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:

Conveniently located at the Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links Clubhouse, across the street from the Point Pinos Lighthouse. Direx here are coming from the Aquarium and are excerpted from "Tips for Bicycling Monterey County": first, bike to Lovers Point (this stretch is all off-road bike path, and it even has separate lanes for pedestrians and cyclists). Then, from Lovers Point to Asilomar Avenue, you share the road with cars, and this is a signed bike route only (there is no marked bike lane). After Asilomar Avenue, a bike lane is re-established (still shares the road with cars). You'll see the Lighthouse up ahead, and the golf links on your left.
