We meet most Sunday mornings, usually at the crack of dawn outside the The Turners (New Con Club, Turners Arms). We spend several weekends a year in such places as the Lake District, Wales and the Yorkshire Dales. Each year we also take a foreign trip, the Costa Del Sol being a popular destination.

Meetings every Tuesday in the The Turners, Ingersley Road, Bollington, from 8.30pm. The group organise trips to the UK and Europe. Local rideouts if it ever stops raining. Trackday events. Annual end of season and new season party nights. No membership fees, no committees, no agendas, just good uncomplicated friendship and biking fun.

Regular walks are organised by the Bridgend Centre. There is a small charge for joining these walks. See their web page for full details.

‘Walks for Health’ are short guided walks in Bollington and surrounding areas. Suitable for those who want a gentle walk and an opportunity to meet others. These are organised for the summer months and often take place in the lighter evenings.

The Wednesday walks are very popular. They vary in difficulty and length each week and so they have a ratings system to provide information on the difficulty of each one. Check the web site for the programme and details of the difficulty rating. They all meet at the Centre at 10am for 10:15am departure.

There are longer walks twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, usually meet at the Centre at 10am for 10:15am departure. These Saturday walks are usually 8-12 miles in length, typically a bit shorter in winter.

Walking Festival

Bollington organises a very popular Walking Festival each year in the last week or so of September, with walks to suit all standards, from short on the level stroles, to 10+ miles day long hikes over the hills.

Bollington Harriers

Contact: via email

The Harriers club has been re-established in 2017 as a result of our very active Town Mayor, Cllr Andy Langdon. For decades through the late 19th and early 20th centuries Bollington had a very active and successful Harriers club, and interest has escalated once again following re-newed interest in long distance and hill running. Andy has been especially committed by trekking up Kerridge hill to White Nancy 203 times during his Mayoral year (2017/18). 203 relates to the number of names of Bollington men who gave their lives in the two world wars.
