The second annual Cycling4Diversity started Tuesday morning at 8 a.m. with a replanting of a vandalized tree at Griner Park.

A team of riders, lead by Mission’s Ken Herar, gathered at the Cherry Avenue park for the ceremony, which also drew MP Randy Kamp, and Mission Mayor Ted Adlem.

The trip will see the cadre stop at 40 venues in nine cities, ending in Victoria at the B.C. Legislature on May 25.

There are seven core riders who will do the entire journey, and a number of others who will join the ride in their respective cities and do a portion.

You can follow the team’s trip through Facebook. Search for the Cycling4Diversity page.
