As an avid runner and cyclist, Tim has run the Boston Marathon and has climbed iconic mountains in the Alps and the Dolomites on two wheels. As a cyclist, Tim understands the important relationship between cycling and good coffee. Showcasing some of the best coffee roasters and artisan bakers from BC, Tim wants to get people walking, running, and riding to Sanctuary Cafe for great coffee, food and conversation.
