Fossil Fuel Free Multi-sport 2013

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.
