The Montcross Area Chamber is hosting our first Virtual Bike Ride sponsored by South Main Cycles and the City of Belmont. We are encouraging you to enjoy yourselves outdoors whether that is in our area or while you are on vacation for the Memorial Day Holiday. Like all businesses and non-profit organizations, the Montcross Area Chamber of Commerce is suffering severe financial impacts from the coronavirus pandemic and economic downturn. Traditional spring fundraisers have been cancelled or postponed. This Memorial Week virtual bike ride is a way to encourage residents to get outdoors, exercise, have fun and support the Chamber in its mission to help more than 540 other local businesses and organizations.
