California Specialty Bike License Plates

Program details and order information at calbikeplate.com

The California Department of Public Health and Friends of the California Bike Plate have launched a new “Bike for a Healthy California” Special Interest License Plate.

The Department of Motor Vehicles will begin the process of creating the program to issue the California bicycle license plates upon receipt of 7,500 pre-paid applications.

If members of a bike club, team or employees of a business buy 60 license plates, the group’s logo will be placed in the top banner space of calbikeplate.com as a “Metric” supporter. Buying 100 plates gets a “Century” supporter designation. In addition, the group will receive a “Bike Plate Silver or Gold Medal icon”.

2021 Membership are open!

Family and Individual Memberships for new members and renewals are open. In response to COVID-19 limitations on club activities, membership dues will be reduced for next year.  We are optimistic that limited club cycling activities will be offered next year contingent on Health Department regulations.

The Valley Spokesmen are a welcoming group of cyclists that encourage riders of all levels to join our group rides. There are a variety of rides for different levels of riding. Some of our rides are listed on the ride calendar as Beginner Friendly, while others are listed as Advanced; choose a ride at a level that you feel comfortable with.

General Club Information

The Valley Spokesmen is a San Francisco Bay Area bicycle club based in Dublin California, approximately 15 miles southeast of Oakland. The club schedules both local and non-local rides. Emphasis is on road cycling, but mountain bike rides are also on the calendar. We provide a wide variety of club rides, ranging from short neighborhood tours suitable for families with children, to strenuous century-length epics. We encourage non-members to attend our club meetings and join us on any of our outings. We typically schedule several 'Newbie Rides' and rides of shorter duration each month. View our ride calendar and find a ride that is right for you!

The Valley Spokesmen Bicycle Club was founded in August, 1971. Membership has grown from 81 active members in 1972 to over 500 card-carrying members presently. Most of the group are young to middle-aged adults, both married and single, but member ages range from infant family members to active riders in their 80's.
