Yutaka's Back!
Yutaka Moriwaki returns to BC
~ May 14-24
by Eric Fergusson

Newer riders may not be familiar with Member 1692 Yutaka Moriwaki. He visited BC from Japan more or less continuously from 2008 to 2014 to tackle our toughest ultracycing events, all on Vancouver Island, including 2 Ultimate Island Explorer 2000 kms. He was back in May to ride the challenging Gold Rush Trail 1000 and took the opportunity visit some old friends.

Below we see a 2019 200 km brevet pin from Yutaka's club Audax Japan Kinki, a sub-organization of Audax Japan. It was designed by Yutaka. He says that the inspiration for the pins was our BC finishers pins. More at this link.
