The Survival Bicycle
Survivalists, man, they are endless entertainment. What with their always on the edge of collapse theories and total freak outs, amazingly designed webpages, and bulk sales of rice and beans. You have to give it to them though, they are friends of the bicycles. They are smart enough to know that when it all goes down, it won’t be a Mad Max battle for meager gasoline reserves, but rather we’ll all be (happily?) cruising down the streets on our two-wheeled steeds. To that end, survivalist sites often think deeply about what would make a practical post-apocalypse bike, of which we can derive pre-collapse benefit.
The bike and trailer pictured above, for instance, was built by a local Indianapolis rider who carts supplies, kids and basically anything and everything through the streets no matter the demands or the weather.
The site that highlighted his ride gives a rundown of considerations to make for a proper post-collapse vehicle. The comments seems to contain a lot of well thought out suggestions as well.
