I always kept a tool kit with, at least, the right size wrenches and screwdrivers I would need to get the drive chain off. And I kept a small bottle of oil premixed for a quart of gas, in case running out of fuel was the problem. But as to this thread's premise, I can walk twenty miles anytime you ask me to, and can ride even a heavy bike at least as far. Just give me regular breaks and let me pace myself. (I was in the boy scouts, I know hiking and biking.)
