    I don't, though I have bikes ,need to cary while riding ,"yet" .
    There are loose dogs, and there are questionable characters about all the time .
    If you know where they are and can avoid them that is the best avenue .
    However , if they cannot be avoided as in your own neighborhood then you've got a reason to cary.
    I only use a shoulder holster if I'm carrying period. Why ?
    Muscle memory . it is where i is and there is no where else for it to be found.
    If I am knocked off the bike or crash, the gun is with me .
    In the Los Angelus national forest cyclists and joggers have fallen prey to mountain lion , I have had my own experiences with them my self thank you very much .
    Bear can run ay 35 MPH and 35 MPH is a real push for a bicycle rider for very long on good roads .
    Any thing running is an attractant to predators .
    Cats love the chase so do wolves and bear .
    It depends on conditions, which are changing, and game is getting scarce.
    What may have been true in the past, is all a lie now, and in the future. More druggies and homeless and other desperate people and animals .
    If you think it an unnecessary security issue ,throw away the spare tire out of your car. Its only wasting space/weight .

    I will go for a bike ride at dusk quite often looking for skunks that are close to my property. I carry a .22 in my hands across the handle bars. Works well for what i need.

    I was doinh this one night and got a phone call so i was talking and riding when i seen a skunk in the ditch about to dart into heavy cover so i bailed off and shor with one hand. Got him though. The person i was talking to just laughed and said that sure sounded like me.
    Ps. I am very rural and no neighbors anywhere close.

    Congrats on the skunk!

    I do a walk around at dusk with the dog looking for skunks. Have only shot a couple. Couldn't get a shot at a couple more. Only was without an appropriate gun once, which was the time the dog got skunked and I wasn't able to catch the little bugger and slay it.

    I dislike skunks about the place.

    there's a company that makes bikes (and bike racks that will mount on most bikes) made for hunting and fishing. It's rack on the back of the bike that carries a long item (gun, rod, bow or whatever else you may want to carry). Cogburn Outdoors

    thought people might be interested....

    Yep, and a nifty place to put the tool bag. I was just starting that the bike in question sparked the question. Thanks.

    Firing from a bike seems pretty easy, just stand up with the bike between your legs. Transporting a firearm though, these two pictures are the only ways I'd do it. The first is to keep to the theme, but the second is what I'd probably do. As someone who's done a distance on bicycles before, it's no good to have something that gets in the way when pedaling or makes the handlebars heavy and unbalanced.

    And if you want to buy this one, here's the website I found the picture at.

    I believe it's fake, but always fun to watch...
