Bicycle Responce Units
#1
Just wondering if anyone has a Bike unit in their organisation? What do you carry on it? Are blues and twos permitted? What are the best pouches to have? Finally what type of self bike stand do you use? 
Thank you

We got 2 new bikes for our unit recently. They are kept in a vehicle. They are planned to be used for either runs, cycles or just transport around a large event. We got 2 bags for the back of each bike which contain first aid kits and a few other handy bits and pieces to carry on a bike. No blues, just normal bike torch and rear red light which flashes

I was on an ambulance with a French horn option today....  I think they should be standard for all vehicles...  It is so much classier that the standard neenaw

A lot of the vol organisations have bike units. We have 2 bikes, they get used maybe 5 times a year, mostly for st patricks day parade, darkness into light, and other runs. 

Bonus is they can cover short distances faster than a vehicle or foot patrol does, and also can get places vehicles can't. 
Cons, they're actually not good at getting through heavy crowds compared to foot patrols. Sort of a pain to maintain and from a voluntary perspective, we certainly do not have suitable uniforms to wear while on them.

We just got two of these, but we can't use them until we do our advanced cycling course.

I did a few years on Garda mountain bike. Great for city centre and events. Never carried much kit in pannier ... Usually just raingear....always a chance that stuff would be nicked when away from the bike (which was locked with spare cuffs).
Carrying enough on utility belt!!!

Blues and two's not done here.
