    The idea of Fossil Fuel Free multi-sport outings is to show you can have lots of fun doing multi-sport activities or holidaying, without burning a single drop of fossil fuel to achieve it. This is in contrast to many multi-sport events which rely on lots of fossil-fuel-burning support vehicles to transfer gear around the country.

    After the highs of a month in the Netherlands, I still had another month to check out some of the “lesser lights” of European cycling (which, compared with New Zealand, invariably still means better than most of us…). The next stop after Enschede was a train ride to the Atlantic French city of Nantes, where
