Volunteers who’ve helped with this website and other Bicycling Monterey projects

Project: Website

Vid Raatior

Perhaps you’ve noticed the footer on the Bicycling Monterey site, “Empowered for Social Good by Atawe Design (now known as Raatior Design). In 2009, Vid Raatior—now Director of the Science Education & Mentorship in Latino Lives in Academia (SEMILLA) project at the University of California Santa Cruz —recognized that Mari shares his dedication to “building partnerships to empower social good for a more equitable world.Vid described the Bicycling Monterey Projects as the work of a social entrepreneur and found Bicycling Monterey worthy of his support. 

When launching Bicycling Monterey in 2009, Mari was a new user of WordPress, and Vid helped immensely. He set up a WordPress theme, whipped the content of the 20-section Tips guide into a more user-friendly format, designed the site banner, and coached her in the ways of WordPress. He shared his expertise very generously. Moreover, Vid was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. 

Project: Website and more

Work on the Bicycling Monterey website was further boosted by the generosity of Mari’s son, Nathan Dehmler. Many other Bicycling Monterey projects have also benefited greatly because of Nathan’s thoughtful support.

Project: HER Helmet Thursdays

Custom database creator

In November 2009, Mari created the HER Helmet Thursdays project and established it in Monterey County, as a public service. The project is very time and labor intensive and has been greatly helped by the creation of this database.

In January 2010, a web expert and cyclist from Santa Cruz County recognized that HER Helmet Thursdays needed room to grow.  He kindly volunteered to provide the necessary techno leg-up.  By creating a secure custom database in January 2010, free of charge, he made the project’s growth possible.  What a caring neighbor!

Whenever you refer to the HER Helmet Thursdays listings, you are benefiting from the professional expertise and chivalry of this anonymous contributor.

Below, the HER Helmet Thursdays venues map, one result of time contributed by the custom database creator.

Project: HER Helmet Thursdays

Database tech support

Who provides the essential technical support for the HER Helmet Thursdays custom database, including upgrades and other maintenance? Stephen Anderson (on Twitter, @bendycode) of Bendyworks, Racine, Wisconsin. Another geek with a heart!

Stephen is a cyclist who had visited Monterey County. As a Ruby on Rails expert, when Stephen became aware of the need for this technical support, he graciously agreed to help. Since November 2012, it is thanks to Stephen’s technical expertise and generosity (backed by extraordinary communication skills too) that the database remains available–allowing people to continue accessing the HER Helmet Thursdays map and detailed listings.

Also much appreciated is Stephen’s fellow Ruby on Rails aficionado, Jordan Peterson.  The skills of these two gentlemen are much in demand, yet by teaming up, it was possible for them to carve out time to do this pro bono work as well.

Thanks for keeping us rolling, guys!

Project: HER Helmet Thursdays

Database support

Justin Leong of Santa Clara County enjoys biking—whether alone, with friends, or with his brother or entire family. He’s also a tech-savvy young man who spent most of summer 2015 in Monterey County doing a computer-related internship. So what else did he do while he was here? Contributed volunteer hours in support of the HER Helmet Thursdays project and other Bicycling Monterey projects!

Logo creator

 

Steve E. Anderson of Velo Club Monterey

On hearing that HER Helmet Thursdays needed a logo, Steve immediately volunteered to provide one.  He delivered it promptly and in good cheer, showing once again that our local roadies often quietly serve as Knights of the Central Coast.

Translation

Special thanks to Jerry Ramos for providing oral Spanish translation services. The gracious manner and communication skills of this Monterey County teen allowed successful outreach to new HER Helmet Thursdays participants.

Bike-there tips

Although Mari wrote most bike-there tips, the following local residents helped immensely by providing detailed tips on some of the more remote locations:

  1. Aaron Magenheim
  2. Jeff Richman
  3. Chuck Martin
  4. Jan Valencia
  5. Devian Gilbert

Below: Aaron Magenheim at age 16.

At 16, Aaron had been supporting bicycling in Monterey County for 10 years, since he and his dad had helped prepare the course for the Laguna Seca Challenge, which later became the Sea Otter Classic. And ten years later, Aaron was still volunteering to help others bike in Monterey County—by contributing bike-there tips and new idea for HER Helmet Thursdays.

Project: HER Helmet Thursdays

Charter Participants

The launch of the HER Helmet Thursdays Project was only possible because of the forward-thinking Charter Participants. Of course participating businesses and organization are headed up by business owners and paid organization directors, not by volunteers. But their participation in the HER Helmet Thursdays Project is voluntary, so Bicycling Monterey wanted to give them a special shout-out here.

Project: HER Helmet Thursdays

Anniversary Celebrations

Likewise, bike shops are headed up by business owners, not volunteers. But they too get a special shout-out for voluntarily celebrating some anniversaries of the HER Helmet Thursdays Project. Click here for links to websites of those who celebrated the 5th anniversary with a full-page ad, teaming up with the Monterey County Weekly. For those who celebrated the 4th anniversary with prize drawings in their shops, click here.

Project: Monterey County Youth Center bike education program

Instructors, Coordinator, Parts/Tools Assistance

See “Teach Teens Well” for history, details, and the most current information about the Monterey County Probation Department Youth Center’s bike education program, founded by volunteer Mari Lynch. In October 2011, Mari began the initial organizing to create the Bicycle Repair and Safety Class, which launched April 2012. In 2015 Mari also launched Bike Nights. As of July 2017, both the class and Bike Nights continue.

The Youth Center bike repair instruction makes it the first high school bike tech class in Monterey County! That was only possible because of volunteer instructors. In the inaugural year there were five, and three continued on as well. All are appreciated!

Instructors

  1. Frank Henderson – instructor April 2012 to the present
  2. Luciano Rodriguez – instructor July 2012 to the present; and also class coordinator August 2014 to the present
  3. Korey Ericson – instructor April 15, 2012 through June 9, 2013
  4. Joseph Crabtree of Forest Hill Bike Shop – instructor April 2012 through June 2012
  5. Mari Lynch – various roles (founder, class coordinator, instructor) Oct 2011 to present

Parts and Tools Assistance: Another volunteer boosting the bike repair and safety class was Jim Warwick, a Salinas High School instructor and SHS mountain bike team assistant coach and advisor, who assisted Mari in sorting used parts. Gratitude also to some students in the Salinas High School construction program. Why? In May 2014, Jim and those SHS students created tool racks for use by students in Youth Center bike class. Muchas gracias!

Additional thanks: In the early years, Frank Pinto and Peter Krol took the time to become background-approved for admission to the Youth Center, in case their schedules might allow them to assist on an on-call basis. Peter was able to step in and assist on 1-2 occasions. Thanks, guys.

Community inspiration: A shout-out also to Rosemary Soto. She was an organizer of an October 26, 2011 meeting about the Youth Center, which Mari attended. It was because of that meeting that Mari decided to found the Youth Center’s bike ed program.

Project: Intergenerational Ride for

Bike Week/Bike Month

Ride escorts and other support

Mari founded in 2012 and organized annually through 2015 an annual Intergenerational Ride, in support of Monterey County Bike Week/Bike Month. As with all Bicycling Monterey projects, its success is because of community involvement!
For 2012, special thanks to Sports Center Bicycles of Seaside for providing a mobile bike mechanic for the Intergenerational Ride during Monterey County’s Bike Week celebration. Thanks also to Darius Rike of Monterey Off Road Cycling Association and League of American Bicyclists certified instructor Frank Henderson for their active support of this event.

For 2013, tip of the helmet for the complimentary mobile bike mechanic Chris Paruolo goes to Bay Bikes of Carmel and Monterey. Additional thanks for escorting children in the brief Class II and Class III areas and other rider support goes to Vera Noghera and Randy Naylor of Velo Club Monterey; Rich Buaya, Jimmy Mastrom, and Barcley Stamey from the Naval Postgraduate School Cycling Club; Steve Benes of Gears 4 Good; Roy Pina of Shoreline Outdoors, Shoreline Community Church. Further support for this event was provided by Salinas Bike Party-a courteous social bike run and Ciclovia Salinas Committee members Eduardo Huerta, Mirna Cuentas, Natalie Oliver, and friends. First Presbyterian Church of Monterey and Fine Wordworking again served as the co-hosts of the Intergenerational Ride for 2013, with special thanks going to Elaine Cole, Carol Ferrantelli, and Jackie DeHoff.

For 2014, please refer to the 3rd Annual Intergenerational Ride post for names of those helping. Special thanks to Bay Bikes for providing the services of complimentary mobile mechanic Rob Burton this year; and to Steve Benes of Gears 4 Good for being on hand as a mobile mechanic during the morning hours.

For 2015, Bay Bikes again providing the services of a complimentary mobile mechanic. For more 2015 supporters, please refer to 4th Annual Intergenerational Ride post. Special thanks to Roy Pina, Vera Noghera, Ariana Green, and Jeff Richman for extra help with facilitating this year’s ride and to Naval Postgraduate School Foundation Cycling Club for their faithful participation and ride support at this annual event.

Project: Dress-Up Challenge for Bike Week

Photo submitters (people who took the challenge!) 

Mari organized Monterey County’s first Dress-Up Challenge in support of Monterey County Bike Week 2011. This was modeled after a San Francisco Bicycle Coalition activity. In addition to individuals and organizations who contributed prizes, people volunteered their time by sending in a photo. See the photo gallery of those modeling their love for biking in Monterey County!

Project: Bike advocacy outreach

Bicycle maintenance

See the summary of Bicycling Monterey projects to learn about Mari’s various bike advocacy outreach efforts. Among these is direct outreach by bike! Helping to keep Mari’s bicycle rolling by providing bike maintenance services free of charge:

  • Jan Valencia, Velo Club Monterey Answer Man. Jan’s wrench wizardry on Mari’s trusty bike, a Giant hybrid, has made a big difference. After Mari was riding with Jan’s wife, Cath Tendler-Valencia (AKA @eyebabe), it seemed Cath thought perhaps Mari wasn’t keeping up with her due to mechanical weaknesses of her bike.  (Ha! Not. That Cath is fast!) The plus about that gracious misconception was that Cath put the bee in Jan’s ear, and in Oct 2014, and again in July 2015, Jan did a maintenance makeover on Mari’s bike. Amazing what a difference a new chain, cassette, cables, and more can make, especially when combined with a generous dose of bike love and mechanical expertise. Thanks, Jan!
  • On other occasions, Peninsula Bike Works has also supported Mari’s direct outreach by bike. Free of charge, they kindly repaired a bent rim and adjusted brakes. Thanks, Sean and Micah!

Project: Support launch of Ciclovía Salinas

Various roles

Bicycling Monterey is honored to be among community volunteers who—along with staff of various organizations—united to support the launch of the youth-led initiative Ciclovía Salinas, October 6, 2013. There are many bike community folks and others who volunteered or spread the word about Ciclovía Salinas, which was Monterey County’s first Open Streets. They included barricade volunteers and more; find them among those listed in Ciclovía Salinas Acknowledgements: Sponsors, Volunteers, Publicists, and More.

Project: Fundraising Campaign

Launchers 

Special thanks to the ten women who launched Bicycling Monterey’s first fundraising campaign in 2016 (begun 12/22/15, with the primary component being a crowdfunding campaign at https://gofundme.com/bikemonterey).

Website and Projects:

Bike safety consultant

Mari founded the Bicycling Monterey website and serves as webmaster, content creator, and more. That involves a lot of time, including careful research to ensure accurate, reliable information.

When knowledge and research time are limited, it is so helpful to be able to count on the expertise of  Frank Henderson. Frank is a League of American Bicyclists certified  instructor (“Bike League LCI”) and TAMC 2010 Golden Helmet Award winner.

Tech Angel

Eeek! Computer isn’t doing what I need it to. And by grace, an anonymous tech angel responds with just the right advice, faithfully, year after year. Whether it’s a hardware challenge or an Internet mystery, whatever is nudging this Lead Pencil Woman toward a brain-fry, it cannot win.  Because a phone call away is the Best. Help. Ever. You know who you are. Bless you!

  3. Steven Lienhard, yes, another Santa Cruz geek! You might be looking fruitlessly for a HER Helmet Thursdays detailed listing if it were not for Steve’s knowledge of a particular plugin made by Frank Bültge.  Thanks, neighbor!
  4. Frank Bültge of http://bueltge.de for creating and freely providing a WordPress search-and-replace plugin that served the HER Helmet Thursdays project. And wouldn’t you know it!–Frank is an avid bicyclist himself.

Miscellaneous support

Justin Leong of Santa Clara County contributed volunteer hours in support of the HER Helmet Thursdays project, as mentioned above. This tech-savvy guy also pitched in to help with various Bicycling Monterey website tasks, including site banner redesign, website link updates, and more. Not only is Justin smart, skilled, and reliable, he exuded kindness and helpfulness. He consistently asked if there was anything he could do to be of help, then carried out whatever was requested of him, completing the tasks with flying colors. This caring individual is also an interesting conversationalist, making every chance to connect a pleasure. We’d sure love to clone him–or keep him!

Bicycling Monterey “Street Team”

This is a grassroots effort, and those who share the news with others are making a vital contribution.  We appreciate everyone sharing the good news via such methods as:
  • telling others the old-fashioned way (which never goes out of style), by word-of-mouth
  • keeping mini-fliers in their purse, pocket, pack, or panniers so they have something at hand to pass along to folks they’re chatting withscreen-shot-2016-10-12-at-8-49-54-pm
  • sharing links via online social sites, such as Facebook and Twitter
  • displaying posters or fliers7th-anniv-her-helmet-thursdays-a-bikemontereydotorg-project

Contact Mari for tips on how to help.

Derrick Chao and Kyle Ingebretson of the San Francisco Bay Area just learned about the Bicycling Monterey resources and the HER Helmet Thursdays Project.
