Pedal and Paddle

Pedal And Paddle

Join us for a fun event where we will combine 2 different fun sports: Cycling (Pedalling) and Kayak/Canoeing (Paddling). We will literally, pedal a route north (upstream) and paddle back downstream. This will not only be fun, but we will be able to work out both our upper and lower bodies.

How This Will Work
We will meet at 10:00am at the south boat launch (3400 N. Rockwell). You will either drive to this location or cycle to this location from an earlier start point. Then, we will cycle to the north boat launch. We will unload the kayaks and canoes from the truck. Then, we will load up our bikes on to the same truck. We will paddle south (downstream) to the south boat launch. Our bikes will be transported back to the south boat launch and be waiting for us when we get there. The bike route will be about 9 miles and the boat route will be about 6 miles.

Longer Bike Ride Option (17 miles total)
We will also be meeting at 9:00am at the Clocktower at Recreation Drive. It's 8 miles round trip to the boat launch from there.

You can bring your own brown bag lunch which we will put in a cooler, or you can order lunch from Jimmy John's (TBD) and it will be delivered to the boat launch area.
