Walkablock Club of America has thousands of members and has been growing Since 1985.  If you need a walking partner consider joining the club then email them and they will try and find one for you.  Give them your city, state and surrounding cities etc.  Their vision is to develop hundreds of local walking clubs across America walking their own neighborhoods and communities.  The Walkablock Club was founded to give members support toward maintaining daily physical activity and developing the friendship factor. Walking is without a doubt the most common form of physical activity, as well as a social standard. Increased activity level will heighten your quality of life.

Would you like to “ramble” in Europe?  Then perhaps this group can help you do just that. The European Rambler’s Association  (ERA) was founded in Germany in 1969 and by 1971 consisted of 14 ramblers’ organisations from six countries. Today, this umbrella organisation comprises 50 ramblers’ organizations from 26 European states (+2 ramblers’ organisations from Israel and Morocco as observers). These organisations have a total of over 5 million individual members. Most of the member organisations have more than fifty years’ experience in organising and creating conditions to facilitate walking (path marking, construction of huts, viewing towers, shipyards, campsites etc.), and a number of them have been in existence for more than one hundred years (the oldest for more than 130 years).
