Bicycling Monterey provides resources and inspiration for people who bike anywhere and also serves as an Information Hub for Biking Monterey County. 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. This site has been provided as a public service for personal useContributions in any amount are meaningful and appreciated.
As of April 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.
