How much fun would kayaking on the river right here in town be? Let me fill you in on a little secret: it would be a lot of fun.
I’ve been kinda thinking about that for a couple years now, but haven’t done anything about it. yet….
Kayaks are (maybe) expensive, but I could have access to a canoe for free. The only thing is I don’t have a vehicle set up to carry a canoe anywhere. But you know what? A canoe is not unreasonable to tow behind a bicycle. There is at least one company that makes canoe/kayak trailers for bikes. They look pretty nice but are fairly expensive.
So I got to thinking about making my own canoe/kayak trailer to pull behind my bike. I’m no welder so the first thing I think of is using some type of PVC pipe. I’ve heard of people using it to make cargo trailers to pull behind bikes. I just don’t know if I could build something with PVC that would be strong enough to carry a canoe.
So you more about this type of stuff than I do. Would that be the right material to use, or is there something else (better) that I could do myself.
Who wants to help me design a canoe/kayak trailer for a bicycle?
Who wants to put it to use with me?
