The 21 riders of the Tour de Rock Cops for Cancer team rolled into Ladysmith Monday, Sept. 28. After a pit stop at Tim Hortons the cyclists were piped up First Avenue to the Ladysmith & District Credit Union, where they participated in some official ceremonies and mingled with the public.
Then they headed down the hill,and after a brief stop at the Fox & Hounds Pub, pressed on to the Chemainus Best Western. They were scheduled to be back in Ladysmith that evening for a Red Serge Dinner at the Eagles Hall.
Tuesday morning, they were to breakfast at the Chemainus Royal Canadian Legion, then stop in for a visit at Chemainus Elementary School, before heading on to Duncan, the next stop on their tip-to-tip ride of Vancouver Island, raising funds in the fight against cancer.
