The Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock riders rolled into Sidney Oct. 4.

The 2012 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team rolled into Sidney Oct. 4 to a warm welcome from residents and supporters.

The team made their first stop just after 2 p.m. at Stantec Sidney to attend the engineering firm’s barbecue and fundraiser. Stantec has hosted the event for the last three years to help raise funds for the cause. Riders were treated to a spread provided by different restaurants and were presented cheques from Stantec and several other business in the West Sidney area.

The riders left West Sidney and headed to the Mary Winspear Centre where they met with dozens of fellow cyclers who rode with them down Beacon Avenue in a show of support. The riders and support team then gathered in Beacon Park for a celebration, an impromptu head shave and several more cheque presentations including ones from Black Press, Parkland Secondary School and the Victoria Airport Authority.

The riders wrapped up their tour that began Sept. 23 in Port Alice on Oct. 5 in downtown Victoria at Centennial Square.
