    40th Annual KNOTTS ISLAND CENTURY

    ***Register NOW thru May 4th before it's too late.  Walk-up registration will not be permitted.

    The Tidewater Bicycle Association proudly presents our signature event, the 40th Annual Knotts Island Century ride.  One of the ride’s highlights is that the traditional English and Metric Century routes both cross the Currituck Sound on the North Carolina State Ferry, from opposite sides.

    Registration includes SAG support, rest stops, snacks, sports drinks, cue sheets and marked routes.  This year's post-ride meal will be provided by Gourmet Gang, and is available for (optional) purchase during registration.  An optional 40th Anniversary Knotts Island commemorative T-Shirt may also be ordered at the time of registration.  (TBA members: please login to register at the discounted member rate)

    · Great opportunity for a ride with family and friends
    · Great Training Ride for upcoming Special Events such
      as the MS150.
    · Ride with a Group, even if you are alone!
    · Funds raised by the KI Century help further TBA's education
      and advocacy efforts. T
    hank you for your support!

     

    Five Route Options

    ** TWO FERRY ROUTES **
    These riders will pass each other at the Knotts Island Ferry landing.  Both routes will bike through the Mackay Island National Wildlife Refuge on NC route 615 – a beautiful stretch of road with wildlife and scenery – remember to enjoy the view!

    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: editor@tbarides.org.
