Peace to Parliament ride leaves FSJ

A group of riders from the British Columbia Randonneur Cycling Club made the trip to Fort St. John from the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island to embark on a week-long bike trip from the Peace Region to the legislature building in Victoria. 

Known as Peace to Parliament, Ron Stewart organized the event, which will see riders complete a “series,” which is when a randonneur completes a 200km ride, a 300, a 400 and a 600km ride in one season—all in one week.

The riders left from the Whole Wheat and Honey building at 4 a.m. on June 18, having to be in Mackenzie by midnight later that day. They will finish their ride on June 24 with a 200km ride from Duncan, over to the west coast, then down to Victoria. 

“We’re looking forward to the scenery,” said Stewart, adding that he loves the camaraderie that comes with these rides, and that the social aspect is far more enjoyable than any competitive aspect.
