Isbert Dam Walk

Walking Off The Lockdown Stiffness

Both the Monday Ramblers and Thursday Explorers closed down at the start of the coronavirus lockdown in March. In September they started weekly summer walks, three-hour low-level walks starting at 0900 and ending at a suitable bar before the hottest part of the day. They were offered to both of Paul & Jan’s groups, and they got sufficient support to keep them going all month.

During lockdown Paul & Jan had decided to reorganise the two groups:
The Monday Ramblers offering shorter morning walks of 3-4 hours mostly low-level walks, with one slightly more challenging walk each month.
The Thursday Explorers would continue to offer day walks of 5-6 hours, to include the most popular hill walks in and around the Jalon Valley.

The current restrictions mean that they have to restrict each walk to a maximum of 10 persons. All walkers also have to wear face masks in built-up areas but can remove them when walking in the campo. Despite these restrictions, both groups have enjoyed the walking experience so far, and all agree that it is a real treat to be able to walk in the fresh air and forget for a few hours about the depressing “new normality”.

Because of the number restrictions Paul & Jan have introduced a booking system for both groups, with the first ten accepted for each walk, and those who are not able to walk are offered priority on the next walk.

So if you would like to explore the area in the company of a friendly group, just contact the group through their activity pages (listed below), and enjoy the chance to walk off your lockdown stiffness whilst we still have the autumn warmth during the day.
