Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Rack suggestions, want flexibility to haul canoe as well

Any rack suggestions for a 2011 Honda Odyssey?
Would like flexibility to haul canoe as well.
Looking at a few systems and wonder what folks have used successfully.
Thanks

Ha
That's a winner, but not quite what I had in mind.

Roof rack is what's next.

Lot's of stuff out there, Thule and Yakima are the leaders also the priciest. Then there's Rocky Mounts and others.

At a very basic level, a foot kit with adapters for the vehicle, plus load bars. Then strap/tie the canoe down. Then for cycling, a set of bike trays in either a fork mount, an upright with a downtube clamp (least recommended), or the newer wheel bracket design. Plus a small ladder to gain access to the roof on a tall vehicle.

Then all the assorted outdoors folks, REI, EMS, Campmor, LL Bean, Cabela's,
Plus most of the on-line cycling sites carry stuff.
