    Yes indeed.
    I need to start carrying or wearing some defensive protection riding my bicycle in the morning. Do you have any recommendations? I was looking at wrist spikes.

    I like a hefty stick. Works good with the momentum of a bicycle and it goes in spokes nicely.

    I wear a helmet. What I need is defensive weapon. I ride paths that are in wooded areas where many desperate degenerate mentally disturbed homeless people live in sleeping bags and tents in the side of the bike trail . In the morning it is especially creepy as they wake up and peer up at me on my bike . I want to prepared for an attack and to be ready . I will need to act fast if they jump out of the bushes and jump me. Maybe bike gloves with spikes. But if I fall they might hurt me as well. You think a stick tucked in my jacket? Maybe a loud sounding alarm or horn ?

    A stick and bear spray.

    They will likely police themselves, however. They know that if one of them harasses you or anyone on the trail, the cops will come and clear them all out and they won't be able to come back.

    Or a stun gun. I think I can mount the bear spray and baton on my bike. I hope your right about them policing themselves. But there are a lot of lone wolves out there, police patrol is like NILL. On some weekend mornings the chain gang comes out pickin up trash but in this bleeding heart liberal town homelessness is rewarded with happy handouts and their filth and trash piles that build up on the sidewalks and parks are tolerated and eventually cleaned up by the city and the dirty discusting cycle continues over and over, it’s kinda heartbreaking to me to see people live like wild animals while the filthy rich think it’s just fine. There has been recent attack on a women jogger at 11 am. I’m not going for a concealed weapon license because i don’t want to take it to work with me. Like I don’t have enough accessories for my bike already!! It’s crazy. Helmet, 3 lights, storage rack, water bottle, phone mount, headphones, rain gear, hat and gloves. I love riding my bicycle so much it’s tatally worth all the aggravation! Lol. I just finished this upper pink rain drop panel . Just need to paint the background. Hope your having a nice relaxing weekend! Cheers!

    cosh attached to your frame where the pump would normally be attached. You could even fancy it up to look like a pump.

    Excellent idea DST.
    So far I have aquired a mace gun and a mini signal horn. I could get a retractable baton and camouflage it as a bike pump. That would give me 3 lines of
    Defense.
    I’m really getting into these raindrops these days! I’m completely absorbed . No pun intended.

    I think you've had a real brainstorm!

    You're positively drowning in talent!

    Don't tell me I'm all wet- I don't need people raining on my parade...

    Lololo. I like you. Your so nice !
    I found a magnificent strain I’m sticking with for a while. It’s 75% Sativa 25% Indica. It’s an OCA original with Candyland#8 and Grandaddy purps. Saturated with sugary trichomes . Yum Yum!!
    24%thc with no annoying sativa headband burn I usually get from sativas. It’s Uplifting and mellowing in the perfect balance.

    Funnily enough I experienced a bit of road rage the other night. What with my high flying lifestyle looking after 2 bairns, getting out doesn't happen too often. I was cycling home quite chilled after many joints, beer pitchers and crap pool, and this dude jumps a light in his Golf GTI with me breaking to avoid him. I wagged my finger at him like a scolding parent. Next thing I know he's bombing it down the road ahead of me. Then I see he's stopped and is getting out standing at the side of the bike lane. He tried (not very hard I may add) to kick me as I passed. I simply swerved past him lol. Whilst shouting "grow the fuk up". Its amazing the abuse you get from people in cars. And thats even in Amsterdam. Cycle safe, carry a cosh lol...new tag line for night cycling.

    So very sorry to hear the bad experience DST. I’m glad it wasn’t more serious. My friend riding his bicycle one Day was getting harassed by a car trying to hit him so he took his U bike lock and smashed it on the guys window in self defense. There are a lot of asshole drivers with zero respect for bicycle riders. Be very aware of your surroundings at all times and try to navigate your path by planning it prior to your ride . What time of day is it where your route can have the least traffic, wider roads, better lighting, etc. sometimes it’s better to take the longer less scenic route for safety reasons. Changing up your route is also beneficially so that stalkers aren’t seeing a timed pattern of your schedule and prepare an attack accordingly. Crazy fucked up times and these are ways of survival tactics I use daily. On a brighter note, I finished up some hand made holiday cards. First time ever made cards.

    I made this for a gift for My sister who bought a house by the beach in New Jersey. The photo I took on the Oregon Coast this past summer. I think it was the coastal city is Bandon. I visited so many coastal towns in Oregon but pretty sure it’s Bandon. I got pretty crafty making the frame with real seashells. It came together magnetically and so much better then I ever imagined!

    I just hope she likes it .

    thank you :)
    thank you:grin:
    It was going to be expensive and challenging for me to find the perfect shipping box so I made one myself out of foam board using an exacting knife and t-square ruler. and I am now painting the box .
    It’s ocean themed with her name and address in the water in the front. It’s painted blue ocean all around the entire bottom parameter of the box and I will add a sun and try to add my name and address is a small cloud. I love making original hand painting art package mailings like this. I use to do it a lot. The post delivery people seem to like it too. Sometimes I worry they can’t read the name and address in the water because it blends in pretty good. But i think it will be ok.
