(my apologies for the title of this post; due to the late hour, i think i started to get a bit loopy... )
earlier this week, i received the following invite from the santa monica chapter of the LA bike coalition:
What:3rd Annual Santa Monica Fourth of July Parade When: Saturday, July 4th, 2009, 9:00 AM Check-in; Parade starts at 9:30 AM Where: Meet up at Santa Monica Civic Center Why: Greenpeace LA invites the cycling community to join them as they march under the theme of "Saving the Climate is Patriotic!" What to bring: Water, sunscreen, your bike and yourself decorated as a patriotic symbol of sustainable transportation. NOTE: Each rider will need to bring a signed waiver at the parade check-in, under 18 require a parents signature. No waiver, no participation.
my first response was to reply immediately with a YES! after all, why wouldn't i want to participate in a 4th of july parade on my bicycle?
but then i realized that with the shortened holiday schedules at many of the yoga studios, it might mean my missing out on a chance to take a yoga class that day... hmmm...
luckily, after checking the holiday schedules, it looks like i have a few 12:30ish class options located right by the parade route. so not only will i be able to be patriotic on my bike, but i'll also be able to celebrate the day on my yoga mat, too!
so here are the holiday schedules i've found so far. if your favorite yoga studio is missing from this list, please feel free to send their information to me so i can add it in... thanks!
