  6. Comments are typically posted within 48 hours.
  7.  If a comment does not get posted, please let me know.  Chances are it got caught in the spam filter.

    I’ve got a beef about biking! *%@#^!
    • On January 27, 2012, I noted this statement by Erik Schmidt of Santa Cruz:  “The number of blogs with ‘rants’ in the title is a testament to the fact that on the Internet, rants are not only accepted, but encouraged. Where else but on the Internet is it a weird badge of honor to be someone who rants?” 
    • Erik’s statement reflects the values of the Bicycling Monterey website. If your comment addresses a challenge, keeping the tone positive is requested.  
    Bicycling Monterey is a place to share the joys of biking and to offer solutions to challenges, helping to build a more bike-friendly world.
Thank you.
