Vale John Harvey

I respectfully advise on behalf of John Harvey’s family that John passed away, peacefully, on 16 October 2018. John was a founding member and long-serving committee member of the ACTVCC. He and his wife Elaine owned and operated Canberra Cycles in Fyshwick for many years. John was also ahead of his time in instigating the Fitzs Challenge in the late 1980’s, well before such one-day events became popular. John ran and generously sponsored this event for many years until it grew too big for him and his merry band of helpers to manage and Pedal Power was encouraged to take it over. The Fitzs Challenge endures as one of Canberra’s premier cycling events.

The funeral service for John will held at the Yass Railway Museum, 8 Crago St. Yass on Friday 26 October at 11am, followed by interment in Yass Lawn Cemetery.
