STAFF REFERENCE SHEET for businesses and organizations participating in HER Helmet Thursdays

The 2024 Staff Reference Sheet (download PDF below) is for Monterey County businesses and organizations already in the HER Helmet Thursdays Project.

Launched 2009, HER Helmet Thursdays is a long-term ecology-economy sustainability project that helps HER / Mother Earth by encouraging more visitors and residents to bike. The project has no scheduled end-date.

Staff Reference Sheet

Please complete the following 4 steps, so your staff will be ready to give people who bike a special welcome on Thursdays.
1. Download PDF of the Staff Reference Sheet by clicking link below:
2024 Staff Reference  Sheet – HER Helmet Thursdays
2.  Print a copy.
3.  Fill in the areas highlighted in yellow. If you forgot your establishment’s discount percentage, and any alcohol policy, please refer to your listing in the guide (10th Anniversary HER Helmet Thursdays Guide), or just phone us. (You’re welcome to try reaching us by phone at any hour that is convenient for you.)

a. All establishments: Fill in your percentage discount and—if you serve alcohol—your include/exclude alcohol policy.

b. All establishments: Check any dates for special event weeks, or Thanksgiving, that you do want to restrict. (This is simply for your staff’s reference. You do not need to tell Bicycling Monterey these preferences.)

c. All establishments except lodging providers: Check the box indicating your preference whether to require a helmet as evidence. (This is simply for your staff’s reference. You do not need to tell Bicycling Monterey this preference, unless you would like it noted in your listing; if you’d like that, phone Bicycling Monterey.)

4.  FINAL STEP: Share filled-in sheet with your staff.

Post your filled-in Staff Reference Sheet on your employee bulletin board. Or make a copy of your filled-in sheet to distribute to your staff. And remember to include mention of HER Helmet Thursdays when you are training new staff.
