Five people took part in the world’s second ever fossil fuel free multisport outing, which took place on Sunday 17th February 2013. The idea was to do multisport without burning a single drop of fossil fuel to achieve it, in contrast to many multisport events which rely on lots of fossil-fuel-burning support vehicles to transfer gear around the country.
The route was more ambitious than the very successful 2011 outing (details here) on the Styx River. It involved a 20km bike ride from Central City to McLean’s Island towing kayaks, a 12km paddle down the Waimakariri River, a 12km run back to collect the bikes and kayak trolleys, a 12km ride back to collect the kayaks, then a 15km bike back to central city with kayaks in tow.
It was a very good day out and you can see the whole story here.
