    Bicycle Carry Options

    I like to pocket carry a 642, but it's challenging when riding a bike. What's the best way? I would like to keep the weapon on my person. I usually carry a LCP in the pocket when riding, but it' still not comfortable.

    When I ride, I throw the P3AT in the saddle bag, along with spare inner tube and tire tools and such. Good enough for me.

    Fannypac or any decent holster will work unless you are in skimpy attire.

    I carry my Walther PPK/S in the waist band all the time when riding and I find it comfortable and easy to reach. That said, I'm more of a shorts and T-shirt kind of bicyclist, not a spandex kind of guy.

    I always thought left side OC would be best on a bike. I used to be a full blast roadie (~ 3k miles/year) and figure that OC might get some of the a-hole drivers to relax and share the road a little more.

    Small fanny pack, belly band, shoulder holster (with a light jacket), or IWB/SOB...OMO

    I think attire would make all the differance. I would perfer a shoulder rig given its what i do when I ride my (motor) bike. Ankle holster would be a viable option, but like a handlebar bag would keep your weapon to far away from you to be effective when you needed it.

    I commute with a full size 1911 in a supertuck, so anything is possible.

    Me too! However, I have options. (I bike primarily as a commuter.) When it's cold out (Minnesota, so lots of that) I carry in a shoulder holster under a hoodie and my jacket with both unzipped partially for easy access if necessary. But I usually just Supertuck my 1911 under a tee shirt with an extra measure of concealment provided by my messenger bag. If need be (like at work where it might be weird if they found out I carry), I'll dip into the restroom when I get where I'm going to put my gun in my messenger bag inside one of those old-style GI belt holsters (the kind with a flap that buttons down) to protect the trigger. It's cocked and locked, so it's an extra measure of security, but it makes me feel better because I usually have a bunch of stuff in my bag.

    I guess though, as someone else pointed out, it would depend on your attire and style of riding. Are you a roadie? Commuter? How are you riding, usually? Also, if you are commuting, what is your situation when you get where you're going?

    This reminds me I need to ride my bike more.

    I use a retention holster OWB but covered with a long tee shirt. Works great for me. I think the retention holster is important to consider; if I crash I'd like my handgun to stay connected to me, I really wouldn't care for it to go sliding down the street somewhere.
