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.

Amy is hosting a ride from her family’s ranch on Mount Hamilton Road on Sept. 21. We will meet at the ranch, ride up to the Lick Observatory at the top of Mount Hamilton, ride back down, and then have a barbecue at the ranch.

We meet at 9 AM at 13800 Mount Hamilton Road. The ranch driveway is on the left as you go up┬áMount Hamilton Road, about a quarter of a mile past Clayton Road. There is a small pull out at the foot of the driveway. When you zoom in the ranch is actually marked on Google Maps as the “Johnston Family Ranch”.

Bring something to grill, a dish to share, and some drinks.

Ride Schedule
