Tips for Tourists/Locals
Tips for Bicycling Monterey County
Welcome to Tips for Bicycling Monterey County, a 20-section guide.
The Tips guide and the Bicycling Monterey website were created by Mari Lynch, a county resident since 1981. The work was honored with a Transportation Excellence Award from the Transportation Agency for Monterey County.
Now in its fifth year, Bicycling Monterey content is made available to everyone, without pay wall. This site is provided as a courtesy to Monterey County’s visitors (estimated to be 8.4 million people annually), our county’s approximately 422,000 residents, and others, for personal use.
For all other use, please refer to to the copyright information page.
Included in the guide are links to Bicycling Monterey’s original content–over 400 posts and pages published on this site–along with links to other carefully selected resources. There are no paid links on this site; all information is provided as a public service.

As the 20-section guide’s Overview and Index indicate, links in the guide lead you to a large volume of Bicycling Monterey content, along with some links to other resources.
A list of bicycle shops, services, clubs, and resources and a compilation of Spanish language bicycling resources are also provided at Bicycling Monterey.
Also on this site are tips on biking to the beach, to camping sites, to wineries; tips specific to biking various local communities, e.g., Carmel, Castroville, Greenfield, Pebble Beach, Salinas, Seaside; and biking to special events like the Monterey Jazz Festival.
This site is home of the discounts-for-bicyclists project, HER Helmet Thursdays. Males and females get discounts at Hotels, Educational and Entertainment venues, Restaurants, and related places on Thursdays year-round. Why? To encourage people to help HER, Mother Earth, by biking.
