Pedal and Paddle
Paddleboarding is a fantastic activity to do with friends, you don’t need any experience to take part, just a willingness to give it a go.
Our friends at WhatsupUK (@whatsupuk on Facebook) are paddleboarders who love an adventure. We got together and decided that the only thing better than a lovely ride on quiet traffic free cycle paths was to combine it with a paddleboard and a BBQ, so we coined project ‘Pedal and Paddle’ which does exactly that.
We will split into two groups, with one group heading out on the bikes for 45 minutes and the other having a paddleboard session, before returning to base and swapping over. Once you’ve had a go at both activities we’ll fire up the BBQ and spend a few hours enjoying each others company and planning the next adventure.
We supply the paddleboards and all safety equipment including buoyancy aids and we give you instruction to get you going. Once you feel confident it’s up to you where you go, you are free to explore at your own speed and return when you like. We will have a guide with you to point out some of the features of the venue and offer advice, but it’s all about relaxing and enjoying time in the fresh air.
You will need to bring your own bike, but we have a few to hire for those that need them.
We have two amazing venues that combine these two amazing sports, Marine Lake in Weston-super-Mare, combined with a ride in Weston Woods on the mountain bikes or Congresbury Weir and a gravel ride along the Strawberry Line to Winscombe and back.
These sessions are limited to 20 riders (10 per activity at any time) and cost £50 per person.Follow us on Social Media or Blog post updates.
