I know that you can rent racing bikes for events, don't know what it costs. Probably kayaks as well.
Yes, one could rent the bike & kayak, but I will need to train on those two items... I've priced out kayaks and this time of year would be the ideal time to buy.
As for the bike, I've got an older mtn bike that I was going to sell and put that $ towards the purchase of an entry level road bike.
