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 or participate in an educational program within the National Heritage Area.
