Renowned for accurate, reliable information, this award-winning site is appreciated by diverse people. It features over 575 web pages of original content, including thousands of original photos. Since May 2009, Bicycling Monterey’s founder has donated well over 10,000 hours of her time to this website and other Bicycling Monterey projects.

As reported by Kera Abraham in the Monterey County Weekly’s first special bike issue, in 2011: “What started as Dehmler’s [Mari Lynch Dehmler’s] personal blog two years ago quickly evolved into an umbrella website for all things two-wheeled in Monterey County.” Accessible via bikemonterey.org and other URLs, e.g., bicyclingmonterey.com and marilynch.com/blog, this site has been provided as a public service for personal use, no paywall. To learn more about the Bicycling Monterey work, see About.

Consider also setting up an automatic monthly contribution to help support this work; see FAQs.

Bicycling Monterey is pleased to be a local ally of the California Bicycle Coalition.
