Mock Tour stops in Duncan for lunch Aug. 17

Cowichan Valley residents are invited to join in a fundraising lunch at Just Jakes when the Tour de Rock Mock Tour will hit town Sunday, Aug. 17.

From noon to 1:30 p.m. the Tour de Rock team will be at the Duncan restaurant, taking a break before they head back to Nanaimo, following a morning of cycling from Nanaimo to Duncan.

"We are excited to be having Mock Tour in Cowichan and hope the community will come out to see this year’s Tour de Rock team," said Denise Smith.

Tour de Rock sees police officers cycle the length of Vancouver Island to raise money for kids with cancer.

This year’s Tour de Rock includes 20 police officers, three members of the media and a special guest, Reynolds Secondary Vice Principal Dean Norris-Jones. The team has been training together since the beginning of March to take part in the Cops for Cancer team. Tour sets off on Sept. 20 and concludes Oct. 3. "Tour de Rock is an amazing event that energizes communities right across Vancouver Island and we’re thrilled to be kicking off Tour in Cowichan later this month," added Smith. "The event is by donation and we hope everyone will come out to show their support."
