Pedal and Paddle II

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 8:00am at the Clock Tower at Recreation Drive.  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 17 miles and the boat route will be about 4.5 miles.

Lunch will be at a restaurant in Roscoe Village.  There is a nice Middle Eastern restaurant that looks good .  We will cycle there.  Bring your bike locks!
