Default Small transportation.

I have a vw golf hatchback and i got to thinking it would be a good idea to have an extra way of getting around. One i could preferrably store in the back of the car. I was thinking some kind of scooter perhaps. Something that will work on dirt roads well. What are your thoughts. Also if you have an idea better than the scooter. That would be excellent. Thx for the replies

Here is another viable idea, available nearly everywhere:

There was even a storage bag listed on the same page for OPSEC.

As for the OP's question, I would add a bike rack to the car and get a bike.

Just a suggestion... An inflatable kayak.
I'm getting one for regular use, but if SHTF, especially where I live, water access as an option is invaluable.
Tons of little islands.

Forget inflatables. This one is strong, light, and good for flatwater, (rivers, bays, calmish open water, etc.) and in production. 2:19 video.

Tossed off a roof:
Or you can make your own for $35. 1:35 video.

As a Winter project I bought a new balloon tire bike from Walmart and mounted a gas engine on it Can go faster than I care to go with just coaster breaks to stop with. Was a fun and cheap project but would have used a mountain bike in hindsight.

If you are looking for a SHTF, get out of here bike I'd grab a mountain bike with 29" wheels. If you go with basic components it shouldn't bankrupt you. You definitely would want something that can hop curbs, climb small rocks and go through woods or grass easily. Put a rack on the bag for an extra bag, and you could even carry a fair amount of supplies with you. Maybe a small tent, and some basic supplies for camping. Or just more ammo. 😊
