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

Bike Tips:

Coming from the bike/multi-use path at Fisherman's Wharf (Wharf I), MYO is straight up Alvarado Street from the Custom House Plaza/Fisherman's Wharf. However, note that at Del Monte Avenue (just in front of the Portola Hotel & Spa), cyclists are directed to use Calle Principal, since Alvarado is a one-way street. No worries, it's a wider street anyway! And the ride is short and pleasant.

Bike up Calle Principal until you reach the Y-intersection--take the left option, onto Hartnell; there's an immediate stop sign. There, turn left onto Polk Street. Bike up that little stretch of street; very soon you'll see the tall walls of Cooper Molera Adobe and its barn on your right. Just after that, you are at the top of Alvarado Street--be cautious, as this is a five-way intersection. Go straight through that intersection, you're now on Alvarado. On your right is Ordway Pharmacy, and MYO will be quickly after Ordway.

Outdoor and indoor tables by a window make it easy to watch a pricey bike. There is also a nearby bike rack--low-to-the-ground black iron rack, in front of Ordway.
