Hampshire Countryside Service



These are the more formal groups who have web-sites; there are also a number of small, informal, groups which you can find out about by asking around locally.

Dog walking

In addition to the groups listed under the 'Local walking groups' page, there are some groups aimed specifically at dog walkers


Club members invariably know the best routes and run many events, including guided rides and events open to non-members. Clubs in Hampshire include the following branches of the Cyclists' Touring Club ('CTC')


These organisation all have links with many local clubs and facilities.


Motor Vehicles

Some groups concentrate on protecting the rights of motor vehicle users in the countryside and others organise events and provide opportunities to use your vehicle off-road.

Disabled Access

Also see the riding, carriage-driving and vehicle groups listed above.


Groups in our area include the following, many of whom offer volunteering opportunities
