Diablo Cyclists on Alhambra Valley Road

Located 30 miles east of San Francisco in Walnut Creek, California, the Diablo Cyclists is a recreational road, touring and off road bicycle club. We are focused on providing cyclists of all levels an opportunity to ride, train and socialize with other bicycle enthusiasts. Our emphasis is more on the fitness, skill building, and social aspects of bicycling and less on racing. Please come out on one of our rides and get to know the friendly members of the Diablo Cyclists.

With Daylight Saving Time we will resume the Wednesday evening Mount Diablo rides. We ride up Northgate Road to the junction ranger station. We usually smooze for a while at the junction and then ride back down Northgate, or go down Southgate and back on Danville Boulevard. Sometimes a few will go to the summit. There are two starting points: Heather Farms park, or the Mormon church on Northgate, one block from Castle Rock. The Heather Farms riders start first and swing by the church 15 minutes later.

The rides resume on March 11. The starting time depends on how much daylight we have. The schedule is as follows:

Months Heather Farm Mormon Church
March & April 4:30 4:45
May through August 5:15 5:30
September 4:45 5:00
October 4:30 4:45

Ride Schedule

See the ride schedule page for more details. All rides leave at 9:00AM from Heather Farm Park in Walnut Creek unless otherwise noted. Meet at the north end of the park near the restrooms at the baseball field parking area.
