Meet The BoD Q+A: Harold Kuschnik, Secretary

Hi hi Everyone! Yes, it’s true, we are back with another instalment of Meet The BoD. Today we chat with Harold Kuschnik, our Secretary who keeps some pretty great Meeting Minutes, making sure they are accurate and reflective of not only the discussion, but the tone of our gatherings. Not an easy task! As you will learn below, Harold has a long history with the sport of cycling as well running and Tri. Harold took 1st in his AG at this year’s Frigid 10K, he’s one speedy fellow! Read on to learn more about Harold:

1. How many years have you been cycling?

I’ve biked on & off for around 45 years. Its been an evolution of sorts – commuter for school & work (Brockville, Toronto, St. Catherines & Port Hope), and triathlon (since 1990) & more recently club riding/racing (about 12 years with CCC).

2.What is a highlight from your years of cycling?

Actually 2 highlights, both In 2017: I won the CCC Racer of Year award for most improved TT time, and also competed for Team Canada at the ITU World Triathlon Championships in Rotterdam.

3. What do you like best about being part of this cycling club?

The camaraderie & support whether someone is a newbie or veteran. There’s always someone to chat with, share some good ideas with, and who is motivational for improvements in one’s riding (ie mentoring & coaching).

4.Any goals for the 2020 Cycling Season?

To make the best out of a challenging year. Being Secretary gives me a chance to give back, learn more about the sport & keep my admin skills up to speed.

5.Roadie or Off Roadie?


6.Are you Team Short Socks or Team High Socks?

The colder the weather the higher the sock, the warmer the weather …

7.Espresso or Americano?

Americano SVP.

8.What club rides can we find you on?

Tue TT & Wed Group Ride, though I’m on an extended hiatus – no club riding due to injury in 2019.

Thanks for sharing Harold! Hope to see you back out group riding next season!
