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:
A visitor's trip to Steinbeck Country will be far more complete with not only a trip to the National Steinbeck Center but also a gourmet lunch or charming tea at the nearby Steinbeck House.

The Steinbeck House was the birthplace and boyhood home of John Steinbeck, later purchased by the Valley Guild and opened to the public as a restaurant.

Visit The Steinbeck House website to learn more. Note their limited schedule and that reservations are advised. This is a very special place to soak up the feeling of this literary great while you renew your body with fresh Salinas Valley produce!

For more tips on experiencing Steinbeck's hometown, see the Bicycling Salinas section at the Bicycling Monterey website.

HER Helmet Thursdays discount at the Steinbeck House applies to your food and beverages (alcohol excluded) when you bike there on a Thursday. While the discount is not applicable to the gift shop, you'll surely enjoy browsing there too.
