It’s a big day for the Tour de Rock.

The riders are crossing from the mid-Island to Port Alberni, with a week to go before the Tour wraps up in Victoria on October 2nd.

Juice FM’s Hilary Eastmure is this year’s media rider, and she’s been meeting a lot of the kids the Tour is helping by raising money for Camp Goodtimes and Canadian Cancer Society.

The riders will be in the Cowichan Valley next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Here’s a quick run-down of their public events.  There are more details in our events update.
