Bicycling Monterey, a local partner of the California Bicycle Coalition, just passed its 10th anniversary. For some history, click here.
This website provides inspiration and resources for bicycling anywhere. It also serves as an Information Hub for Biking Monterey County. Bicycling Monterey’s content includes over 680 original posts and pages, including thousands of original photos.
Where to begin? One option: the 8 resource pages listed directly below. Or the bulleted list below highlighting other popular Bicycling Monterey content.

  1. Bicycling Monterey compiled a 33-section directory of Monterey County Bicycling Resources / Bike Community Leaders.
  2. Bicycling Advocacy: What you can do offers ways to be a positive changemaker on the national, state, and local level, helping to impact bicycle infrastructure, legislation, and other issues that affect people who bike. Scroll it for a photo gallery of visitors and residents who bike in Monterey County.
  3. información en español sobre las bicicletas, created in 2010, was the first compilation of Spanish-language biking resources of its kind in the USA. Besides benefiting people in other places, it was created to benefit Monterey County residents; the U.S. Census report on Monterey County reports: “Language other than English spoken at home, percent of persons age 5 years+, 2011-2015: 53.6% —and that’s mostly Spanish.
  4. Other Languages and related resources includes a sampling of biking info in a variety of languages, and a bit more en español. Also featured is info on Monterey County’s love for languages, and a Guess-Their-Country Game, which highlights people from various nations biking in the county, and other language resources on this site.
  5. An intro to bike-and-ride options, the portal to this site’s detailed bike-and-ride section. Why? Because bicycling needn’t be all or nothing. Any mile of biking beats a mile of driving. When stamina, schedule, infrastructure, or other factors aren’t conducive to biking all the way to your destination, consider bike-and-ride.
  6. Master Calendar for Bicycling Monterey County features local biking and bike-related activities, events, and meetings open to the public, including auto-feeds from local road and mountain bike clubs. To submit a calendar listing, click here.
  7. Portal page to Posters, fliers, logos, and more, including California bike law summaries and Monterey County tips, including HER Helmet Thursdays and more.
  8. Monterey County’s Open Streets features Ciclovía Salinas resources and history. It also includes a heads-up about other Open Streets locations in Monterey County; the first of those: Ciclovía Gonzales.
