Is it feasible to put an inflatable kayak in a backpack, strap a two piece paddle to the bike or backpack, and take off on a nice little outing all day on your day off?
The reason I ask is basically I never hear about people doing this and I've been thinking of doing it. I put this in this forum because this seems like something adventurous road biking people would be into. Also if there are activities similar to this that people go on I would love to hear about it.
My specific case, I would actually be road biking to the beach (15 mile trip each way). I would secure the bike, inflate the kayak and get to it. Its the ocean so I'm not sure what kayak I would need yet, but to give you an idea an entry freshwater inflatable kayak weights 15 lbs and starts at $50. The most rugged inflatable kayaks I have seen are $300 - $400 and weigh about 30 to 50 lbs.
One thing of concern to me is how the ocean would effect the feasibility of this. For example, in shallow water there may be more things that could tear the kayak. This may sound dumb but I am not keen on the idea of some inflatable material being the only thing between me and a shark either.
I'm getting ready to purchase a bike and will use this information to help my decision also.
