POTTSTOWN >> Community members enjoyed the sunny weather on Wednesday with a group bike ride along the Schuylkill River Trail. The 3-mile cycling journey was part of this week’s Mercury Mile. Participants left from Riverfront Park in Pottstown, several of them using a Bike Pottstown cruiser. Bike Pottstown is a free bike share program in the area. The Schuylkill River Heritage Area manages the bike program and hosted Wednesday’s Mercury Mile.
