What if You Have to Bug Out on Foot?
I walk everyday about 3-5 miles, without gear. At any pace, it would take days to walk 150 miles! In the covered wagon era, they averaged 28 miles per day...that's 6 days to evacuate Portland! If you had a mountain bike and it wasn't winter, you could probably cut that in half...but it's mostly uphill.
The more obvious answer is to get the hell out of a major city, in advance of trouble! Gut reactions to events and increasing warnings may give you time, while things still work. Better yet, don't live in any major city! Cities will be Hell...remember Katrina and New Orleans...and that was after large numbers had already evacuated!
Exercise, walk a lot...with gear...get a good mountain bike...hope it's not winter!
