For kayaking/canoeing please use Road Bike setting
When you are on an actual bike (or mountain bike) please can you change it to Mountain Bike and not the road bike setting
When you are on the indoor bike, please change it to indoor bike.
Make sure when using your Garmin for different sports you remember to change to the appropiate sport
The reason being when we want to look at kayaking summaries in Ludum or Training Peaks we would like to distinguish between actual cycling and kayaking and if both activity profiles are set to road bike, then it all gets merged into the same activity.
If for example you use your running while kayaking, the kayak session will not be captured and instead add to your running totals giving you a false running score
