in addition to the existing meet ups, I thought I would like to start a discussion to see what the interest is in setting up a monthly hiking group. I have noticed that several people have added that as interest in their profile page.
It would be anticipated to organise this roughly on a monthly basis, because it is weather depending there would be no set weekday. Hikers will have to make sure they got their own equipment (i got some stuff to lend, like waterproof trousers or jacket).
It would be anticipated to start of with some easy hiking to break you in and build up difficulty and therefore fitness level. You would have to make your own way to the meeting points which all should be around the Mourne Mountains. However, I know that some people have their own car and are happy to offer a lift.
