“Outdoor Activities” and I have an interesting relationship. It usually involves one to three hours of physical activity, the development of a wicked sunburn, and ends with a long nap.
Adapted for those without use of their legs.
Body harnesses for those with little core strength.
Handles are modified for those without a strong grip.
Done in doubles for optimal participation.
Involves a lot of coordination.
Prepare for scrapped hands from lack of said coordination with rowing paddles.
The rowing backwards makes me a little skittish.
Definitely easier to navigate in the river.
Options of single or double aka “divorce” kayaks.
The kayaks don’t feel like they’ll tip into the river.
You row forward and can enjoy the river’ and city sights.
They are trickier to get into. It involves sitting on the dock and lifting yourself from the dock to the kayak in a lateral shift into the vessel.
Expect to get some Schuykill River on you. Well, expect a lot really.
You feel the need to keep an eye out for the multiple sculls out practicing on the river.
All hand and arm propelled. Some even if you can’t use your hands.
Multiple types of racing and leisure bikes.
You can try out multiple types of bikes before buying one of your own.
Tandem biking is available, as well, for those who are blind
If you get the wrong bike, it’s a little tricky to get your balance
I’ve decided to volunteer for biking. As you can see, it’s where my talent lays.
Are you interested in helping people scull and kayak?
Me, I’m headed home for a nap.
