The streets of White Rock and Surrey will be abuzz with activity Friday (Sept. 24), as cyclists in the 2021 Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley pay a visit.

“Everyone in the community is invited to come cheer on our riders!” a news release states.

Those riders – close to two dozen in all – include White Rock RCMP Const. Emma Dyer, as well as Surrey RCMP Consts. Hwan Lee, Martine Bembenek, Trish Douglas and Leandre Melançon.
