GREY HARES WALKING GROUP

We walk (almost) every Tuesday and every Thursday.

Tuesday walks vary in length from 10km to over 20km.

Thursday walks are about 7km and often terminate at a restaurant

coffee break

Dear Hares,

Covid restrictions are a distant memory and the Hares are merrily romping on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Why not join us? Send an email to luxgreyhares-at-gmail.com if you are interested.

 

Bonus Walks are 6-8km, often followed by a meal

     

LONG WALK CHARACTERISTICS

Length - 19km +-2km, i.e. a full day excursion.
Max. travel time to start of walk (from Luxembourg city) - up to approx. 1,5hrs (that gets us to most parts of the country).

 

SHORT WALK CHARACTERISTICS

Length - 10km +-2km, i.e. a half-day excursion, either a.m. or p.m.
Max. travel time to start of walk (from Lux city) - up to approx. 1hr (that limits us to parts of the country quickly accessible from Luxembourg city).

SENTIER WALK CHARACTERISTICS

Length - 15km +-2km, i.e. a half-day excursion, either a.m. or p.m.
Max. travel time to start of walk (from Lux city) - up to approx. 1.5hr. You will be "led" along one of the many waymarked trails in Luxembourg or over the border.

 

NOTICES OF WALKS
================

Walk leaders are asked to mail to the Grey Hares list (see MAIL LIST below) in good time, and not later than 1 week before hand, with the following details:

- exact time and location of start of the walk itself (to make it easy for those who want to bring cars)
- public transport routes to the start point
- length of the walk
- exact destination (including name of café if possible) and estimated arrival time
- things to see along the way
- terrain (rough, roads, muddy, etc.)
- any significant climbs and descents
- public transport routes from destination to Luxembourg city
- walk leader's mobile phone number.

In this way Hares can

- make an informed choice about coming on each walk,
- fix up their own transport arrangements,
- put the walk leader's number in their phone in case they get lost!

You can ask Ian to email the GH group, otherwise Ann, Martin or Dan can help with this. See below for further details.

MAILING LIST
==========

MAILING THE GREY HARES
======================
Walk organisers should send details of their walk in an email to luxgreyhares@gmail.com (do NOT reply to another Hares' email as the reply address will probably be a walk leader).
The mail will then be forwarded to the Grey Hares in as short a delay as possible (This is done manually to avoid any spam being forwarded).
Any Hare who need to send an e-mail to all the Grey Hares should use the same procedure, although the organisers reserve the right to NOT forward any mail they think is inappropriate.
The mailbox and list is held by Ian Allwright. To avoid proliferation of different lists, the email addresses of the Grey Hares will no longer be sent out.

If you want to mail a walk leader or one of the coordinators, please address your mail just to them. If you are responding to a notice to all Hares, please use "Reply" to the originator and NOT "Reply all", which just clutters up everybody else's mailboxes!

If you want to be removed from the list or you know of someone who would like to be added, just mail Ian at luxgreyhares@gmail.com . Please check also that no Grey Hare in good standing has been omitted from the address list of this mail - if so, mail Ian.

The above is the necessary minimum to hold our leaderless group** together. Just follow these guidelines and it should work fine.

** It's important to understand that we are not an a.s.b.l., we have no insurances and the coordinators and walk organisers offer their services without any further liability on their part. People take part in Grey Hares events entirely at their own risk.
