SHORTENED WALK OPTIONS: The Rambles Organiser has advised that an optional shortened version of a walk can be offered when:
1. The route is a figure-of-8, with the whole group returning to the start at the end of the shorter option, then the longer walkers continuing along a second loop OR
2. A second leader is appointed IN ADVANCE to lead the shorter option. Ideally, the second leader will have recced the route, but this may not be necessary if the leader is experienced and/or is familiar with the location and/or the route back to the start is very straightforward.
