About / Contribute


Bicycling Monterey, founded 2009, includes this website and other Bicycling Monterey projects. For people who bike anywhere, the site provides resources and inspiration. It also serves as an Information Hub for Biking Monterey County.
Bicycling Monterey is valued by a wide mix of people, is a local ally of the California Bicycle Coalition, and is linked by the League of American Bicyclists and other organizations. Renowned for accurate, reliable information, Bicycling Monterey features over 600 web pages of original content, including thousands of original photos. It has been provided as a public service for personal use.
The Bicycling Monterey site and projects are a grassroots effort. The founder is an unpaid volunteer who has donated well over 10,000 hours from 2009-2017. Contributions in any amount are meaningful and appreciated. For ways to support this award-winning work, scroll down.

As reported in “The Change Agent” in the Monterey County Weekly’s first special bike issue in 2011: “What started as [Mari Lynch’s] personal blog two years ago quickly evolved into an umbrella website for all things two-wheeled in Monterey County.” To prevent broken links, the root URL for posts and pages remains the original URL, marilynch.com/blog. You can also reach this site via bikemonterey.org and alternate URLs, e.g., bicyclingmonterey.com and others.

As of the start of 2018, there is not yet an official bicycling coalition for Monterey County, or for the Monterey Bay Tri-County Region. To help fill that gap, Bicycling Monterey provides a 33-section directory of Monterey County Bicycling Resources / Bike Community Leaders.
