Contributors of 2016 rewards for fundraising campaign

Optional rewards for financial contributors were provided February 26 through December 31, 2016 as part of Bicycling Monterey’s first fundraising campaign. The fundraiser was launched by ten women and included a crowdfunding campaign, where you are still welcome to contribute, and where you can read the story about why they launched the campaign. For other ways to make a financial contribution, and for FAQs, click here.

Scroll down this page for the list of the 95 businesses that provided the optional rewards.
  • On December 22, 2015, ten women launched Bicycling Monterey’s first fundraising campaign, including crowdfunding at https://gofundme.com/bikemonterey.
  • On February 26, 2016, an optional rewards program for contributors was added on the Go Fund Me platform.
  • On April 13, 2016, due to the Go Fund Me rewards system’s tech glitches and limitations, the rewards were moved to the Bicycling Monterey website.
  • December 31, 2016 was the end-date for Bicycling Monterey’s rewards program. Thank you to those who provided rewards.
  • For 2017, there is not another rewards program, simply because soliciting, documenting, promoting, and distributing the rewards required far too many additional volunteer hours of Bicycling Monterey’s founder to be worthwhile. Nonetheless, we appreciate all of the following for helping us give it a try.

Thank you to all reward providers!

  • Bicycling Monterey’s rewards program was from February 26, 2016 to December 31, 2016.
  • It is not planned to have a Bicycling Monterey rewards program again in 2017, simply because of the large amount of additional volunteer hours it required of Mari. (If anyone wants to volunteer to do the many tasks of a Bicycling Monterey rewards program in the future, contact Mari.)
  • Some rewards are redeemable at any U.S. location. Many are redeemable only in the Monterey Bay region (if so, that local city is listed with the reward).
  • Rewards can be mailed anywhere in the U.S.
  • Gift certificates, gift cards, and other rewards have no cash value, so change is not given.
  • Gift certificates (paper) cannot be used on more than one visit, unless specified as allowable.
  • Gift cards (plastic) can be used on more than one visit, unless specified as one-time use.
  • Gratuity/tip is not included with reward, even if that is not specified. (This applies to rewards where a gratuity/tip is customary, such as restaurants.)
  • Sales tax is normally not included, even if that is not specified.
