    New biker from Miami

    Hello, just wanted to say hello. I'm getting in to bike riding for some fun, nothing serious and get some exercises in the process .
    Does anyone carry a piece when riding ? Just wondering since things are crazy nowadays.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon

    Welcome to Bike Forums from west central Florida.

    Not me. Its very safe where I ride. Deputies from the sheriff's department, park rangers, and trail volunteers patrol the trail every day. I saw two different deputies and a park ranger on my last ride.

    Now the important stuff. What bike do you ride? Got pics?

    It is hard starting, but you will get into the swing of things. And odds are you will get more comfortable and feel less of a need for self defense. Welcome to BF!

    Welcome to BF! Nobody I know in upstate NY yet packs while cycling. Territorial dogs continue to be a leading threat in my area and I carry my Kryptonite lock for them.

    Never have, never will. When things get that bad I'll just give it up, stay home and find an indoor sport. Stay safe OP.

    welcome to the forum. Yes I carry all the time. On my bicycle I use a crossbreed belly band holster.
    It works well, is comfortable and conceals just fine. Just don't wear a race fit jersey.
