want to ride my bike and pull my kayak
Posted by: dancingrowing on Mar-19-08 10:27 AM (EST) Category: Other Gear
I've seen people do it.
Anyone have a recommendation?
I want a trailer to hook to my bike
and pull my kayak behind me.

I'd be curious to hear|

from a real person who owns and uses one. I wonder how well one of these carts would work on uneven country roads, gravel, potholes, hills (up and down) and how they handle turns. I can see these things working in a kind of Truman Show type world, but wonder how they would work outside of some planned community with wide, smooth, flat streets with no traffic.
did you see the "tony's" ad?|

...and the photo with three kayaks stacked on one trailer?
Hills would be my concern|

There was someone who posted on paddling.net about using one for a canoe. I was totally jealous of their ability to place their bike in the canoe, so they could bike upstream, and paddle back down, all without having to return for their bike.
You don't need a trailer|

Years back there was a pic of Chris Cunningham (editor of Sea Kayaker) towing his kayak. He strapped a set of wheels on the stern area of the kayak. Then he had pole or length of wood? - strapped to the front deck that attached to an area behind the seat of the bicycle. That was it.
Sounds like a fun project to make one|

I think a trailer for pulling kids on the bike might be a good framework to modify. Watch yard sales in your area. When kids get too big for those and get a bike with training wheels, they aren't needed anymore, so people should be getting rid of them a lot.

Last Fall I created a kayak trailer to pull with my commuter bike.

We have one by Wike. My son used it to get to the river with his kayak up until he got his driver's license. It worked great for him and there is a good sized hill up to our house that he was able to manage on his mountain bike towing a 60 lb. kayak.
