Happy Monday Liftsharers!

Well it’s official – the weather is getting colder out there and the rain is coming in thick and fast. But fear not, because there’s a bumper week of big events up and down the UK for you to look forward to in this week’s guide.

We also thought we’d give you a heads up on the fourth annual International Ridesharing Day, which takes place October 26. This celebration of sharing and cost-effective travel originates from Sweden, but is gaining a following beyond those borders. There’s fun, festivities and more.

You can join the cause over on the event page linked above. Be sure to let us know on Twitter or Facebook if you do.

Without further ado, here is your week in Liftsharing for October 6 onward:
