Donations for Jim Duncan Memorial Bench

During the Jim Duncan Celebration of Life get together on August 13, it was announced that a bench in the honor Jim Duncan's contributions to the VSBC and VSRT would be purchased and installed near the Junction on Mt Diablo. Both the VSBC and VSRT have committed to supporting the acquisition and installation. A number of members have expressed a desire to support this effort through a one-time personal donation. The form below can be used to submit your donation using your credit card or you can send a check to VSBC, P.O. Box 2630, Dublin, CA 94568

General Club Information

The Valley Spokesmen is 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 Club was founded in August, 1971. Membership has grown from 81 active members in 1972 to ~500 card-carrying members presently. Most of the group are young to middle-aged adults, both married and single, but member ages range from infant family members to active riders in their 80's.
