    A Walk? How Hard Can It Be?

    It has been said that a walk resembles the length of a piece of string when it comes to difficulty.
    Many members of Car Free Walks have mentioned that the difficulty system we introduced in January was slightly tilted towards the rather very sporty bunch of walkers.After much deliberation, some pints and a flapjack we decided it was time to act.  And we did.
