Welcome. Bicycling Monterey, founded 2009, is an award-winning grassroots effort. Scroll down for ways to support this work.
Among Bicycling Monterey’s bike advocacy projects is this website, featuring over 660 web pages of original content, including thousands of original photos. Valued by a wide mix of people, Bicycling Monterey is renowned for accurate, reliable information.
Bicycling Monterey provides resources and inspiration for people who bike anywhere and also serves as an Information Hub for Biking Monterey County. As 2019 begins, there is not yet an official bicycling coalition for Monterey County, or for the Monterey Bay Tri-County Region. Since 2009, Bicycling Monterey helps fill that gap, including with its 33-section directory of Monterey County Bicycling Resources / Bike Community Leaders. How else does a place become more welcoming for people who bike? Click here
A local ally of the California Bicycle Coalition, Bicycling Monterey collaborates on regional, state, national, and international advocacy efforts and is linked by the League of American Bicyclists and other organizations.

  • As reported by Kera Abraham in “The Change Agent” in the Monterey County Weekly’s first special bike issue in 2011: “What started as [Mari’s] personal blog two years ago quickly evolved into an umbrella website for all things two-wheeled in Monterey County.”
Since 2009—and still the case as 2019 begins—Bicycling Monterey’s founder is an unpaid volunteer who has donated well over 12,000 hours to this work.
