With a regular walks programme the Cyprus Rambling Club are a very active group. Here is a brief introduction for those who have not heard of them before.
The Cyprus Rambling Club can lay claim to being one of the oldest clubs still flourishing within Cyprus. It all began back in 1970 when a handful of Royal Air Force families living in Limassol came up with the idea of going for a walk and a picnic somewhere out of town on Sundays and formed the Cyprus Services Rambling Club (CSRC). Little could this original group of friends imagine that their club would still be run on basically the same lines so many years later. However, since 2004 the numbers of Military personnel stationed in Cyprus have rapidly declined and today the Club membership comprises of local residents, which gives the Club a rich diversity of experience and interest.
To reflect this diversity, in 2014 the Club was renamed the Cyprus Rambling Club (CRC).
Our fortnightly walks programme aims to provide a full and varied selection of rambles to suit most reasonably fit people. Included within the programme, will be some tough and challenging routes for the serious walkers. Also included in our annual programme are ‘Rambling Weekends’ which are a great chance for you to bond with other club members. Staying in hotels at specially negotiated prices, the CRC have enjoyed locations from the Akamas Peninsular to Ayia Napa, from Paphos to Protaras. Occasionally the club offers an ‘Overseas Rambling Holiday’ which have included trips to Crete, Sicily, Slovenia Sri Lanka, Italy, Bulgaria and in September 2015, Poland. In addition to the above there is of course the annual Christmas function. See the Programme page on the website to check out our planned forthcoming schedule of walks and events.
Joining the CRC is very easy; just choose your walk from the programme, book your place by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org and then join us for the walk.
Newcomers are very welcome to join us for three walks, after which they are obliged to join the Club; so come along and see if it suits you. If it does, you can apply for a membership form at any time.
How much does it cost to join? Individual Membership is €10 per year (1 Nov to 31 Oct). Family Membership for parents and children up to 18 years of age is €20. As a Member you will be entitled and welcome to all special CRC holidays and events.
