From May 2009 to the present, well over ten thousand hours of time—all unpaid—have been given by Bicycling Monterey’s founder, volunteer Mari Lynch, to create and carry out the work of this website and other Bicycling Monterey projects. Many people have voiced appreciation for this work. If you appreciate Bicycling Monterey too, be an ally for bicycling; click here.

Phone calls

Phone calls are welcome. Before calling, please read the 5 tips below.
(831) 375-6278
  1. This is a landline phone. Voice only, no text messages.
  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 U.S. 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.)
  5. It is Mari’s pleasure to speak with people from outside the U.S. too. If you’re unable to reach her immediately and your only 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 another of the many Monterey County bicycling resource people.

Submit a calendar listing

Submissions for the Master Calendar for Bicycling Monterey County are welcome. Submit your listing here.
