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

Reservations recommended. Occasional property blackout dates may apply. Evidence option: bicycle pump or helmet.

Bike Tips:

First, when biking on Carmel Valley Road and other well-traveled roads throughout the county, remember to make use of high-visibility apparel and accessories. Second, don't feel you have to do an all-or-nothing cycling day to enjoy Lucia Restaurant & Bar. Consider the bike-and-ride options (see Tips for Tourists Bicycling Monterey). Take your bike on the MST bus, via hotel shuttle, or your own car's bike rack part-way, then cycle the remaining distance.

Option 1: Use the MST bike-and-ride option from anywhere in the county and take it to the mouth of Carmel Valley, at H'way 1 and Carmel Valley Road (get off at the Barnyard Shopping Village). Then, bike the remaining 9.5 miles to Bernardus, which will be on your left at the corner of Carmel Valley Road and Laureles Grade.

Option 2: If cycling from Carmel-by-the-Sea, take the route via Rio Road, passing Carmel Mission, instead of cycling via Highway 1. When you reach Rio Road and Highway 1, cross over H'way 1 and continue to the Carmel Post Office. Make a left here, then make a right at the T-intersection. At the next T-intersection, make a left. Continue up to the light at Carmel Valley Road. Make a right. Then, continue along Carmel Valley Road for 9.5 miles to Bernardus, which will be on your left at the corner of Carmel Valley Road and Laureles Grade.

Option 3: (This route is for fit cyclists, as Laureles Grade is steep.) Coming from Salinas, take Highway 68 toward Monterey / Laguna Seca. Turn left at Laureles Grade and continue for six miles. Turn left onto Carmel Valley Road and Bernardus Lodge is on the immediate left.
