Motorists on the Sunshine Coast may encounter cyclists taking part in an event Thursday and Friday.

The 20th annual Tour de Coast is underway.

Each year, police ride to raise money support cancer patients.

Day-2 of the Tour de Coast sees the riders stop by the Sechelt RCMP headquarters in the afternoon.

On Day-3 they will stop at the Powell River RCMP detachment around noon.

The 8-hundred kilometer tour began Wednesday in Vancouver.

Thursday and Friday, the riders are on the Sunshine Coast, then they ride from Squamish to Whistler, before returning to the Lower Mainland.

This year’s goal is to raise 625-thousand dollars.
