Call it car-ditching, Transit and Trailing, car-free traveling, low-carbon adventures, or just another Saturday, going for a trail run by taking a train and a bus isn’t as complicated as it might seem. That’s what freelance journalist Mary Catherine O’Connor found out and then wrote this great piece on the Outside Magazine blog.
“I’ve always known I could get out of town without my car, I even looked at some transit time tables and pondered the possibilities,” she wrote. “But what I hadn’t considered is that, aside from eliminating the guilt I felt about driving to a trail (often alone, often with my mountain bike in the car), using transit affords much more flexibility than driving.”
