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

A local's favorite, and listed by Sunset magazine as one of the best taquerias in the West, the Fishwife's Turtle Bay Taquerias are known for light, healthy food without compromising heartiness and flavor, and at reasonable prices. The Fishwife's Turtle Bay Taquerias provide guests a direct view of the taco bars, where seafood, meats, and vegetables are grilled or charbroiled, and tacos prepared, as they watch. Other popular menu items include wraps, bowls, tostacos, enchiladas (mole or verde), salads, turtle brownies, and more. Traditional recipes from Southern Mexico and Belize. Dine in, on the outdoor patio, or order to go.

Bike Tips:

From the bike path at Roberts Lake, Turtle Bay-Seaside is only a 1.4 mile bike ride. From the bike path at Roberts Lake/Embassy Suites intersection, cross Del Monte Ave and go up Canyon Del Rey Blvd. Here are two options: (1) To go through residential neighborhoods, take Canyon Del Rey a short distance until you come to Sonoma. Make a LEFT on Sonoma, then a RIGHT onto Trinity. Continue on Trinity to Trinity Park; just after the park, Fishwife, and the adjacent Turtle Bay, will be on your left. Or, (2) Continue on Canyon Del Rey all the way to Fremont Blvd; you'll see Walgreen's your left, and you'll also spot Safeway across Fremont Blvd, on your far right. Make a left onto this busy Fremont Blvd (wear high-visibility apparel and exercise extra caution). Several blocks down, on your left-hand side, you'll see the sign for Turtle Bay and Fishwife on your left, at the corner of Fremont and Trinity (turn LEFT onto Trinity). Located in a friendly neighborhood where many local residents commute by bike.
