New West Coast CKAP Director
At the request of the current CKAP Board, Ken Bonner,
a member of the BC Randonneurs who is welded to his bicycle (28,660km in 2012!),
has agreed to be the CKAP West Coast Director until 2015.
The CKAP Board thanks Ken for taking on this role in promoting CKAP out west.
Many thanks are also extending to Raymond Parker, who after 7 years as CKAP West Coast Director, decided that it was time to resign. Raymond had continued on as a CKAP director and a member of the BC Randonneurs while overcoming 2 bouts of cancer, but a run in with a car while cycling left him with a serious ankle injury. This has severely limited his cycling, and he felt that it was better to pass the CKAP West Coast directorship to Ken R. Bonner.
Ray (CKAP# 1297) will be greatly missed, since not only did he promote CKAP, but also, as a professional photographer, he kept us supplied with great photos of west coast members. You can visit his web site at: www.veloweb.ca

I just wanted to let you know that I now am allowing you to "cycle" through all of the currently databased members pictures from the MEMBERS page. If you click on any member picture shown on that page, you will get further detail on that first picture, and continuing to click on the next picture shown will cycle you through all pictures stored for that person. There is a link under the picture to allow you to send me any details you'd like added to a particular picture. There is some cosmetic work for me to do on this page, and, as I mentioned, I still have 2000+ pictures to database, but I hope that there's plenty enough for you to enjoy right now!
Please let me ( email@example.com ) know if you notice any errors in the details shown for the member pictures.

After much work (which even had Sir James analyzing old handwritten logs from Tom Parry's days in the 1970's!), we have databased the yearly kilometers ridden by all CKAP members.
Meanwhile, I am in the process of databasing virtually everything that is on the site. This will make it much easier to manage the CKAP web site in the future and to keep your totals accurate. Until the databasing is complete, some of the older manually maintained pages may contain old information.

CKAP News 13th. August 2009
|After 15 years plus it’s time for “Sir” James to take a well deserved rest and allow new younger
board members to take over control of CKAP.
I do this reluctantly as it has become a habit to live in my basement office during the winter.
Paul Dicks # 1206 from Mississauga , Ontario will become the new CKAP Coordinator and starting with your 2009 logs, all logs and mail should be sent to Paul. I will be there to help Paul if needed during this first year, longer if required but hope that Paul will be on his own starting with the year 2010
Celia McInnis # 1159 from Ottawa , Ontario will become CKAP’s new webmaster. Celia McInnis will be improving the web page and taking it to the next level by adding a database which will replace the yearly list of current members by km. With a database and Celia’s skills, members will be able to add their own km directly to the CKAP web page and a yearly history of each member will become available to each member. This work is far beyond my ability but Celia has been doing this for years by keeping data on Ottawa time trials and is very qualified in this field.
“Sir” James will be responsible for ordering all awards and CKAP jerseys as required, printing all certificates, mailing awards, jerseys and hard copy of the CKAP annual report.
I’m sure that we will have a few bumps in the road with these major changes and I ask CKAP members to bear with us till we have it all sorted out. You will now have three qualified members doing the job that “Sir” James did alone and I know CKAP will improve by sharing the work and new ideas.
Please direct your 2009 cycling logs toPaul M. Dicks plus any funds payable to CKAP. Log and brochure addresses will be changed along with the list of CKAP board members on the web.
This would be a good time if you are connected to the internet to change from a hard paper copy of the annual report, to the web version, which is in colour and PDF format. Please contact James if you wish to change.
“Sir” James wishes to thank all CKAP members who have supported me during the 15 years plus that I was involved as your coordinator and
hope that you will also support our new directors in the same way. It was a great trip with no complaints along the way
and it’s not over yet,

|CKAP is a sponsor of the Ontario Randonneurs (OR) Granite Anvil 1200 brevet which is new
starting this year and the only Ontario 1200 km brevet.
We have supplied OR with 85 CKAP decals and brochures to add to the riders and volunteers start information bag.
It is hoped that this will bring CKAP a few new members and maybe bring OR a little closer to BC Randonneurs as far as CKAP membership is concerned.
Volunteers Still Needed at This Late Date!
The Granite Anvil 1200 Brevet, starts in Oshawa, Ontario Thursday the 13th to finish Sunday the 16th. August 2009.
Quote Jim Morris: Is it possible for you to post to your list that we are looking for volunteers to man checkpoints…
they even get a free T-shirt!
Please help if you can! “Sir” James

Hi, Sir James!
I would like to ride a fast 1200k at the Granite Anvil this coming August. I am hoping that you might know some local folks
who are not already involved in volunteering with the organization of the Granite Anvil who might be interested in driving
my ‘stuff’ (clothes, food, drink) from one control to another.

Canadian Kilometer Achiever Program (CKAP)
The Board passed a motion to split off the webmaster role from the Co-ordinator’s job and is looking for a volunteer with good web skills to maintain, update and possibly redesign the CKAP website.
CKAP has a new secretary Sheila Ashcroft CKAP 1184 – Welcome aboard Sheila! Looks like a big win, win for CKAP.
CKAP will be one of the sponsors of the Ontario Randonneurs Granite Anvil 1200 km and will supply 85 CKAP brochures and decals to go in the package of each rider and volunteer.
CKAP has 69 gold and 27 silver old style CKAP badges (dark blue with silver or gold wire stitching) but no bronze to complete a set. We would like very much to sell these badges to CKAP members who didn’t purchase them when earned or member who would just like to have them. We will sell these badges at cost, $4.00 ea including postage, $2.00 extra if a certificate is requested, as postage would then be over $1.00. These badges will be disposed of if not purchased this fiscal year, end of February 2010. Members can purchase these badges even if they have yet to earn them and then purchase the newer version when they have reached the required km distance.
CKAP has 61 100% heavy duty cotton T-shirts which are not moving and we need cash if we are to purchase an updated version. These T-shirts have 14,000,000 km and counting printed in the design as their only problem as were now close to 21,000,000. It was decided that as we were selling the T-shirts at ½ price of only $10.00 that it was a good deal and we would not change the price. However James would like to see these T-shirts moved so we can put Charlie to work designing a new non dated T-shirt design and place an order. Please check out the CKAP web site for available sizes.
James will continue to serve as your CKAP Coordinator for as long as it takes to find a suitable replacement or replacements, which the CKAP board approves of to continue CKAP’s 35 year continually improving program.

|This informatiom was put on the CKAP List Page earlier this year but I thought I would add to
the "News" before deleting the original message.
1. A short while ago, someone raised the question of titanium bicycles for touring + randonneur cycling. For those folks living on Vancouver Island, please note that Fort Street Cycle (on Fort Street in Victoria) is now carrying LightSpeed titanium bicycles. I suspect they were influenced by the longevity of my 8 year old LightSpeed, which they keep in good working order; and, the number of VanIsle 1200 riders from the U.S. who were riding titanium bikes.
2. Saddle sores – I’ve been plagued by saddle sores ever since I first rode more than 160 k. I have a VERY large bag of ointments, creams, bandages, etc. to try and deal with the problem. The only thing that helped the pain, but not the saddle sore, was to use Lanacane (which includes a pain-killer). Michel Richard introduced this to me. However, it did not prevent the saddle sores from occurring.
A couple of years ago I spotted a product called Body Glide in the U.S., then discovered that it was available at Frontrunners Running store on Vancouver Street in Victoria. I’ve been using the product for the last couple of years. It comes in several sizes of containers that look like deodorant sticks. Easy to carry and no mess!! I apply it to my body and my cycling shorts prior to riding, then re-apply every 200-300 km.. Saddle sores have ceased to be a problem (now I can concentrate and truly enjoy the exquisite pain emanating from the bottom of my foot!)
Most running stores carry Body Glide (eg. Frontrunners and the Running Room- Victoria) and some bicycle stores (eg. Fort Street Cycle - Victoria).
Note: James has purchased Body Glide at the Runnung Room in the Glebe on Bank Street Ottawa, Ontario.

CKAP News 10th. March 2008
|CKAP held its annual board meeting 09 May 2007 and three items where passed that should be of interest to members.
Due to the increase in cost for postage, engraving, medals, badges, internet service and office supplies and the fact that we were selling jerseys at cost prices, which has left no funds to place orders and made the daily operations of CKAP dependent on other mean of funds, the board voted to increase the membership fee and paid awards effective July 1, 2007. This is the first increase since 1994.
Registration fee: $25.00 to $30.00 - USA members $35.00 USD - UK members $40.00 USD
CKAP recognizes that some members goals and ablities are greater than others. For this reason CKAP has created the 25,000 km plaque made available to qualifying members at the cost of $35.00 each. postage paid. This award is there for members who feel that they require this plaque and for them it was a hard earned effort to reach, and 100,000 km is just to far between awards for them.

|Hello Sir, James,
Hope all is well with you and your family, including Molly. I'm doing well and Patsy is recovering at home. (knee replacement) She still has a great deal of pain, but that is to be expected for awhile.
I received this newspaper article from a friend yesterday ."Florrie" Graham Bridgman rode with us Carolina Cyclers when she was a kid, and growing up.
she married and moved to Alabama. I did not realize that she was still cycling, but looks like she is a tough lady on a bicycle.
I'm sure Woody (Frank A. "Woody" Graham III CKAP # 274) is proud of her.

CKAP # 835 & 834
Dated: 14 August 2005
Enclosed is the cheque to order Judy's CKAP short sleeve jersey in a medium.
As I said in the e-mail, Judy had a Scleroderma renal crisis on December 2nd. which almost took her, which included 3 days in the ICU in Belleville and 4 days in the Cardiac ICU in Kingston. Scleroderma is a member of the Arthritis family, there is no cure and it is a progressive disease that builds collagens under the skin. It can also attack the heart / lung and kidneys. Judy's Rheumatologist is super pleased with her results and progress.
I thought I'd share with you her charts considering that she will probably get a blood transfusion tomorrow, due to an ulcer that resists curing. This is from when she got permission to get on the trainer on Feb. 23rd. Hopefully things will get straightened around next week on her 4th. Endoscopy and Cauterization and she hopes to get on the road very soon.
Larry and I were really upset to hear about your accident. from reports it appears that you are doing much better but still have a long road to go. Remember if Lance can do it, so can you.
James is doing much better, I'm home on the weekends and I managed to weed the front lawn this weekend with a long handle weeder although I walked like a puppet, very jerky, but I managed to finish.
On December 2nd. 2004 I had a serious Scleroderma renal crisis that almost took me. Thanks to the Dr's and staff at both Belleville General Hospital I.C.U. and the C.C.U. at Kingston General I survived. there was no damage done to my heart and lungs, accredited to my excellent level of fitness that I have maintained for the last 20 years with the CKAP program and walking
Since my release from the hospital I started cycling with permission from my doctors, in the basement and since Feb. 23rd. I have cycled 1,500 km.Some of these kilometers were tougher than others as I have had Gave's Syndrome (blood vessel leakers in the duodenum) which caused my red blood cell count to drop resulting in 5 transfusions. The condition has since been corrected and I could have been getting some km's on the road, However, the extreme heat has relegated this season to be in the basement but as you can see I have surpassed 1,500 km.
I am really anxious to get back on the road and when everything is settled down I will.
We really hope that you continue to feel better, are able to get back on your bike and we will keep you in our prayers.
James hopes to be able to get a few rides on my bike this year, but I have to learn to walk before I can ride.
James and all CKAP members wish Judy continued recovery and the hope you can put it all behind you and will be able to hit the road with Larry in the near future.

James will try to accommodate all he receives but once the annual report goes to press and is converted to PDF for the web page that's it.
Any log arriving after that will go into the data base and will show on next years annul report, plus your km will not count towards the Hewes
Challenge, so please try and get your log in on time.
Noted Problem by James:
Members using Excel formatted logs then filling them out with pen? If you can open the Excel log you should be able to fill it out using your computer. Having problems? There are instructions on the page, or send an e-mail to James with your problem. Don't have Excel? Then scroll past the Excel logs and instructions and you will find below the same logs in PDF format which can be opened with an Adobe Reader which most computer have. Don't have one, or it's not working because it's out of date? Then go on line and download the Adobe Reader from the same page.
