We aim to be a comprehensive guide to either walking, hiking, cycling or camping throughout the UK, especially Gloucestershire including; The Cotswold Hills, The River Severn & The Forest Of Dean
This site aims to become an informative walking guide to the best spots of the UK, I will be starting near home in Gloucestershire, featuring the best walks in the Cotswolds and forest of dean. Periodically will be documenting walks throughout the UK, I have scheduled walks in 2014 for the following places;
Snowdonia – Including Mount Snowdon, Tryfan & The Glyders.
Cornwall – A lot of coastal footpaths during my 2 week camping holiday in September after the schools have re-opened.
Wye Valley – As part of my Forest Of Dean guide website I have decided to review all the campsites near the Wye Valley and have decided to travel by bus to Hereford and walk downstream along the river wye. This is so i can review and photograph all the campsites and other accommodation is stay at on my trip. This walk will terminate in Chepstow where the Wye meets the River Severn and I can get a bus or train back to Gloucester.
I have recently got a cheap mountain bike with the aim of improving my fitness on a daily basis, I have put on many pounds recently and very unfit due to my unhealthy lifestyle. My cycling will be mainly very close to home this year as I improve my stamina, this will include cycle rides in; The Severn Valley, The Forest Of Dean and The Cotswolds.
The cycling guide will also be contributed to by my brothers as and when they want to add something.
Brother David – He likes his off road mountain biking and travels throughout the UK finding the best off road cycling. As he always likes to moan about his bike injuries from his crashes I purchased him a HD bike cam so I can you tube his best journeys and crashes.
Brother Andy – The serious cyclist, Andy does more road miles on his bike than a lot of people do in their cars in a week. He often does 60-150 miles in a weekend. Hope he provides some good bike stories.
On our travels we all camp out, we hope to review and blog post about the camping experiences we have. We all have different expectations from camping. My personal preference is wild camping, with no luxuries, staying far away from organised camping as possible.
