Description

Calling Adelaide Knitters!! Want an excuse to get outside and go for a nature walk? Want to be able to meet and chat to other like-minded knitters at the same time? How about combining a nature walk with some knitting in the outdoors? Then this hike is for you! :-)

We will be taking on the Microcarpa loop trail in Belair National Park at a nice leisurely pace with plenty of time for stopping to take photos along the way. Then we will take a break where we can eat our packed lunches/snacks and get out our project bags for a bit of knitting in nature! What a lovely peaceful and fun way to spend a few hours on a Saturday! It could also be a great way to meet fellow Adelaide knitters, indie dyers and pattern designers in the "real world" rather than simply following along on Instagram and Ravelry! If you prefer to crochet rather than knit, you are welcome to come too of course!

Deatils of the route: We will be walking a loop route that takes in the Microcarpa track in Belair, with a possible extension to include another nearby track depending on the fitness level and speed of the group on the day. The route is approx. 5-6km in length, and covers a range of terrain from relatively smooth sections of compacted paths and some undulating uneven terrain, some slopes up and down.

Note: Your hike host is Sarah (@HappyHobbit1 and @jetsetgo.fitness on Instagram). Sarah loves knitting as a hobby and is keen to connect with other Adelaide knitters who share her passion for creative things as well as the outdoors! The first of our "Knit & Hike" events was run in April and was lots of fun, and by popular demand they will now be run approx. once per month.

JetSetGo Fitness has a commercial tour license from DEWNR to run activities in Adelaide’s National Parks.

Requirements for participating:

Everyone participating will need to sign a waiver to say they are exercising at their own risk before commencing the hike.All participants will also be required to complete a pre-exercise screening form to help identify anyone who may be at higher risk of an adverse event during the hike. E.g. If you have particular medical issues/injuries or recent joint replacements in your knees/hips/ankles/hips this would not be suitable without medical clearance.

If you are interested in joining us, but are concerned you may not have the fitness level to take part - please contact Sarah before registering - she will be happy to chat over the phone and help you decide if it would be suitable or not and whether you might need to seek medical clearance first. JetSetGo Fitness may refuse to allow a client to participate if they are deemed to be at higher risk of an adverse event during the activity for health/fitness reasons or for other safety reasons e.g. due to not bringing appropriate gear/clothing on the hike.
