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 trail at Fisherman's Wharf/Wharf #1, the Portola Hotel is very closeby. It is located just across the Custom House Plaza from the coastal trail. It is also near an Adventures-by-the-Sea bike rental location. And to make the visit even sweeter, it is located near many other HER Helmet Thursdays spots, including Peter B's Brewpub and Spa on the Plaza.
