As a club we encourage carpooling. There are a number of advantages to carpooling.
For environmental reasons less cars means less fuel and less pollution. Also space for car parking can be a challenge on some walks – we don’t want to be blocking gates or tracks that are in use by locals.
If you are interested in car-pooling please let the walk leader know if you are looking or offering. The walk leader can often be helpful in putting people in touch with each other but depending on the walk and who else is going, you will need to be prepared to have your own transport.
We recommend a contribution of €10 to the driver for any of our regular weekend walks.
