Bicycling Monterey was founded in 2009 by Mari Lynch. The Bicycling Monterey website and other Bicycling Monterey projects have been provided by Mari as an unpaid volunteer who has given well over ten thousand hours to this work from May 1, 2009 – May 1, 2017. Many people express appreciation for the site and projects. Such comments are heartwarming. If you appreciate the Bicycling Monterey work too, you may wish to make a contribution. Thank you for your consideration and support.

Phone calls

Phone calls are welcome. Before calling, please read the 5 tips below. 
  1. This is a landline phone. Voice only, no text messages. Call (831) 375-6278.
  2. You are welcome to phone any day or hour that is convenient for you.
  3. If Mari is unable to pick up your call, please leave a voice message and a callback number with a United States area code. She will be happy to return your call at her earliest opportunity.
  4. If you do not receive a callback, perhaps your callback number could not be understood, so please feel free to call again. (Especially if you are calling from a cell phone, sometimes poor reception means a message cannot be understood.) Also, make sure your voice-mail box is set up to receive messages.
  5. It is Mari’s pleasure to speak with people from outside the United States too. If you’re unable to reach her immediately and your callback number has a non-U.S. area code, alternatives are: (a) try calling her again; or (b) if you have a general question about bicycling in Monterey County, contact someone else from Bicycling Monterey’s directory of Monterey County bicycling resources.
