any other paddlers out there?
Yes. I paddle almost entirely flat water: rivers and lakes in the NJ Pine Barrens, on the Delaware River and some of its tributary rivers/creeks. The reason I took up cycling again after many years had to do with kayaking. I usually paddle upstream and then downstream back to my car. That's kind of impossible for me if I want to start paddling rapids. So, I thought I could get a beater bike, drop it off and lock it up at my take out location below the rapids. Then when I take the kayak out at that location, I could lock it up and ride the bike back to the car. Anyway, I got my old bike back into shape for riding and have only been in the kayak a couple of times since then. Cycling is just so much more convenient than paddling. But I'll be back out on the water as soon as it warms up anyway. Maybe. I hope. Possibly. It could happen.
