I'm going to set up a vegan hiking club, cos I'm not aware of one existing at present. This is following an experience in which a local hiking group that I'd joined completely failed to respect my veganism, and insisted on putting milk in everything.
I'd really like to go on weekends away with a group sometimes, hiring a camping barn and either sharing a vegan meal or planning the trip around a nearby pub that does proper vegan options. Rather than being the awkward, odd one out.
My thoughts so far are that members could pay a small fee (according to income) which covers any admin costs, then get a newsletter (on paper or by email) which has news and views, proposed weekend trips, gear swaps, reviews of B and Bs, gear, cafes, pubs etc.
It could all be pretty informal, and members could sign a disclaimer to say that they are going walking at their own risk.
Any thoughts from anyone?
