The Bengali rambling women
The BBC on a group of Bangladeshi ladies in London who go on rambles in London with the Ramblers’ Association - normally associated with countryside walks:
“We’re not going up mountains,” admitted outreach worker Caroline Watson.
“But for a lot of people, going into the countryside is not going to happen. It’s expensive, people don’t have cars and they have buggies to contend with.
“Some of the women in this group have never been up to the river [Thames] before and were surprised to find they could walk there.”
“A lot of women didn’t feel comfortable in exercise classes or wearing leotards, so walking just seemed like the ideal activity.”
