After you have got ar ride the best thing to do, if you are going to Poland, is get out at roundabout just after Kekava (even if the car can take you to Iecava or Bauska). There you will see a lot of traffic going straight to Poland or even further. Just make sure you have a sign.
The best option is to take a minibus from the MTS (central minibus station at the junction of Elizabetes iela & Satekles iela) to the village of Ķekava (about 20kms south-east of Riga).
Check [http://rtp.lv/pdf/6844.pdf here] for the timetable . It costs €1. The minibus goes as far as Dārznieku iela junction along the A7 before doubling back and going into Ķekava. So, when the minibus does a U-turn on the highway, get off at that bus-stop (it's called ''Ķekava'') on the opposite side of the road from which the minibus came from! From there, you've got about a 2km walk south along the highway A7 to the hitching point 100m past the large roundabout. You can try to hitch as you walk. It is worth the trouble and expense to get here as you will cut out all the local traffic and there will be a lot of long distance traffic at a slow enough speed to safely pull over onto the side road just 100m after the roundabout exit.
If you are next to RIX airport, try asking drivers of cars with Lithuanian number plates LT
