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:
Since Jan 4, 2012, the Golden Tee was in the HER Helmet Thursdays Project, and the business had a change of ownership in 2019. The new co-owners are Rich Pepe and Bobby Richards, and the new business name is Fly Away Cafe and Bar. We reached out to the new owners on July 18, 2019, and the business will remain in the HER Helmet Thursdays Project.

Richards told KSBW on November 15, 2019: "We want to concentrate on regional foods, regional wine. Whatever we can find regional or source regional, that's what we will try to do." Learn more: https://www.ksbw.com/article/golden-tee-restaurant-and-bar-under-new-ownership/29817555

Bike Tips:

Located just off the Monterey-Salinas Highway 68, at the Monterey Regional Airport--and parallel to the Garden Road bicycle lanes.

Fly Away Cafe and Bar is an easy-to-follow bike route from the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail.

Bike-there directions from the coastal trail AT CASA VERDE:
Leave the bike/multi-use trail at the Casa Verde intersection, where Casa Verde intersects the trail and the street that parallels the trail there, Del Monte Avenue. (Not familiar with that intersection? A landmark on the southwest corner of Casa Verde and Del Monte is Bay View Academy.)

Cross Del Monte Avenue and bike south on Casa Verde. There are no bike lanes on most of Casa Verde, until just before the Monterey County Fair & Event Center, so use extra caution as you share the traffic lane with cars.
Continue up Casa Verde all the way to the T-intersection at Fairground Road. (When you’re nearly there, Casa Verde crosses Fremont Avenue. At the Casa Verde and Fremont intersection, on your right is a gas station and, across Fremont, a Beverly’s fabrics/crafts store.)
After crossing Fremont, you’ll see a “green lane” leading to Fairground Road. IMG_0177
Turn right at the corner of Casa Verde and Fairground Road. Continue west on Fairground Road to the traffic signal at the corner of Fairground Road and Garden Road.
At the traffic signal, turn left onto Garden Road, then continue on Garden Road all the way to the next T-intersection, which is at Olmsted Road. Turn left there, and you’re at the airport.

ALTERNATE ROUTE - Bike-there direx from the coastal trail AT CAMINO AGUAJITO
Leave the bike/multi-use trail at Camino Aguajito, which has a traffic signal. You’ll be crossing the street that parallels the trail there, Del Monte Avenue. (Not familiar with that intersection? There’s a gas station on the southeast corner of Camino Aguajito and Del Monte.)
Continue south on Camino Aguajito to Third Street. Turn left on Third Street (landmark—but not the direction you’re going: on the right, that street is named Pearl Street and bridges over Lake El Estero).
Continue east on Third Street to the T-intersection at Sloat, which runs alongside the Naval Postgraduate School.
Turn right onto Sloat. Continue south on Sloat until you reach the traffic light at Mark Thomas Drive.
Turn left onto Mark Thomas Drive.
Continue east on Mark Thomas to the traffic signal at Garden Road. (Just fyi, at Garden Road, Mark Thomas becomes Fairground Road.)
Turn right at the traffic signal onto Garden Road.
Continue on Garden Road all the way to the next T-intersection, which is at Olmsted Road. Turn left there, and you’re at the airport.
