The Tidewater Bicycle Association proudly presents its signature event, the 37th Annual Knotts Island Century ride. One of the ride’s highlights is that the English and Metric Century both cross the Currituck Sound on the North Carolina State Ferry, from opposite sides.

A new route has been added! Look for the "English Century - No Ferry Option" below!

This year's registration includes an event logo’d pair of socks, SAG support, tasty food/rest stops, sports drinks, cue sheets, and well-marked routes. Again this year the TBA C.L.A.M.S. sponsored cookie stop is back! Also included is a post ride meal for each rider and volunteer.

· Great opportunity for a ride with family and friends

· Great Training Ride for Upcoming Special Events such as the MS150, Tour de Cure, and breakaway rides

· Ride with a Group, even if you are alone!

· Funds raised by the KI Century help further TBA's education and advocacy efforts. Thank you for your support!

Online registration (only) is open from now until May 15, 2013. Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee your choice of sock size after April 5, 2013. Also, ferry capacity is limited to 100 cyclists per ferry - so register on-line early!

Book by March 31st at last year's prices:

TBA Member: $35 through Mar. 31st/ $45 after

Non TBA Member: $45 through Mar. 31st/$55 after

The METRIC CENTURY (67 MILES)

The metric century riders will bike 33 miles directly to Knotts Island and take the 10:00 a.m. or 12:00 noon ferry to Currituck, North Carolina. Upon landing approximately an hour later they will bike 33 miles back to Chesapeake through Currituck and Camden counties and home to the Ruritan Club.

The English & Metric riders will pass each other at the Knotts Island Ferry landing. Both English and Metric Centuries will bike through the Mackay Island National Wildlife Refuge on NC route 615 – a beautiful stretch of road with wildlife and scenery on both sides of the road – remember to enjoy the view!
