Company Name: Lyme Bay Nordic Walking

About me:

I started Nordic Walking about 6 years ago with Lyme Bay Nordic Walking; when the previous instructor, Gillian Butcher moved away, Juliet Evans took over and then asked me to join her.

I have a love of the outdoors, have taught and led groups at a field study centre in France; I am a qualified Beach School Practitioner and have completed long walk challenges – the Moonwalk Marathon in London (twice) and the Jurassic Challenge in 2020 (100km in 24 hours). I enjoy exploring our local area with Merlot, my dog and discovering new routes for our walkers.

What’s on Offer?

We offer a range of walks:

Fresh Air Friday - This is a slower paced walk of 2 to 2.5 miles. A good start for those people returning to walking, or for walkers seeking a shorter route at a slower pace


Nordic Walk - This walk is up to 3 miles. It will follow an undulating route but nothing too challenging in terms of terrain.  Suitable for those looking to improve their fitness post illness/injury and for walkers seeking a shorter route.


Nordic Stride - This walk is between 5 and 6 miles. It will follow an undulating route with possibly some challenging hills. Suitable for those who enjoy a steady pace.


Event – This walk is usually 4+ hours in duration and will generally involve lunch or another activity.
