Virginia Cycling Event – Mathews County

The 2016 Tour de Chesapeake will go on, rain or shine.  There is no rain date.  If storms occur, we recommend taking cover.  We are still holding on to the hope that the weatherman may have gotten it wrong.  If not, come anyway… enjoy all of the other activities and food that will be offered!  There’s still plenty of fun to be had!  Keep in mind, signage will remain in place through Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
