Rambling Man Walks The Ridgeway: From Overton Hill to Ivinghoe Beacon

All good journeys start somewhere. There is always a beginning. There is always the place where it all starts.

The
place where the journey starts may be amazing. It may be mundane. It
may be glamorous. It may be dour. It may be exciting and adventurous. Or
it may be besides a road a few miles away from Swindon.

The
Ridgeway goes for the Swindon based option to start its journey; a
National Trail that follows the part of the absolutely ancient former
"green" road known as The Ridge Way.

The modern route is just a
bit shorter the original 400 mile one. The National Trail was opened in
1973 and provides a route for walkers connecting Overton Hill in
Wiltshire with Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire; an 87 mile route with
ancient forts, barrows, white horses, monuments and more. Or, if you're
Rambling Man, you get rural pubs playing trance music and revelations
about 1980s television programme Button Moon, that shake you to the
core.

About the author

Andrew Bowden was born and raised in Manchester and spent much of his early years being dragged around Etherow Country Park a few miles from his parents house.  After abandoning hiking in his teenage years in favour of spending far too much time in front of computer games, he returned to the hills after settling in London.
He has walked far more trails than he'd like to admit to.

Losing weight has never been easier or more fun than with Leslie Sansone's WALK AWAY THE POUNDS. For over twenty-five years, Leslie has helped more women get off the couch and onto their feet than anyone else in the fitness industry. Her secret? If you can walk, you can achieve the weight-loss goals you dream about...with none of the intimidation or negative messages that have stopped you from succeeding before. Whether you are a beginner or have been walking with Leslie for years, whether you are a teen or a senior or somewhere in between, you will see results. You will lose real weight, and keep it off-twenty pounds, forty, sixty, or even more. All you need is fifteen minutes a day for starters, two feet, and a willing attitude. There is no fancy equipment to buy, no fad diet to follow, and no fitness club to join. The revolutionary program in WALK AWAY THE POUNDS is designed to keep everybody on the path to success, especially those who have never been able to complete a weight-loss plan before. It's a simpler approach to fitness, one that can change your life. Leslie's step-by-step workbook format sets up the program day by day. You just wake up, flip open the book, and follow the directions. You'll get a combination of in-home walking (that's right, you can do it right from the comfort of your own living room!), simple strength training, motivational breakthroughs, and commonsense advice to help you burn fat, tone muscle, reduce stress, avoid illness, shake off the blues, and boost your energy level sky high. It's never been easier. Women all across America have dropped between 20 and 150 pounds with Leslie Sansone. Now you can too!
