Yes, I knew that - I came across him with the same user name on a kayaking forum.My physio suggested it to strengthen up my shoulders. Done a bit ofmriver kayaking and really enjoy it.
Numbnuts from the other side is heavily into it. He's on a few yak forums here and there.
I have dodgy shoulders, so it might be good for me too.My physio suggested it to strengthen up my shoulders.
In my case, the pain comes when using my arms above shoulder height. I don't have problems carrying weights or riding my bike. I reckon I would be okay with some moderate paddling.Hmm. I know someone who used to be a keen river kayaker but had to give up because it gave him bad shoulders. Working up gently is probably the way. That doesn't sound very Drago-ish though!
Not much point having a kayak where I am, but I have a friend who lives in Poole and he has one. Not surprising, if I lived by Poole harbour I would be out every week.I'm not currently a kayaker but I'm seriously tempted. We moved here nearly a year ago and we are very close to the Thames and I always look on with envy at the people paddling along......so watch this space.
Buy a house on the banks of a river, sortedI am mainly into cycling and walking but kayaking is something that quite appeals to me. The thing is, I don't drive so I would really be a bit restricted in where I could get to.
Ooh, hang on - Hollingworth Lake is only 11 km away and they do training courses!

No. But we have sea kayaks and mostly paddle on lakes. The aim is NOT to go in!In my case, the pain comes when using my arms above shoulder height. I don't have problems carrying weights or riding my bike. I reckon I would be okay with some moderate paddling.
Thinking about it ... Do you wear a wetsuit when kayaking? It must be bloody freezing if you end up in the water without one!
Two canoes, frame built to hold the two together with the bike on both. Back wheel then powers a small paddle wheel placed between both. Slow and steady.The Rochdale canal isn't far from here. I suppose that I could paddle up and down that, but how to get a kayak the 1 km there and back ...?
