Tips for Bicycling Monterey County:
A 20-Section Guide
Tips for Bicycling Monterey County
This 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.
Since its launch in 2009, Bicycling Monterey content is made available to everyone, without pay wall. It is provided as a courtesy to Monterey County’s visitors (estimated to be 8.4 million people annually), our approximately 422,000 residents, and others, for personal use. For all other use, refer to the copyright information page.
Included in the guide are links to Bicycling Monterey’s original content–over 450 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.
Please consider making a contribution to help maintain and expand these resources. A contribution in any amount is meaningful and appreciated.
