Description
Bikes are one of the most versatile transportation tools. They offer mobility with no need for fuel and are easy to repair. They are generally from before the apocalypse as they were abundant, but some crafty individuals have built their own although they are less sturdy and more likely to break.

The only issue with bikes is that they do not do well on roads with lots of cracks, potholes, or other obstructions. They also do not do well in mud. This makes them of little value for the poorer people who live in less maintained areas. If one is traveling large distances bikes are much more efficient than walking. They are also a status symbol as those with bikes live in areas where the terrain suits them.
