Unfortunately I carry one due to a bee allergy. I wish I could ride bagless, but the addition of the EpiPen makes this a little more difficult. I generally always wear a Camelback because of this to hold the water, tools, and EpiPen. I have tried to go bagless by using a combination of DaKine gripper and a small toptube/ stem bag for phone and gear, but it couldn’t really handle everything. I ended up returning them both
Jeff, my daughter carries an EpiPen with her at all times, including during a ride or run. She has nut and fish allergies. Although it might sound far-fetched that an anaphylactic event from a food allergen could happen in the middle of the forest, she has had this happen during a trail run. Just before the run she came in contact with a peanut butter-contaminated utensil at a friend’s place, then later wiped sweat from her face around the mouth with her hand and instantly had a reaction. At the time she didn’t carry Pens during her runs. Luckily she was near a road and the ambulance was able to get to her easily. Now she goes nowhere without a Pen.
