Online Hitchhiking - Car Shares & Car Free Hikes

We've yet to try the car sharing systems now available due to the ever growing technologies out there but we will give it a go in the future. Initiatives like Blablacar & Carpooling are changing the way we hitch about the land although traditional means still exist as we can testify.

We've gotta get out there whether or not we have transport and if adventurous and green minded without the car if we have one. Projects such as Car Free Walks are there to help in addition.

The value of slow travel and travelling without the car is invaluable. Think about it in 1952 only 27% of journeys

were taken by car, van and or taxis. By 2013 this had increased to 83%. Suffice to say this has impacted on air quality, fittness, health and nature. So we need to get out of the cars.

Upper Wye

Getting to the Upper Wye near Rhayader, Elan valley, Llangurig and further on up near Aberystwyth is a little more tricky but good when you have sussed out the system. You can even get all the way to Snowdonia and back, the return journey of which we did in 2014. See Gallery shortly. Meanwhile here are the links you'll need.
