Local businesses in Phoenixville, Norristown, and Conshohocken are partnering with the Schuylkill River Town Program to celebrate the Circuit Trail rebranding on April 16th. Participants will head to one of the ride’s kick-off points between 9am and 1pm on Saturday to pick up a River Town passport.
