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.

Bike Tips:

Located on Bardin Road. There are not as many bike lanes, and local cyclists say that often it seems not as much bike awareness on part of drivers in East Salinas. Recommended route from downtown Salinas is to get on Alisal Street and cycle east, about 3 to 3.5 miles, to Bardin Road. East Alisal Street bends to the right there, and there's Bardin Elementary School, so it's easy to spot. Turn left and go 1/2 mile. La Plaza Bakery & Cafe is in the shopping plaza on the right, just before the intersection with Williams Road. Some cyclists may want to return to the downtown area by traveling on Williams Road back to East Alisal, or continue on Williams to John Street, which parallels East Alisal. However, there's a lot of traffic and there are many parked cars along the way, and bike lanes are not well defined in most places. Watch your rear-view mirror! (Don't have a mirror on your bike yet? They're great for routes like this.) A better return route is to return the way you came, down Bardin to East Alisal; although it's a longer route, it is safer.
