Welcome to

I'd Rather Be Outdoors

I'd Rather Be Outdoors

At I'd Rather Be Outdoors, I offer Nordic Walks, Canicross and Pilates Sessions in and around Stockport, Marple, High Peak and in Lyme Park.

Our Regular Walks take place on a variety of circular routes around the area, using a mixture of streets, canals, parks, woodland, riverside paths, and bridlepaths. It’s sometimes surprising how quickly you can go from urban to semi rural, I love getting to show off walks or a surprising viewpoint off the beaten track that otherwise may have stayed hidden.

It’s great to share that appreciation with others who enjoy getting outdoors for it’s mood boosting effects, confidence, chatter, and fitness too.

Our walks are on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.   

Sometimes we go further afield for our Longer Walks, Peak District, Macclesfield Forest etc

On Fridays and Saturdays there are Canicross Tasters, Intros and Improvers sessions available.

Pilates is at The Studio at The Mill, Stockport on Wednesdays and Fridays.

I'd love to be able to help you get Outdoors too.
