It's hot! There is no better way to cool off then to dip in the water!

You can walk or cycle to Bathampton, and join us for a quick dip. For those not feeling too brave, you can wade into the water so can stay ankle deep if this makes you feel more comfortable :)

Bring warm clothes / hot drinks for afterwards

In at the deep end

Tue 8 Jun
Report written by Helen Conner

Rather than working up a sweat, it was time to have a chill! Time to relax, kick back, chat and unwind.

6 Goodgymers met after work for a cooling dip in the river. We all slowly walked into the river and then one by one took the plunge and swam out. Some of us were much faster into the water than the others :)

We didn't stay in for long and soon retreated back to our gear on the back and then chilled out on the side chatting whilst we warmed up.

We all agreed it was a great experience and have booked in to go again next week weather dependent!

Welcome to Alex who joined us for his first ever Goodgym Session! Welcome Alex, we look forward to seeing you at future missions and swims

I just fish I had given more notice!

Sat 5 Jun
Report written by Helen Conner

The weather was beautiful so I thought organising a wild swimming dip was order. I gave the Goodgym group only 12 hours notice which in hindsight wasn't the best idea but I had thought that I needed to capitalise on the weather so I thought it was worth giving it a go.

Unfortunately only I could make the wild swim dip. But the great news is that I have learnt that Sundays and weekday evenings work best for those who are interested in trying this newly adopted UK sport! :)

Goodgym x Great Get Together - Walking and litter pick via Tunnels, Tucking mill and Prior park

Sun 20 Jun 09:15 am
Outside the White Hart pub, Widcombe Hill, Bathwick, BATH, BA2 6AA
Connect, chat, clear litter and get together

On Sunday 20th of June GoodGym is again partnering with the Great Get Together, the initiative set up following the murder of Jo Cox MP in 2016. The Great Get Together aims to bring people together to celebrate what they have in common and create connections between communities.

This year they are hosting the Great Walk Together as part of Refugee Week, a push to get people outside and walking and talking.

We will be doing a walk from Widcombe, through the longest of the Two Tunnels to Tucking mill and then back via the Bath Skyline past the beautiful Prior park down to Widcombe. It's about 7km and is a beautiful walk. Whilst walking we will be chatting and picking up any litter we see en route.
