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.

2015 was a big year for several Diablo Cyclists. Congratulations are in order to four members for completing the 2015 Paris-Brest-Paris 1200 kilometer Randonee. Long time club members Kitty Goursolle and Don Cartwright, along with new members Matt Pendleton and Kris Jones completed this ride.

On the domestic front club member Rebecca Eckland won the 2015 Women’s Division of the California Triple Crown series. The Triple Crown involves the completion of 3 tough double century rides.

Congrats to all
