     Join Tidewater Bicycle Association for the 2017 Edition
    of our annual TBA Chili Ride at Big Ugly Brewing

    REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR ALL ACTIVE TBA MEMBERS!!!!  (registration will be open to ALL others beginning 2/27)

    Come join your fellow cyclists for an all-paces ride in rural Chesapeake, with four different pace/distance options ranging from 16–34 miles.  Helmets required!  See below for links to Cue Sheets and Route Maps for each of the available routes.  *Copies of these cue sheets will be provided at ride check-in.

    The rides are FREE – those wishing only to ride but not stay for the post-ride chili lunch do NOT need to register.

    After the ride, registered riders may enjoy an assortment of chili and non-alcoholic refreshments provided by TBA; Big Ugly Brewing will also have a variety of tasty beer selections available for purchase.  We hope you'll come out and join us for this very popular annual tradition!

    -  Riders preparing to board the KI Ferry (2014)  -

    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.
