This special AGM edition celebrates the achievements of the 2016-2017 season, reviews the year that was and looks forward to the events of 2018.
It was my intent to document the various awards so that those like myself who are unaware of the requirements or history of the awards could have a better appreciation beyond just the raw distances in brevet kilometres traveled. It turns out this is a broad topic and so in order to do it justice, there will be an “award of the month” article in future newsletters covering the topic in an appropriate amount of detail.
For now though you will just have to be as awestruck as I am at the commitment and accomplishment of covering so many kilometres in a year.
