Riders from the Canadian Cancer Society's Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley team will make a number of stops in South Delta Thursday on the eighth day of their nine-day trek.
After visits to schools in Surrey and North Delta in the early part of the morning, the riders will make stops at South Park Elementary (11:05 a.m.) and Southpointe Academy (11:55 a.m.) before having lunch at Delta police headquarters.
After lunch the team will visit Ladner's Delta Secondary (1:40 p.m.), where three girls - Ashley Hughes, Mirren Smillie and Jessie Lynes - are shaving their heads to raise funds for pediatric cancer research.
Riders will finish off the South Delta portion of their odyssey with a stop at the Ladner McDonald's (2 p.m.).
Delta police constables Catherine Fiddick, Shane McLaughlin and Dave Ogilvy, and reserve constable Carlye Towne, are all taking part in the ride. Optimist reporter Jessica Kerr is the media rider.
The Tour de Valley team finishes its 800-plus-kilometre journey, which has taken riders all the way to Boston Bar and back, on Friday.
