By the end of week three I'd be 17 days out on bicycle. I'd only be comfortable moving about 20 minutes before sunrise and 40 after. Low lifes just don't stay awake that long or get up that early. I'm content with 10 to 15 mile stretches at a time. If we feel good about the remote nature of our area we might walk 2 ot 3 miles in mid afternoon rolling the bikes like pack horses, but only after many hours of watching and knowing ahead where we are going. We probably made a good 75 miles first two days before the outlying rural areas starting getting sacred. We might be 300 miles into our trip. Probably a week to the bug out location. Closer we get the easier it will be. If I sense a need I can drop the bikes now and go 10 days way off road and get to my location. Once there I won't be hungry any more or feel like I don't have the fire power or be worried about running into the wrong people.
