This event is a spinoff of our popular Pottstown Pedal and Paddle events that are held monthly each summer at Riverfront Park in Pottstown. The Lock 60 and Paddle will take place at Schuylkill Canal Park from 9 a.m. to about 2:00 p.m. Participants will take a bike ride along the Schuylkill River Trail and tour the canal, the locktender's house, and Lock 60, which is the only restored, operating lock remaining of the Schuylkill Navigation System. We will finsh up with a kayaking loop that begins on the river and returns via the canal. Lunch, kayaks, bikes and all kayaking gear are provided. Please bring your own helmet and water bottle. Limited to 15 participants. Must be 16 & older to participate. See our website for other Pedal & Paddle information.
