Welcome to Northwest Cycling Club (NWCC)

Northwest Cycling Club (NWCC) is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization which promotes the social, competitive, recreational, philanthropic, and health aspects of cycling through education, club rides, and club meetings. Northwest Cycling Club was formed in November of 1986. Since then the club has grown from approximately six members to an average annual membership of over 400. We proudly have held five titles for USA Cycling’s Club of the Year.

NWCC offers events for all levels of riders and many types of riding. You will not need fancy equipment and you’ll always find friendly faces and generously offered tips and advice. To do any form of group riding you should be able to maintain an average speed of 12-14 mph for at least twenty miles (with breaks). Free training plans are available online along with advice for bike computers, fitness watches, apps for your phone and so on. Or reach out to us and we can help. We all were beginners once.

For those just starting to explore group rides or for those who want a casual pace, we recommend our Saturday Coffee Rides. Check out the Thursday night Spring Creek Greenway rides, too. For those ready to tackle something longer, and faster (maybe even a lot faster), come out to the Hockley Community Center on Wednesday mornings and/or Zube Park on Saturdays.

The July Fourth VP Ride was enjoyed by all who rode that Monday, despite the heat.  The day before the ride, our VP David Harman quickly revised the route to avoid roadwork and picked some great new roads.  A big thank you to Mrs. VP Erica, who acted as SAG driver for...

Barnyard Buddies

A big “Well Done!” to Carl Grasshoff and the gang who volunteered at the Barnyard Buddies event at Waller County Fairgrounds today, during which we all helped young people with disabilities to have a great time. There was a petting zoo, games, rides and grub. And joy.

In the photo we have, left to right, Al Pitre, Craig Angaroni, Mark Skeete, Teresa Foshee Cardamone, Tom Miller, Barbara LeBas Wu, Carl Grasshoff, Samuel Wu, Sid Trest, Robert Patin, Tim Hopper and Amy Smith, with me holding our cheque donating $500 to the leading lady of the event. Thanks also to Mark’s wife Rosemary and Carolyn Carolyn Smith Pfennig, who unfortunately both missed the photo.

It was a very worthwhile day!

Northwest Cycling Club Benefits

The Northwest Cycling Club (NWCC) was founded in 1986 and continues to be a part of the cycling community in Houston, TX. We are here to support cyclists from beginners to racers, with something for all ages!

NWCC has something for every type of cyclist, from casual riders to racers, elementary school kids to grandparents. We ride on the road, in the dirt, and everywhere in between. You’ll find us on the roads and trails in the Northwest Houston area, and on trips all over Texas and surrounding states. We are one of the largest cycling clubs in Texas.

Make Friends!

  • Saturday Group Rides by skill level
  • Weekly Group Rides – weekdays three days a week
  • Members-only social events
  • Organized / coordinated travel plans
  • Club Holiday rides

Train and Get Fit!

Frequent short rides are more effective than infrequent long sessions. If you only have three hours to spare per week you will be able to improve your fitness. To keep progressing and improving your fitness, you ideally need to be riding your bike every two to three days, even if it’s just a short trainer workout. The minimum you can get away with and still see significant fitness gains is three rides a week.

Learn Skills!

  • Rider Safety Course
  • Learn to be a ride leader
  • Learn about washing your bike, nutrition, bike maintenance and more
  • Group riding skills


NWCC Members receive discounts with club sponsors, such as NW Cycles and others!

Opportunities to Serve

  • Serve on the club board or numerous committees
  • Help organize key rides including the BlueBonnet Express and Katy Flatlands Century
  • Serve during key rides as SAG drivers, corner monitors, and at rest areas.
