Tour de Rock riders rolled into town this afternoon

Tour de Rock riders (pictured here on the Port McNeill to Sayward leg) rolled into town yesterday afternoon after starting off in Port Alice Sunday followed by stops in Port Hardy, Port McNeill and Sayward.

The tour continues to the Comox Valley today after a gala event in Campbell River raising money for cancer research. The Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock raises money for pediatric cancer research and programs for children with a history of cancer. The Tour de Rock team cycles from one end of Vancouver Island to the other, over 14 days, covering 1,000 kilometres.
