Mount Diablo Challenge update

The Mount Diablo Challenge is scheduled for Sunday, October 4, 2020 this year.  There are many unknowns with guessing what the coronavirus pandemic will look like by October.  One thing clear is that we will only hold this event if it is safe to do so for our registrants and volunteers and of course when permitted by our government agencies.  Therefore, the new opening date for registration is now August 1.

If you would like to be notified of any changes with this schedule and/or be reminded of when registration opens, please visit the website and leave your contact information on the form provided.

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 over 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.
