The weather forecast at time of writing tells a sharp contrast between coming Saturday and Sunday. Saturday is forecast with rain, at 100% probability, whereas Sunday is forecast SUNNY, with ZERO rain. Consequently, in consultation with the Walk Leader, the hike at Delikipos is moved from Saturday 17 Feb. to SUNDAY 18 Feb. Times and other details remain as described in the Activities Description section. Everybody who has registered already, is kindly requested to reconfirm their availability for Sunday 18th. Thank you.
Alert to all Strollers. Due to the weather forecast for Sunday 29 October the Walk Leader, in consultation with the Club Organizer, has decided to abandon the scheduled excursion to Kyparissia. In its place, the club plans to hike tomorrow at Stavrovouni, and invites all to participate. We set off for the car drive from the Handicrafrs Centre at 9:45 am. We aim to start hiking at 10:45 am. Read the detailed instructions for Stavrovouni in the Activities Description section. Read a forecast for the weather expected north of Stavrovouni here https://weather.com/weather/hourbyhour/l/CYXX0662:1:CY. Read a forecast for the weather expected south of Stavrovouni here https://weather.com/weather/hourbyhour/l/CYXX0629:1:CY. In short, at time of writing, the hourly weather forecast is “mostly sunny/ partly cloudy”, with probability of precipitation 0%, becoming 10-15% at 2 pm. If you have registered for Kyparissia and would like to abstain from Stavrovouni, please feel free to do so, sending an sms to the Club Organizer. If you had planned to abstain from Kyparissia and wish to join us at Stavrovouni, feel welcome, sending an sms to the Club Organizer. Lunch after the Stavrovouni hike will be at a taverna we have visited and appreciated on previous occasions.
Hello and welcome back, after your summer break. The Cyprus Strollers are ready to kick-off their 7th season of operation. Please visit the Activities Schedule section on http://cyprus-strollers.org, to view, download and study the program of weekly hiking activities for October, November and December 2017. For any activity that catches your attention, please visit the Activities Description section on http://cyprus-strollers.org to view, download and read a complete set of instructions.
Lots of new and exciting things are happening, and here are a few highlights:
There are 12 excursions scheduled
of these, 5 are either entirely new or hikes containing new aspects
There are 7 different Walk Leaders, who are responsible for leading the Cyprus Strollers on these 12 activities; this represents a great accomplishment, and is a clear sign of the true hiking spirit, a spirit of togetherness, sharing and giving
please join me in applauding Ian, Laurent, Yiannis, Christos, Stella with Teddy, and Patrick, the Walk Leaders for October – December 2017, alongside Xenophon
We are offering two linear trails where we shall not walk back to the starting point, because it would make hiking too long and arduous; inadvertently, this calls for special driving arrangements and registering in advance; please study the instructions very carefully and abide by them, respecting the organizers’ efforts and other participants
We start at high altitudes in October, in anticipation of warmer weather, and move to lower altitudes in December, when cold and rain are more likely
We set off driving from Nicosia at 9:45, but the first four excursions in October have an earlier start.
Furthermore, some things remain unchanged, and characterize the Cyprus Strollers as a unique hiking club; among them:
Commitment to first-class planning and organization
Excursions alternate between Saturdays and Sundays, thus appealing to more people
Dedicated website, fully informed, well in advance, in English
Our caring, multinational character; we are open to Strollers of any nationality, both permanent residents, as well as visitors to the island
Shared passion for hiking and enjoying the Cyprus countryside, in pleasant company
Well-chosen tavernas, serving us very good value meals at reasonable prices, because we honour them with our loyalty.
The Cyprus Strollers are committed to “Hiking made Pleasant”, our slogan. Please help us to carry on delivering on this promise, with your valuable contribution.
Thank you and enjoy the many walks in store. Xenophon
At the doorstep of our 7th Season of Activities, commencing 1st October 2017, the Cyprus Strollers take a look at the 6 memorable Seasons past, and cheerfully declare our performance in numbers:
902 kilometres walked
293 hours of hiking
We take the opportunity to extend our thanks to all Strollers who have contributed to this accomplishment. Come back to this website on September 4, to read and download the Activities Schedule for October – December 2017, and discover Hiking made Pleasant and the many thrills it brings.
