BC Randonneurs Cycling Club

Jim Runkel - Member at Large

I was introduced to the club in 2009 via the Vic POP and my friend Philip Lennox. 2010 was my first full year of randonneuring. It included completing Hell Week, and one Ultra - 1000. PBP was also coming and I wanted to be attend this event. In 2011 another Hell Week was done, and PBP was attended and successfully completed.

I enjoy many aspects of this sport. Not only does it provide a physical challenge, but navigation and control time management requires a mental component too.

Cycling is a great fit for my lifestyle and my pursuit of health in general.

I enjoy all things on two wheels including riding my motorcycle on race tracks in WA state. I run in the winter months and enjoy 1/2 marathons. As well my family and I snowboard.

I am excited about helping this amazing club move forward in 2014 as a Member at Large.
