2024 Golden Spoke Awardees Announced

Not all heroes wear capes. Or can leap tall buildings in a single bound. Instead, some wear colorful helmets and get around on bicycles.

SCBC will honor the local bicycle rock stars whose heroic efforts further our mission to make bicycling safe and accessible to everyone.

The Golden Spoke Awards Gala will be held Saturday, June 8 (5:00 to 8:00 p.m.) at SOMO Village Event Center in Rohnert Park. The awards will include:
