Houston RCMP is running a bike and bail to raise money for Cops For Cancer Tour De North.

The event will be held on Tuesday (Aug 31) at 8 a.m and will take place at the Houston Detachment Parking lot.

Individuals are able to be nominated and will be asked to pedal on a stationary bike or get lifted into the air on a boom lift until they raise their bail.

Cst. Harry Dhaliwal explained what the proceeds will go towards.
