Those are some decent ideas. I was thinking pocket holster and stuff the whole thing in a back jersey pocket but was worried about security during falls.I think Dara (and I'm sure many others) makes an actual holster that clamps on to the bike frame. Seems like a terrible idea to me. Which really isn't a "concealed" carry anyway. You might as well mount a turret between the handlebars.
I carried a small single stack .380 (my typical carry if I do during the summer) when I went last weekend because I'd never been there before and it's in a relatively rural area. I had it in my backpack, which I didn't like too much either. I don't like not having control of it on my body. But, you also have to consider something that is drop safe for if and when you fall. I haven't started looking into it in depth yet, but I know that some companies (like 5.11, probably) make "tacticool" belly band type holsters that I think are often used for jogging. I suppose you could always use a standard shoulder holster or a high-retention hip holster, but I expect that would be very uncomfortable.
the trail I would ride is 45 miles through the middle of Everglades nowhere where alligator spotting is a virtual certainty at some point, so...I’d feel much better strapped
