I like to ride a bicycle for exercise and tend ride out in BFE because the traffic is less and I can relax. The problem is that I'm out in the boonies and usually alone. I have a situational awareness for cars but have to except the fact that if some one wanted to they could just run me over. But in the case they just pull in front of me and choose to threaten me I was considering carrying a kel tec 380. I could carry this in a PDA case strapped to my hydration pack. Is this a little too paranoid because all the confrontations I have had have been in the city. The problem is that there is no way to out ride a car to get away if anything dose happen. I also intend to carry some pepper spray (for dogs mostly) also.
