About / Support

The annual Giving Tuesday is December 3, 2019—but you don’t need to wait until then to help! For ways to support the Bicycling Monterey work, and to see who has already helped, scroll down to the green section.

Bicycling Monterey provides resources and inspiration for people who bike anywhere and serves as an Information Hub for Biking Monterey County. Bicycling Monterey includes numerous bike advocacy projects

Bicycling Monterey helps reduce carbon emissions, improve public health and safety, strengthen communities, and more, including simply helps people have more fun! See what people say about the Bicycling Monterey work.

Bicycling Monterey is a local partner of the California Bicycle Coalition and collaborates on local, regional, state, national, and international bicycling advocacy efforts. Founded in 2009 by a Monterey County volunteer as a public service, Bicycling Monterey has completed over a decade of bicycling advocacy

There is not yet an official bicycling coalition for Monterey County, or for the Monterey Bay Tri-County Region, as of the end of 2019. Since 2009 Bicycling Monterey helps fill that gap, including with its 33-section directory of Monterey County Bicycling Resources / Bike Community Leaders.
