About the Pedal & Paddle: The Pedal & Paddle program is a round-trip adventure, which begins and ends from the same location along the Schuylkill River/Trail. The outdoor activity includes a bike ride along the Schuylkill River Trail using cruisers from the free Pottstown-based bike share program. As part of the event, people also paddle in a kayak via the Schuylkill River. Depending on the event, participants will sometimes take a guided tour, participate in an educational program or take part in a water quality lesson within the heritage area. Some of the excursions with a water quality focus will include more on-water time, with stops for water testing during the paddling portion, while others will take place after the paddle when participants are back on land.

All participants will be required to wear the provided personal flotation device and to sign a waiver. Regardless of skill level, everyone will receive a safety briefing before beginning the excursion. Gear, guides and food are all included in the registration. Participants must be 16 years of age or older. This program is limited to 17 people at each site and participants must register in advance.

 Food, bikes, kayaks and all gear are provided. Must be 16 or older to participate. All events limited to 17 participants.
