    Roger Street - sadly missed

    Roger Street was a well-known Super Randonneur and died of a heart attack on Feb 25/03 while riding his bike.

    "Roger has been a central figure in BC Randonneurs since he rode his first brevets in 1993. He is a two-time finisher at both Paris Brest Paris and the Rocky Mountain 1200, and a six-time super randonneur. He is one of only 9 BC riders to have earned 2 Brevet Randonneur 5000 pins (sometimes called 'Super 5000'.) In 1998 he was the winner of the John Hathaway Award with an event distance total of 5676 km... and it was Roger who first started calling the award by the name we all now commonly use - the Iron Butt Award. In 2000, he was looking for a change of pace and rode across Canada - Spanish Banks to Cape Spear, Nfld. - 7433 km, average riding speed 25 km/hr, 151 km/day."

    You can read his bio at:
    "Weary with toil, I haste me to my bed,
    The dear repose for limbs with travel tired;
    But then begins a journey in my head,
    To work my mind, when body's work's expired"
    -- Shakespeare Sonnet XXVII

    This is a guy who will be missed in cycling in general, and Canadian cycling in particular. My condolences to all who were close to Roger.
