  • Go Means Go! Bear curious? Cycling in bear country. | GO MEANS GO
    predator and victim feeling the burn Carrying bear spray A spray can of bear deterrent is one of the best things you can have in the woods to protect yourself It s cheap It is also light enough that it should be carried on your rides at a quick draw location and ready to use Though I shouldn t have to say it to anyone except maybe the guy with his helmet on backwards DO NOT APPLY LIKE BUG SPRAY Here s a primer on bear spray from the Canadians I want to stress the importance of having quick and easy access to your bear spray It won t do you any good in your pack Bears can sprint extremely fast and on top of that have a lot of momentum while going You should have it at your fingertips and make sure it s ready to fire Read the manufacturer s information about the range about 5m and burst length usually the can only has 6 8 seconds of spray in it If you don t want to carry it on your hip a handy carry option would be the Mountain Feedbag by Revelate Designs or the Bartender Bag by Randi Jo Fab I have mounted mine on my stem You should also ensure it can t accidentally be sprayed I know of a pilot here in Alaska that won t allow bear spray on her plane after a passengers safety got knocked off and let loose the contents in the cockpit She crashed the plane thankfully surviving Say it then spray it Most bear spray is effective at around 5 meters Announce your presence HEY BEAR loudly though not aggressively while raising your arms is a good way to do it If you are downwind from the bear and it can t smell you it may be a little curious as to what two wheeled animal you might be Just keep talking at a loud volume and I d suggest dismounting your bike Don t approach or run from the bear If the bear keeps approaching and especially if it breaks into a run make sure your safety is off of the bear spray and spray low at the mouth and eyes Hopefully you re upwind but don t let it affect your decision to use it it may be your only chance Lethal vs non lethal bear protection Though pepper spray has been proven effective over 90 in multiple studies many still prefer a side arm shotgun or rifle to carry when going into bear country Some want both I will say that whatever your chosen method may be you must have it readily accessible and know how to use it I have carried both into the woods thankfully having to use neither If a firearm is your preference size does matter My caliber of choice is 44mag in a pistol on my hip though a shotgun with slugs or buckshot is better My pistol weighs in
