Bicycles
  • -The bicycle’s importance in the Vietnam War was that it could carry a lot of items to the troops in bigger portions.
  • -The VC and the NVA would carry up to 400 lbs on bike threw the Ho Chi Minh Trail.
  • -It allowed the NVA to get the weapons and supplies faster then if people were carrying it on foot. Plus it was the only thing they had.
  • -They didn’t have much other technology to carry these supplies threw the woods so they resorted to bikes.
