Vice President  Kryn Zedel
Times Colonist Circulation Sales

Kryn has been cycling in the Greater Victoria area since what seems like the beginning of time. He appreciates the cycling infrastructure within the capital region and recognizes the need for alternate modes of transportation.


Treasurer Jack_PhotoJack Wessel

After graduating from UVIC, Jack worked with a number of agricultural organizations including financial and general management of two provincial marketing boards. He worked closely with growers and governments to initiate and establish the BC Cranberry Research Farm, the only facility of its kind in Canada.

Cycling to work in Victoria in the 70’s and 80’s before cycling infrastructure was a bit of a challenge. A few scrapes could probably have been avoided with the benefit of a bike skills course. Now in retirement, Jack has time to support the goals and objectives of the Greater Victoria Bike to Work Society.

Secretary Mia Frankl
Saanich Bylaw Officer

Mia has worked in three Canadian municipalities and more recently connected with her bicycle as an adult. Mia feels that cycling is an important aspect of sustainable transportation and carbon offset, and has a strong interest in engaging her fellow municipal workmates to get cycling in Victoria.
