What Is CKAP

CKAP is a incentive program offered by the Canadian Kilometer Achiever Program. Our goal is to inspire all cyclists in Canada and beyond to ride and reach their goal, in improved health and lifestyle.

The program grew out of the vision of one man, Tom Parry, who metaphorically challenged all cyclist to join teams, cycling from all parts of Canada to the 1976 Montreal Olympics .

You can set yourself distance goals each year and work to achieve them. Each kilometer you cycle adds to your CKAP total. The kilometers keep building for you and for everyone in the program. Up to the end of the year 2016 , participants have logged 31,094,571 kilometers.

How Does CKAP Work

As you reach recognized CKAP km totals you become eligible to receive awards.

Send in your registration form, to the CKAP Coordinator and attach any fees payable to CKAP. He will send you a comfirmation letter, CKAP number and annual cycling log, with instructions. Each year you can choose to receive the CKAP annual report by way of web site address in PDF format, or black and white hard copy by Canada Post. You may wish to download Microsoft Excel formatted or PDF cycling logs from the CKAP web site.
Members not on line will receive their next cycling log with their annul report by Canada Post.

There are Excel Cycling logs which can be saved in a folder on your PC. They are formatted to do all the adding for you. Instruction are included at the web site.
PDF formatted cycling logs are also available for those who don't have Excel.

Using your bicycle computer, keep track of how many kilometers you cycled each week. Record your results on your cycling log. week by week. Weekly totals should be in whole kilometers. Include partial km in the following week by subtracting last weeks ODM total from this weeks using only whole km to get total km cycled during the week. Fill in the boxes for the monthly totals, and quarterly, or if using the Excel logs it's done for you. All on the road km count. No indoor trainers, or professionally logged km (couriers) please.

Special Needs (wheelchairs) may use the sidewalk where appropriate. They may also count training and sports in a gym or track. They must remove their bicycle computer at home and work, but can count trips to and from work. In the end the Special Needs member must use their judgement as to what is appropriate for them to count, knowing that they cannot count in home or work km.

At the end of each year, you submit your log to the CKAP Coordinator and you will receive a annual report and the awards you may have earned.

You can choose to fill in your cycling log by weekly or monthly totals. If using the CKAP Excel formatted cycling log by weekly totals the 0 in the total cells will change as you enter weekly total. If using monthly totals only, you don't have to delete the 0 as it will disappear as you add your monthly total to the cell.
