Mountain Bike Bear Spray Holder

Created on .

Read in 1 minute.

Earlier this year, a woman was killed by a black bear on a trail that my partner and I run or bike almost every day! On the day of the incident, we likely ran within a couple hundred yards of her body… needless to say we have been very careful to always carry bear spray.

But how do I carry bear spray on my mountain bike?

When I run, it goes in my vest pocket or I carry it in my hand. The bear spray can is too small to fit in the water bottle holder… so what do I do?

  1. Buy bear spray and holder with belt attachment

  2. Cut off the belt attachment

  3. Drill holes matching that of my bike frame mounts

    Sorry no photos. 😦

  4. Attach the bear spray can holder to the bike frame

  5. Get out and ride!

Does it work?

So far, I have had no issues with the mount. It hasn’t fallen out, been hit by my foot, etc. Let’s just hope I never need to use it! 🤞
