Tour de Rock riders in Chemainus Monday morning

The Tour de Rock is still going again this year despite the pandemic with a stop in Chemainus Monday.

The traditional breakfast at the Chemainus Legion Hall isn’t happening for the second straight year, but people can still greet the riders there at 9:27 a.m.

After nearly a half hour stop, they then head to the Sawmill Taphouse & Grill at 9:55 and over to the 49th Parallel Grocery in Chemainus Village Square at 10:25 before heading to Ladysmith.

The riders actually start the day at a location in Nanaimo and ride to Harmac Pacific to receive a large donation.

After returning to the starting location, they’ll drive their own vehicles back to James Place in Ladysmith. They’ll start the ride again there to Chemainus and back to several Ladysmith stops for donations.

The six riders on the Monday leg of the Tour are all from the Chemainus/Ladysmith/Nanaimo areas, including: Steve Smith, Cydney MacNeill, Shane Coubrough, Dave Giles, Ashley Cockle and Mike Sherman.
