Win free tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for Bike Month

Monterey Bay Region cyclists: For National Bike Month, enter to win a pair of tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a gift card for your Local Bike Shop, or dinner for two at Sticks Restaurant in Pebble Beach. But first, a word from the sponsor of this giveaway.


Boardwalk Cycletrack

Cycletracks Monterey is a project of the Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG) to track utilitarian bike rides in the Monterey Bay Region for transportation planning purposes. This agency decides how to divvy federal and state transportation dollars for Monterey County, San Benito County, and Santa Cruz County in California. Your participation in the Cycletracks project helps officials decide how to spend those transportation funds.

There are two ways to track your rides. You can either track your trips using the Cycletracks app on your GPS-enabled Android or Apple smart phone, or you can manually enter your rides in via the Cycletracks Monterey website. If you make the same trip by bike every single day, there’s no need to enter the trip more than once, so that’s a handy feature for the daily commute.

To learn more, enter your bike trip, enter your trip data, and enter the contest to win one of those prizes, visit Cycletracks Monterey right now. The contest is only for Monterey Bay region residents; that is, those of you who live in Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey Counties. Good luck and happy Bike Month!

    “If you make the same trip by bike every single day, there’s no need to enter the trip more than once, so that’s a handy feature for the daily commute.”

    Does this mean that they only want one instance of each route or that there is some way to indicate a repeat of a previously entered ride? I did not see any way to indicate repeating a ride, but I’m certainly not going to click out a given route more than once!

    It seems to suggest volume of bike traffic doesn’t really play into their planning, but I don’t think that makes sense. The route I rode once from Watsonville to Monterey carries the same weight as the daily trip I make from home to the bus stop?

    You only have to enter a trip one time, regardless of how many times you ride it. Thanks for entering your trips!
