HER Helmet Thursdays — on Sea Otter Classic’s Opening Day, and on Thursdays year-round

The hospitality professionals in the 15-second video greetings below want to be sure visitors, and locals, are aware that people who help HER / Mother Earth by bicycling are appreciated throughout Monterey County.
They especially want you to know that even on the Opening Day of Sea Otter Classic, Monterey County’s HER Helmet Thursdays discounts are in effect. We wouldn’t think of making Sea Otter’s Opening Day a restricted date. Welcome, people who bike!
