Different Spokes is the San Francisco Bay Area’s recreational bicycling club for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community. Founded in 1982, the club is open to all members of the LGBT community and its friends who have a shared interest in bicycling.

We offer a variety of cycling rides and social events throughout the year.

The club currently has 82 members, 9% of them are female. The annual membership fee includes the ability to set up your own rides on the calendar, an online subscription to the club's Yahoo!Group and other benefits, such as discounts at many bike shops.

Membership is not necessary for participation in any club ride. To have a better idea of what is going on at Different Spokes, check out our blog or our photo gallery.

Helmets are required for all club rides. Addresses and telephone numbers are used solely for club purposes and are not available to other sources. If you have any questions about the club, call any member of the board.
