Register NOW for this fun and unique TBA event !!!

The Tidewater Bicycle Association proudly presents our signature event, the 41st Annual Knotts Island Century ride, which will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

Proceeds from this event benefit TBA's advocacy, safety and education programs. Nearly $20,000 was distributed locally during 2016 for bicycle related initiatives. Thank you for your support!

We are offering four great routes this year, three of which have changed from previous years.

(Changes: the ferry English century will now depart Knotts Island on the noon ferry. The ferry metric century will use either the 10 am or noon ferry. The non-ferry routes are also different.)

Cancellation Policy:  The KI Century is a rain or shine event.  Inclement Weather/Act of God refunds will not be offered, as the majority of the registration funds will have already been spent on event planning such as City permits, port-a-john rentals, facility rentals, electronic sign boards, etc., and these costs cannot be recovered to refund to you.  This is standard policy for nearly all bicycle events and is non-negotiable.  Cancellations will be accepted until no later than midnight on Friday, April 15th.  Contact: treasurer@tbarides.org.
