Day 18 of Walk all over Cancer – Footpaths of Bedgebury. Todays steps: 11,147. Monthly total: 250,634

Todays walk is around footpaths in Bedgebury as part of our fundraising for Walk all Over Cancer raising money for Cancer Research. Feel free to use this guide, but a donation to the cause would be gratefully received..

I walk a dog who lives on the edge of Bedgebury, so today we just went exploring without a planned route. Often the best walks can start this way. There are many footpaths that lead to new areas of your neighbourhood that you may not have explored before. I will often pull up on the side of the road, park in a safe place, then follow a marked footpath across fields with the dogs.

Maybe this was an opt out. I usually have a set route I do with little Dottie, but part of this months challenge for me was to also explore new places and get more people out by sharing these on my blog. Today I hadn’t planned a route so we just set off following new footpaths rather than our normal walk, knowing we had the option just to turn round when we had done enough.
