Tour de Rock riders are raising funds at the Goldstream Station Market

In advance of their big ride down Vancouver Island, three military police riders and two West Shore RCMP auxiliary members are getting in some riding time at the Goldstream Station Market.

In place, that is.

DND Military Police Capt. Pam Harris, a resident of Langford, Leading Seaman Rodney Carper, who’s from Colwood, and Maj. Michael Lemire will take turns riding at various Saturday and evening markets, along with auxiliary constables Nick Brame and Derek Brand.

Harris says it’s a good opportunity for the riders to get out into their community and let people know more about the Tour de Rock and its goals.

“It’s an interesting mix,” she says of the team of riders, who represent police departments and RCMP detachments all across Vancouver Island. “Being military, we don’t necessarily fit into one city (like the others). We’re trying to make sure we get out there.”

Having appeared at Wednesday’s evening market, the MPs or auxiliaries will be on site at Veteran’s Memorial Park again July 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., July 29 from 5 to 8 p.m., then Aug. 26 (5-8 p.m.) and 29 (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). They will be accepting donations and selling Tour de Rock gear. Proceeds go toward helping families with a member battling childhood cancer.
