About MariLynch.com

Why is the root URL for Bicycling Monterey’s posts and pages marilynch.com/blog?

To prevent broken links, the root URL remains the original URL, marilynch.com/blog.

In May 2009, as part of Mari’s outreach also done out on the bikeways, she posted “Tips for Tourists Bicycling Monterey” on her blog. Non-bike topics continued to be included for the next few months.

In November 2009, since Mari’s blog had quickly evolved to feature almost nothing but bicycling-related content, alternate domain names were added, e.g., bicyclingmonterey.com. Domain names include bikemonterey.org, herhelmetthursdays.org, tipsfortourists.com, and more.

Is Bicycling Monterey Mari’s business?

No. Bicycling Monterey was created as a public service, and from May 1, 2009 to May 1, 2017, Mari has provided the Bicycling Monterey website and all Bicycling Monterey projects entirely as a volunteer. She has contributed more than ten thousand hours of her time over those eight years. There were no product reviews with goods or services provided to her as compensation, no paid ads, no pay-per-click, etc. The Bicycling Monterey work has been done by Mari simply as a labor of love for her county of residence since 1981, and for the planet we share.
