Rick.... Mountain bikes man. I have the bikes in case my jeep wont be use full to me. I plan on building trailers to attach to the bikes to pull either my kids, and other stuff like the bags and dogs. lol. Theres plans online you can follow to build really dope ones. This goes back to me talking about the bags needing to be close to the body incase your on a bike. CHECK OUT THIS LINK ---> WELDED BIKE TRAILER <---- wicked cool and something I need to build over the winter for the bikes. I know riding a bike with a 60pound bag would suck.

I had always toyed with the idea of using a canoe to float down river ifpush came to shove... But its too impractical at the moment. Too many family members to take care of. But if i was solo, then hell yes i woulduse a canoe or Scanoe or raft... Hell... Might even be fun.

One thing to consider with bikes are the motorized recumbents. They are very comfortable, sit lower to the ground, and give a lot of options on how you run them. We have a two wheel Lightfoot motorized recumbent as well as a very heavy duty Lightfoot recumbent trike that also has a motor on it. The motor gives you the option of running totally quiet just pedalling or running with the motor as an assist on hills and such or even just running with the motor. The two wheel flies, I know I've hit 40 on the flat with the engine and pedal power and the trike is a brute that tops out at about 30 on the flat but we can carry well over 150 pounds of gear on it or pull a trailer. It's hard to figure out the average MPG because it varies between the bikes and the riders (some pedal more than others) but the two wheeler has averaged around 275 mpg for me so far and the trike is closer to 225. Even with the motor running it is surprisingly quiet.
