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’. 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’. Special walking holidays which have included trips to Crete, Egypt, Sicily, Malta, Slovenia Sr Lanka, Italy and Bulgaria. In addition to the above there is of course the annual Christmas function.  See the Programme page to see 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: walks.coord@gmail.com 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.

2.      During the Autumn & Winter months you carry appropriate foul weather clothing.

3.      During the Spring & Summer months you protect yourself against the sun.

4.      To prevent dehydration or heatstroke, you must take and drink at least half a litre of water for every hour you expect to be walking (juices & energy drinks are OK).

5.      Most walks involve stopping for lunch, so ensure you have packed food.
