Understand from a point of view of puncture prone area, and a quick means of getting out of dodge..

Slicks become a pointless option given the little tread they actually have, and the tires you would have to waste to thorn and glass proof them..

It is cheaper to use off-road tires..

If you are more than 90 min by road or rail where average speeds are about 70-100 km/h..

Your average walking pace is less than 5km and push bike 15-25kph or less as such it will take you longer to get home.

A 90 min travel distance will 4 hours to 48 hours pending on the mode of transport you use..

On a pushbike I would consider having it motorised to save travel time.

I was looking at long distance in my comment.

As for lights something that gives you a solid spot Beam at distance.

May be a row of lights to indicate your length

When you murder a bicyclist may your post come back to haunt you.

I live with a bike riding idiocy of a government and bike riders are on the road instead of using purpose built dual use paths meant for them and for foot sloggers..
Where all vehicles reside nobody on foot or bike unless under escort of pilot vehicles, on their own they are nothing but a pain in de arse and are recipe for disaster...

I bought a neat and inexpensive set up for my bike since it is one of my BOVs in many scenarios.

A place online was selling holders for tac lite sized flashlights and some cheap tac lites as a package deal. I put one on each side of the main support for the handlebars. They are easy to use, can be swapped out for the tac lites I carry EDC and in my GBH as well as my BOB, and otherwise allow me two more compact flashlights when the bike's job is done/if I have to abandon it.
