Post apocalyptic cycling

I have been watching the post apocalyptic film The Road. It’s an allegorical story about a boy and his father trying to reach the coast while witnessing the barren world and humanity. Rather good actually in a depressing sort of way.

I know it’s nothing to do with the point of the story, but these two are walking and pushing their stuff around in an old shopping trolley, which can’t be helpful. If only they had had touring bikes with panniers (maybe even a trailer), they could have gotten to the coast easily (nice empty roads at the end of the world apparently). Also, bikes would have helped outrun the bands of cannibals, unless of course they were caught on a 25% uphill and chopped up looking like tits.
