It had been a few months since we made it to a St. Louis Green Drinks event, so last night’s gathering was a priority. They had a great panel of speakers on the topic of Urban Farming — apparently quite popular, because it was standing room only.
The usual meeting location, Schlafly Bottleworks, is easily bikeable for us, but last night our trusty steeds did not grace the bike racks. Although I’ve been feeling pretty good for the past week, I have had a few relapses into not so good, and I’m beginning to wonder if it’s as much my body giving signals that I’ve been overdoing things as it is related to what I’m eating. So I’m trying to be good and take it easy, at least until Friday.
Despite having some justification for riding in a car to get there, I felt a bit guilty all night, especially given the nature of the event (but hey, at least the topic wasn’t green transportation).
Not all was lost, as I had some great discussions after the panel, including the chance to bring up Cycling Savvy. Speaking of, if you live in the St. Louis area, don’t miss the July series of Cycling Savvy courses. I won’t be teaching, but depending on baby’s arrival, Matthew will be teaching both of the on-bike course segments (“Train Your Bike” and “Tour of St. Louis”).
