“Your site is really useful…It is, by far, the most comprehensive bicycle site for Monterey County…and regularly updated, which is rare.”

About Bicycling Monterey

The Bicycling Monterey website and projects are provided as a public service, a grassroots effort in collaboration with the community. As the 8th year begins, they remain an entirely volunteer gig for founder Mari Lynch, a local business owner and resident of rural Monterey County since 1981. What inspired the founding of Bicycling Monterey? Mari’s renewed commitment to her lifelong joy in biking, and desire to share that joy, and the many benefits of biking, with others.
