Bicycles for Load Transport
In a disaster, with limited fuel availability and damaged roads (which may preclude access by a vehicle) bicycles can be used to transport loads long distances effectively. The loads may be transported with a special trailer, which should be obtained in advance, in a wire basket in front of the handlebars, or draped across the tubular middle load bearing structure (male bikes only). Keeping such a trailer handy should be part of your emergency preparedness protocol. To secure loads to the structural member you either need a saddle-bag type arrangement of to drape the load across the bar. Military-style duffle bags, secured with load straps or rope, are ideal for this purpose.  The duffle bags can be filled with water (in containers), food, or supplies.The bicycle is walked, rather than ridden.
