    Carry any deterents while riding?

    Anything that you might use if you ran into trouble on the trail?
    I'm thinking about carrying some pepper spray.
    Make that deterrents, with 2 r's.

    Tide or Gain, never Biz. Oh...."deterents"...nevermind.

    Do we really have to see this trainwreck of a thread every month?

    I've got a can of pepper spray. Figured it might be a good idea to have in sketchy areas of town.

    Thats awesome, me too! Although, i dont have air support as i have the M203 launcher attached to the M-16 and i carry a bandolier with HE, Frag and Willy Peter 40mm cartriges. I have all of it made out of Ti to bring the weight down to a mere 26.3 KG

    Mounted to the handlebars:

    Edit: Real answer, no. The only worries I have are some local dogs by one trail and MAYBE some creep hanging out on the trail. I've never seen the latter and only heard about the dogs on the other trail so I don't worry about much.
