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 @ email@example.com or Carl @ firstname.lastname@example.org .
You may also call Troy @ 346-220-7771 or Carl @ 832-776-1576 for assistance.
TRAFFIC CONTROL WILL BE PROVIDED BY AREA LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS.
