The City of Winooski, Friends of the Winooski River and Winooski Valley Park District are partnering and happy to offer this one of a kind event  on Sunday, July 23, 2017. “Pedal & Paddle” will have participants pedal their bikes from Ethan Allen Homestead to Winooski where they will hop in their kayaks or canoes and paddle back to the start! Participants will drop off their boats in Winooski, drive to the Ethan Allen Homestead in Burlington, and then bike to Winooski. The approximately 4 mile pedal is predominantly on dirt paths and roads along the river and through the Intervale Center to Winooski. In Winooski, you will hop in your canoe or kayak and paddle back to the Homestead on the Winooski River through the beautiful Winooski Valley!

Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the beautiful grounds at the Homestead. There will be music, games and fun educational programs.  This laid back event will appeal to families and adults alike! Registration is $20 for participants 17 years of age and older, $12 for ages 10 to 16, and free for those 9 years old and younger. After July 21, fees will increase to $30 for ages 17 & up and $22 for ages 10 to 16.

Boat drop off is from 9:45-10:30am in Winooski (see map). Event begins at 10am and will run until 3:30pm at Ethan Allen Homestead in Burlington (Winooski Valley Park District). Bring a lock for your bikes and don’t forget to pick them back up in Winooski after the event! There will be bike rack monitors only until 4:30pm. Proceeds help support, protect and restore the Winooski River watershed.

This event will have a capacity of 100 participants. For multiple registrants, you must register each individual separately. Visit the Friends of Winooski River website for updates:
