The Katy Flatland Century is promoted and sponsored by Northwest Cycling Club. It is one of two rides that we organize each year to promote cycling in the greater Houston area. The proceeds from this ride go in various directions, are predominantly cycling related, and are naturally subject to the profitability of the ride.
Boy Scouts in our area use this ride as a major fundraiser. We budget an amount for them each year and if the ride turns out more profitable, we increase the donation to them. The troop has volunteers, scouts and parents, manning our rest stops and start/finish area.
Northwest Cycling Club supports the following organizations for 2022:
The Spina Bifida SB-250
Boys and Girls Country
Houston Food Bank
Major Taylor – Houston Cycling Club
Hempstead High School Sponsorship
Local MTB Trails Preservation
Waller County Sheriff Office
Girl Scouts (we may also have them help us with rides)
In addition to the above, NWCC sponsors weekly rides, open to not just club members but all cyclists – new and old – beginner to advanced. On a typical, good-weather day, it is not uncommon to see over 200 cyclists show up for our Saturday rides. Throughout the year, NWCC also organizes cycling educational classes and skills clinics and, of course, a host of other cycling related activities.
So, as you can see, NWCC is all about giving back to the cycling community and for the advancement and education of cycling in general – from local to state and nationwide. It’s the funds from our annual Katy Flatland Century and Bluebonnet Express events that allow us to do these things.
Northwest Cycling Club (NWCC) is a tax exempt Sec 501- 3C organization.
NWCC Supports Local Boy Scounts
The NWCC donated $1667.00 to Boy Scout Troop 219 for their help with the 2022 Katy Flatland Century (KFC). The scouts and their leaders volunteered their help by manning several rest stops along the ride.
Thanks to all of you who support the club, enabling us to carry out this charitable work.
