Membership is not required to join the Diablo Cyclists on a ride. If you decide to ride with us on a regular basis, please help support the Club by joining. Membership dues pay for this website as well as other Club expenses.

We are a fairly informal group, basically you just show up at the ride start and join us for a ride. If you are new to riding with a group, you may want to start out on one of our “Club coffee and pastry” rides (first and third Sunday of each month) to get a feel for the pace and dynamics of the Club. We ride from Heather Farm Park to Bagel Street Cafe in Danville and then the group usually splits up with options for longer or shorter routes.

All Club rides are posted on this website. Saturday rides are generally more challenging than Sunday rides. Also, on Wednesday evenings in the spring and summer, the Club rides up Mount Diablo to the junction from the Northgate side.
If you are new to riding in a group please read this helpful article about pace-line riding skills.
