Petroleum? This leads nicely onto .....

.... Bicycles!

Has anyone mentioned them yet? I know, I'm a biking advocate and folk will roll their eyes, but seriously, bikes will be a godsend when TEOTWAWKI hits.


Easy to fix and maintain, source parts for, uses no fuel, can be left and hid anywhere. You can fit it with panniers and use a backpack and instantly you've converted yourself from a slow 3 mph walk into a 15mph silent hunter/gatherer/scavenger with little effort. An escape speed of between 20 and 30mph if you run into mutants.

A 10 hour walk becomes a 2.5 hour glide. Don't forget you can hitch small trailers to the back too.
