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.

NOTE – If you had previously registered for the 2020 KFC

First and foremost, Northwest Cycling Club extends a very grateful thank you to each of you for supporting our club, and for being patient and understanding over the last couple years. With that being said, we are excited to announce that we are once again making arrangements to hold the Katy Flatland Century ride on July 17th, 2022.

If you had previously registered online for the 2020 Katy Flatland Century (KFC), your registration is active and will be applied to the 2022 KFC ride. An email will be sent out to all 2020 registrants with instructions on how to “re-register” for the 2022 KFC at no charge. The reason for the need to re-register for this event is simply due to this event having been rescheduled on two separate occasions.

As stated, you will receive an email at the email address you provided at the time of your registration, and this email will arrive on or about May 1st, 2022. Within the content of the email, you will have event registration link and a unique code linked to your email & name. In the event, you registered multiple people, then you will receive an email for each person that was registered. Simply register as before and enter the code when you get to the payment screen.

If you have any questions or problems with registration using your unique code, please email Troy @ treasurer@nwcc.bike or Carl @ kfc@nwcc.bike .

You may also call Troy @ 346-220-7771 or Carl @ 832-776-1576 for assistance.

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.

  • Saturday Group Rides by skill level
  • Weekly Group Rides – weekdays three days a week
  • Members-only social events

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.
