Schuylkill River Trail

The Schuylkill River Trail traces the river of the same name, providing a location for recreational activities from Philadelphia all the way to Reading and beyond. I’ve ridden my bicycle on it many times but not lately. That is, until today:


I rode more than 20 miles, at an easy pace. The weather was chilly, but plenty of people out.


With ample places to park at various locations along the trail, there are many ways to access the route. While the views are a bit bleak now at the end of winter, there still are plenty of sights to see.


Get out there and get some exercise. It’s fun and good for you.

Snow Bike

Bicycling is lots of fun and can keep you fit. Winter is no reason to stop riding, either. As you can see in the photo below, I took to the streets and trails on my trusty Trek.


Of course, I wasn’t jumping over piles of snow. But I’ve been out there plenty this winter season, wearing my cold weather gear, cranking out the miles and burning the calories. The Trek never misses a beat. Just be careful around the cars and other hazards.
