As we approach the start of this club’s 9th season of activities, the identity of The Cyprus Strollers is well documented, by our record of accomplishments.
Regular Strollers have come to recognize us as the only hiking club in Cyprus with a dedicated website, in English, organizing a hike in the countryside, every weekend, from October through May. Over the past 4 years the club has conducted
- 129 activities,
- covering 1225 km,
- hiking for 404 hours.
Interestingly, hiking as a sport is experiencing growth, in consequence, and hikers now have more choice.
Then, there are further aspects to the personality of The Cyprus Strollers, exemplified by:
