Tour de Rock rolls through Port Hardy

The bikers made one of their first stops in Port Hardy. They're in the midst of an epic journey to the bottom of Vancouver Island

The Tour de Rock riders arrived in Port Hardy at 11:30 a.m. after making their way from Port Alice Sunday. Mother Nature decided to clear the skies and offer sunshine for the event. The group stayed for about one and a half hours before heading to Port McNeill. While in Port Hardy, the riders had the opportunity to meet 14-year-old Myles Janse and his family. Myles was presented with a Tour de Rock t-shirt and hat and made a junior rider. A healing dance was also performed by Kwakiutl First Nations. Myles’ sister Lucinda had her hair cut and donated it to be made into a wig for a cancer patient.
