More than a hundred police officers will be setting off on the Cops for Cancer Tour de Coast ride Wednesday morning from Scott Creek middle school in Coquitlam.

The riders — Coquitlam RCMP constables Danick Nolet, Jennifer Goodings, Matthew Berinbaum and Michael Murray, as well as Port Moody Police Const. Jenn Ohashi — will be cycling a 900-km route over nine days covering the Sea to Sky corridor, Sunshine Coast, North Shore and throughout Metro Vancouver.

They'll be cycling back through the Tri-Cities on Tuesday, Sept. 25 on their way to Pitt Meadows.

Now celebrating its 15th year, Cops for Cancer has raised $27 million for childhood cancer research and support programs.
