About the event

We will be holding a basic map reading session on Sunday 19th of February starting at 10 am. The location will be at either Fryup Village Hall or The Yorkshire Cycle Hub dependent on numbers.

The day is very laid back and participants can move through the subjects covered at their own pace without feeling pressured; the session covers the basics of navigation using a map and compass. Although primarily aimed at runners and walkers with little or no navigation experience it is also ideal for people wanting to brush up on forgotten skills …

Subjects include:

Map symbols and information,

Map orientation,

Grid references,

Magnetic compass,

Taking and setting of bearings both grid and magnetic,

 The use of technology to aid your navigation,

Contours, landforms and more…

The cost is £28 which includes all equipment, tea and coffee.

Part of the session will be outdoors so you will need to have appropriate clothing.

You are welcome to bring your own packed lunch or use the Yorkshire Cycle Hub cafe which is less than five minutes drive away. There will be a 30-40 minute break for tiffin.

If you are interested please message me asap. Limited to 8/10 places.
