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:

Bike tips: (1) Bike-and ride option from Oldtown Salinas: From the Oldtown Salinas MST Transit Center, you may put your bike on the MST 42. This will provide you with a nice introductory view of the community on your bus ride, which takes about 35-45 minutes. (2) Bike from Oldtown Salinas: For more experienced cyclists, you may prefer to bike there as follows. As usual, when sharing the road with cars, wear high-visibility clothing and exercise extra caution. From the MST Transit Center, cross Salinas Street to the big parking lot; pass the National Steinbeck Center through an alleyway (nice wall mural of John Steinbeck!). Turn left at the alley by the parking garage, and turn right onto W. Market Street; the intersection with a traffic light is right there, and the directional sign by the traffic light states "to North Main Street." (Note: Monterey Street becomes North Main Street at West Market; and there's no sign indicating Monterey Street at the intersection.) Cyclists will see the sidewalk they are to get on when they cross West Market Street and descend under the railroad bridge, because it's elevated (a higher curb, that is). For safety, as you go under the railroad overcrossing, STAY ON THE SIDEWALK. (The Bicycling Monterey website has Salinas sidewalk riding ordinance and related tips. Check Bicycling Monterey for any updates to these sidewalk instructions: bike cautiously and at a reasonable speed; yield to all pedestrian traffic; give an audible signal before overtaking and passing pedestrian. Details: )

Take a LEFT at the first light after the railroad overcrossing--it's West Rossi Street--and take West Rossi for 1 to 1.5 miles to N. Davis Road, then turn RIGHT onto N. Davis. La Plaza Bakery West is in the shopping center to your RIGHT as you reach the traffic light at North Davis and Post Road.
