“Is there a cost to the businesses or organizations participating?”

No, there is still no fee as 2016 begins! In November 2009, the HER Helmet Thursdays project was created and launched in Monterey County as a public service by volunteer Mari Lynch. Although Mari had considered charging a fee after the charter participants period closed, Mari instead continued to do all Bicycling Monterey projects, including HER Helmet Thursdays, entirely as a volunteer!

Nonetheless, new in the 7th year of HER Helmet Thursdays is this option: to help maintain and expand this work, businesses and organizations are encouraged, not required, to contribute a gift certificate or other reward to be used for Bicycling Monterey fundraising. Click here for instructions on how to do that. Contact Mari with any questions.
