There was also the air-drop version for Fallschirmjäger. The bikes improved the speed of the unit when landed.
It was packed in a transport case with an attached parachute so that it is not damaged when dropped.
Not very often used but very interesting.
Father-law told me about a fold up bike with a tiny two stroke motor in Syria.Air dropped.

From Die Feldgrauen Reiter, by Klaus Christian Richter (1986), my favorite photo of the the modern Blitzkrieg: bicycles....and horses.

Caption reads, "Ostpreußen. Eine Afufkl.-Abt. bereitet sich auf das >Unternehmen Barbarossa< vor."
