Schuylkill River Pedal and Paddle
Sat May 14 to Sat September 10, 2016 - 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
About the Pedal & Paddles: Most Pedal and Paddles begin with a 4.5 mile bike ride from Pottstown’s Riverfront Park to Historic Morlatton Village in Douglassville, using yellow cruisers from the Bike Pottstown bike share program. Participants take a guided tour of Morlatton Village's four 18th century buildings including the oldest home in Berks County. From there, they take a short bike ride to Douglassville’s Ganshahawny Park where they eat a picnic lunch(provided) and receive a brief introduction to kayaking from outfitter Doug Chapman of Take it Outdoors Adventures. Then, they paddle back to Pottstown via the Schuylkill River. Food, bikes, kayaks and all kayaking gear are provided. Must be 16 or older to participate.
