Biker ride to the Tohickon Creek Aqueduct and back to Bulls Island Recreation Area for a lunch break (restrooms available). Bikes will be stored securely in the park maintenance area.

The 3-mile paddle portion at the Bulls Island Boat Launch into the canal begins with 30 minutes for paddle instruction, adjusting boats, and fitting life vests. Paddlers land at Prallsville Mills, then drive back to Bulls Island to pick up bikes.

Participants must provide their own bicycle and a helmet is required. Kayak, life jackets, and paddle will be provided as part of the registration fee. Children must be 12 years or older and accompanied by an adult.

Participants must bring their own packable lunch/snacks and water (must be carried by participants on the bike ride) or preorder lunch for a noon pickup from the Lumberville General Store, thelumbervillegeneralstore.com.
