The bicycle makes a great piece of exercise equipment. It is probably the best alternative to running for sustained cardio exercise and also has some interval training qualities when traversing hilly territory. Too much running for the mature person will inevitably result in damaged knees and tendons. The bicycle provides virtually injury free cardio and also makes a great and cheap form of alternative transport. All active survivalists should have a bike.
The bike shown above is my wet weather night rider. It's kitted out with dual headlights, rear light, mud guards, road tyres, after market front suspension and a kick stand. It is an early Marin mountain bike that has few original components unchanged. It is setup for all riding conditions and is very rugged and reliable.
