With jerseys from Different Spokes adorning the back wall during its celebratory dinner September 18 at Il Casaro Pizzeria on Church Street, gay District 8 Supervisor Rafael Mandelman presents a Board of Supervisors proclamation honoring the 40 years of the cycling club. Different Spokes is best known for its old AIDS Bike-A-Thon fundraiser that the club started in 1985 and went through 1994. Club members also observed the anniversary with a 25-mile bike ride September 17 approximating the bike-a-thon route.
