This is very basic and do-able way to eat when you have very little money.


If you have a small garden or know how to forage for wild foods, you can supplement this no-frills budget plan and thrive.

I am doing a few searches... but for now...


The newest, not really a bicycle, but these threads might be interesting...






As a side note, an e-bike could be a nice addition, that doesn’t use gas, as long as you have electricity to charge it.  I do not have any experience with them, whether or not they can be used without electricity.



Here is a couple links to reviews on various e-bikes.
