The term “bug out vehicle” gets thrown around a lot in the prepper community, but it almost always refers to a car or truck of some kind. That is great if you have a family, but if you’re single and in good shape (or have a partner who is also in good shape) and don’t have any kids, a bicycle might be the perfect form of transportation during a major disaster. It’s quiet, it doesn’t take any gas, and if you use racks and multiple bags, you can take everything you need with you.
In this article from The Survivalist Blog, David explains how to find an affordable bike, what kind of bike to buy, what features to look for, what biking supplies to get, and more. The author is a bike technician, so he knows what he’s talking about.

The title gave it away but a bicycle is a remarkably efficient form of transportation and very relevant to prepping plans.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
