PARTICIPATE: How to Invite Businesses and Organizations to Participate

Return to HER Helmet Thursdays information Quick Links.


People who bike, or others enthused about HER Helmet Thursdays—a long-term ecology-economy sustainability project—are welcome to invite their favorite Monterey County businesses and organizations to participate. This page tells what to know first.

The primary participants are hotels and other lodging providers, educational and entertainment venues, restaurants and related places, including wineries. What about retail stores or other businesses or organizations? Phone Bicycling Monterey first to see if they’re appropriate for this project.

Next, check the Quick Reference Guide on the Listings/How to Get the Discounts/FAQs page to be sure they aren’t already participating. Also phone Bicycling Monterey to see if they may have recently signed up and just aren’t in the Quick Reference Guide yet.
