laid out centuries ago, including ponds and a Wilderness Garden which represent the English Landscape style of garden design that became popular for country estates during the 18th Century.
