11th Anniversary of the HER Helmet Thursdays Project

On Thanksgiving 2020, we give thanks for the hundreds of businesses and organizations throughout Monterey County who have participated in HER Helmet Thursdays, a Bicycling Monterey project launched in November 2009. Together, they have helped make Monterey County a more bike-friendly place, for residents and visitors.

The impacts of the COVID-19 global pandemic mean some HER Helmet Thursdays businesses and organizations have closed temporarily, and others have closed permanently. For those that remain open, their methods of operation, and hours, have changed of necessity. And for all, circumstances are still in a state of flux, as of Thanksgiving week 2020.

Because of the pandemic-related uncertainties that remain on the 11th anniversary of the HER Helmet Thursdays Project, Thanksgiving 2020, the guide and database of participants (provided on the Listings/FAQs page) will not be updated for now.

Before going to any participant’s location…

Phone ahead to inquire about their current status—such as, perhaps (1) closed temporarily, or closed permanently; or (2) open for curbside service or to-go orders only; or (3) open for outdoor service only; or (4) other extraordinary circumstances.

Wherever you go, please help stop the spread of this pandemic. Follow guidelines regarding masks, physical distancing, and more, as ordered by public health officials for Monterey County and the State of California.

Here’s to 2021 being
a healthier and more
prosperous year for all!
