Paddle - Peddle - Pub

What: Paddle, Peddle, & Pub

Description: Join us for a great workout and lots of fun on this multi sport trip (does eating and drinking count as a sport?) We will meet at the Safety Harbor Marina then unload the kayaks and paddle to Cooper's Bayou.  We'll then meander through the mangrove trails and under the bridge overlooking Courtney Campbell Causeway.  Then continue to paddle back towards the Marina and our bikes.  We'll then cruise down Bayshore Blvd to the Ream Wilson (East-West) Trail. This is a fun eight mile trail that wanders through lots of parks and has a few twists and hills along the way. Thats right I said hills!  Along the journey back we'll stop off to get a refreshment and show our patronage at the Beer Garden on McMullen Booth.  After a well deserved libation we'll bike up McMullen Booth towards Sunset Point and turn into Safety Harbor and continue to down town up to "The Whistle Stop", "Nolan's Irish Pub" and a few other establishments, leading up to The Bar Fly for some some great food and drink.  We'll say our goodbye's and then it's a short ride to our cars at the Marina.

 

When: Saturday, Oct, 26th we'll meet at Safety Harbor Marina, paddle to Coopers Bayou, then bike the East-West Trail, hit a few pubs and then have dinner in Safety Harbor.

Note: low tide is 4pm.

 

Cost: FREE if you own kayak.  Only $30 if renting a kayak from us.  $10 off regular rental price.

Bring: bikes ( mountain, road whatever) water, sunscreen, light clothing and a happy go lucky disposition.

    Sorry guys but my new girlfriend would like me to spend the morning and eraly aftrenoon teaching her to kayak as to not slow down the group, this is her first time but we'll be there for the biking. She's a biking stud and I can have her teach me a few things, so all is good in the Harbor! Thanks, Todd and Laura

    October 25, 2013

    • Carolina M.

      October 26, 2013

  • Ken R.

    Mike, I just updated my RSVP but just to confirm, one of my four guests will need to rent a kayak. All 4 are experienced kayakers.

    October 23, 2013

    • Carolina M.

      Ken is Peggy the one of your guests who is renting?

      October 26, 2013

  • Cyndi

    Sounds like a blast. Wish I could make it.

    October 25, 2013

  • Jim

    Hey Mike - do you have a best guess as to when we will finish?

    October 24, 2013

    • Carolina M.

      hard to say...depends on group...say 4pmish..but who knows we may do dinner at the bar Fly.

      October 24, 2013

  • Peggy E.

    Think ken rosenberger already included me and friends in his count/reply for this trip so am canceling my RSVP--I would like to rent a kayak

    October 23, 2013

  • Jill

    I will be there! May I pay for kayak rental on site?

    October 23, 2013

    • Carolina M.

      Hello Jill. We'd like the payments for rentals to be taken care of on this site if possible. Thanks for joining in.

      October 23, 2013

  • Sheila C.

    Do you have a 2 person kayak for rent? If so, I would like that for me and my guest.

    October 23, 2013

  • Peggy E.

    I will need to rent a kayak but my guests will bring their own boats. How should I pay for the rental?

    October 23, 2013

  • Dianne S.

    Not sure I can load my Kayak on top of my SUV. If I can't, I 'll just load it in the back,but then I won't be able to put my bike rack on. So I might only be doing the paddle part of the trip.

    October 22, 2013

  • Cathy

    This should be a great workout and I am looking forward to it. I have my own kayak.
