20k would be no problem on the bike at all and the price seems very reasonable, what shop is it? PM me if you like.Bob said:MBM
I believe there is a good canoe shop in Bournemouth itself which sells an inflatable canoe by Stearns for around £ 350. It weighs around 20 kg though so I don't know if biking it around would be feasible?! I too would be keen to hear peoples' opinions as I have been tempted to get one myself.
The other thing I have been wondering about is the legality of paddling. What permits and licences do you need if any? anyone got any ideas?
