Info & Registration
Hosted by the Valley Spokesmen Bicycle Club
After hosting the Mount Diablo Challenge for many years, Save Mount Diablo asked the Valley Spokesmen to take over the helm in 2017. The Valley Spokesmen are seeking to increase participation in the Mount Diablo Challenge by appealing to the broader cycling community, with an emphasis on family participation.
The Valley Spokesmen intend to keep up the tradition of giving back to the community, both by donating proceeds from this event to community nonprofit organizations and through their continued encouragement of local cycling events.
Benefitting Save Mount Diablo
The Mount Diablo Challenge continues to benefit Save Mount Diablo through donations made by event participants during registration.
