This casual monthly event brings local livability experts to St. Louis city neighborhoods in fun, relaxed settings. It’s a time to bring the bicycling community together to network and address issues related to livability in St. Louis. Topics are submitted by neighborhood associations and individuals from throughout St. Louis.
Trailnet on Tap is held in a different city neighborhood each month, making it easy for people from all over to get involved. Snacks are provided and drinks will be available for purchase. All attendees receive a free custom-made TravelGreen T-shirt.

Topic: Active Transportation for Health at Every Size
It’s easy to get caught up in numbers on the scale, yet our health is more accurately measured by so many more factors than body weight. Personal trainer Tracy Herold will lead the discussion on the Health at Every Size movement (HAES), and how active transportation serves as a way to incorporate functional, practical exercise into our daily lives—regardless of one’s weight.
