Kayak Hauler

Kuando and his kayak strapped to his Surly Big Dummy,
headed to Medicine Lake.

Early this summer, I had the good fortune to come across this guy, who goes by kuando on the Mpls. Bike Love website. We chatted about lots of things Bike and about how the suburb we were in at the moment, has fairly lousy bike trails. Then we parted, as he wanted to get the kayak in the water to catch the gorgeous sunset to come.
I love seeing hauling bikes haul something!

cool pic! when I saw your title I was hoping that it was this other guy I see around Calhoun and Harriet that hauls a kayak on a long BoB like trailer.

This is actually a goal of mine! There is a lake near my home that would be good for short kayak jaunts and the public launch into the Bay is very close by, too. I can't get the boats on my car rack by myself, but I could get one on my bicycle!

I depends what kind of bike(s) you have. His Big Dummy is made for that kind of job since the back wheel is set back farther. But, Goodluck!
