If you have CEO-level salaries, you could also get a Montague Paratrooper Pro foldable bike (US$995) and a ONAK foldable canoe (US$1442), and you could put both in your office when you get there.
Note: it seems that it's possible to drag the folded ONAK canoe behind when riding a bike since it has two wheels for transportation. And it's likely that a folded Montague Paratrooper bike can be put in the canoe.
havw fun kayaking in the frozen Minnesota waters.
A few years ago there was a story in the paper about a guy who kayaked from Millvale to the Strip to work. So I thought that maybe I could commute from the east. Thankfully, I did a test run on a Saturday. I dropped in at the public launch in Braddock...2 hours later I made it to Hays eagles' nest. That changed my mind in a big way :-)
If Mpls can do it, I'd be surprised if we couldn't do it, with the temperate climes here.
@durishange I wonder how long it would take from South Side to Downtown, of course, it wouldn't be about time, it would be about the pure delicious awesome of kayaking/riding.
Kayaking is fun but really slow in rivers with locks & dams. In my experience it is tough to paddle more than 3-4 miles per hour around here, even downstream. A minor headwind can crush your pace. Still faster than a car on these Liberty Bridge closure detours, but bikes are much more efficient.
It would be awesome to go for a paddle without necessarily having to return the kayak to where you started, like from Southside Works to Point State Park, or Lawrenceville to the Northside for a bucco game. I would imagine that downstream trips would be way more popular, though, so there would be lots of kayak shutting necessary to get them back upstream (or maybe cheaper/free upstream trips).
