I'm sure it would be possible with a foldable bike but has anyone ever tried lashing a full sized bike to the front cargo area?

Wouldn't that make the kayak top heavy and very unstable?

And if you do flip, could make it very difficult to turn the kayak right side up.

Unless you plan to 'install" pool noodles or similar on the bicycle to give it some buoyancy.

A friend of mine takes his recumbent trike on the back of his Sea Eagle inflatable. He rides the trike to the shoreline, pulling a trailer with his inflatable and gear. On the water, he loads the trailer and trike on the back of the kayak and paddles away.
