General Club Information

The Valley Spokesmen are a San Francisco Bay Area bicycle club based in Dublin California, approximately 15 miles southeast of Oakland. The club schedules both local and non-local rides. Emphasis is on road cycling, but mountain bike rides are also on the calendar. We provide a wide variety of club rides, ranging from short neighborhood tours suitable for families with children, to strenuous century-length epics. We encourage non-members to attend our club meetings and join us on any of our outings. We typically schedule several 'Newbie Rides' and rides of shorter duration each month. View our ride calendar and find a ride that is right for you!

The Valley Spokesmen Bicycle Touring Club was founded in August, 1971. Membership has grown from 81 active members in 1972 to over 650 card-carrying members presently. Most of the group are young to middle-aged adults, both married and unmarried, but member ages range from infant family members to active riders in their 80's.

We are affiliated with these organizations:

Valley Spokesmen Feather Pedals Group

Feather Pedals is a no-cost, volunteer cycling group within Valley Spokesmen that organizes conditioning rides for women preparing for Cinderella and social monthly rides. Both women and men are welcome to join all rides.
