The Schuylkill River Heritage Area's popular Pedal and Paddle events are held monthly on Saturdays from May to September. Check back in early spring for a list of 2015 dates.
All Pedal and Paddles take participants on a round-trip biking/kayaking adventure from Pottstown to Douglassville. Each Pedal & Paddle begins 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 are given a guided tour of Morlatton Village, which includes four 18th century buildings, one of which is the oldest home in Berks County. From there, they take a short bike ride to Douglassville’s Ganshahawny Park where they eat a picnic meal(provided) and receive a brief introduction to kayaking from outfitter Doug Chapman of Take it Outdoors Adventure Group. Then, they paddle back to Pottstown in kayaks along the Schuylkill River.
Food, bikes, kayaks and all kayaking gear are provided. Must be 16 or older to participate
