About the Pottstown Pedal & Paddles: Each Pottstown Pedal and Paddle begins with a 4.5 mile bike ride from Pottstown’s Riverfront Park to Douglassville, using yellow cruisers from the Bike Pottstown bike share program. Participants either take a guided tour of Morlatton Village’s four 18th century buildings including the oldest home in Berks County or ride directly to Douglassville’s Ganshahawny Park for a lesson on water quality. Events with a water quality focus include more on-water time, with stops for water testing. All events include 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.
About the Lock 60 Pedal & Paddle at Schuylkill Canal Park: This will consist of a bike ride along the Schuylkill River Trail and a kayaking loop that begins on the river and returns via the canal. It will include a guided tour of the canal and Lock Tenders House.Pedal & Paddles FAQs
