Description:

ABOUT THE HER HELMET THURSDAYS PROJECT:
Businesses and organizations participating in HER Helmet Thursdays help HER / Mother Earth by providing discounts on Thursdays for people who bike. A long-term project with no scheduled end-date, HER Helmet Thursdays was launched in 2009 in Monterey County, California as a public service. NOTE: When participating businesses and organizations sign up, they are provided a staff reference sheet. Many have frequent staff changes. Just in case a staff person on duty isn't familiar with this long-term project, it may be helpful to have the listing for that location pulled up on your mobile phone screen (or print a copy of their listing to take along), so you're prepared to kindly show their listing.
Before claiming discount, refer to FAQs and project details, including date restrictions, in "LISTINGS, Map, How to Get the Discounts, and FAQs about HER Helmet Thursdays" at http://www.bikemonterey.org.

ABOUT THIS PARTICIPANT:
Unique in Monterey County, this 8,500 square foot museum houses seven galleries with 80 hands-on exhibits, i.e., beach, golf, farm, tree, hospital, theatre, and a very popular "creation station." Kindly note: shoes required, and all children must be supervised by an adult (age 18 or older). Near the bike path, and close to the Monterey Sports Center (a popular shower-and-change location for cycling day visitors); near both Joselyns and Aquarian Bicycles too.

Bike Tips:

From the bike path at Wharf #2/Commercial Wharf, it's a short distance to MY Museum. However, there are some one-way streets, so you will probably want to take a short detour rather than walk your bikes to take the more direct route. Here are two options (all-cycling one first): (1) Leave bike path at Wharf #2 and walk across Del Monte Avenue onto Figueroa (you'll see Lopez Taqueria & Liquor on your left at the corner). Bike up Figueroa to the next corner, which is Franklin Street (large building on right is Monterey Sports Center; on your left, you'll see Monterey Federal Credit Union). Continue up Figueroa to Pearl Street (you/ll see Jacks Park to your right in this section). Make a right on Pearl and continue to Washington Street. Make a right on Washington (bank will be on your right). Now, bike down Washington Street until you get to MY Museum, which will be on your right. Or, bike-and-walk option: (2) Leave bike path at Wharf #2 and walk across Del Monte Avenue onto Figueroa (you'll see Lopez Taqueria & Liquor on your left at the corner). Bike up Figueroa to the next corner, which is Franklin Street (large building on right is Monterey Sports Center; on your left, you'll see Monterey Federal Credit Union). Turn right and walk up the sidewalk, continue past the Monterey Sports Center. (You'll see Room for Dessert on your left.) Keep going to Washington Street; make a left on Washington, and MY Museum will be on your left.
