Transportation could be very important in a SHTF scenario. Each person and each group has different treansportation needs and capabilities depending on a number of factors. We have discussed the aspects of selecting a Bug Out Vehicle, but would a bicycle be a practical alternative or addition?

I look at a bike and I see your uncovered back as you pedal furiously away from me. Top speed on a bicycle is on average 40 km/h (25 mph).
11 meters a second, 37 fps.
Hell my air rifle cracks out at 550 fps let alone a 12 gauge Remington Express Buckshot (12 pellets #0 Buck) at 1275 fps.
Now my air rifle will make things painful but as for the shotgun?
You’re toast my friend.
LOL! I suppose the same theory could apply to anyone walking or perhaps even driving a boat in inland waterways. Regardless of mode of transportation, one should avoid being a tactical target.

Ha, very true, and at 4 mph tops we’re even bigger and easier to hit.
Still 8mm marine aluminum will slow things down a bit!
