Re: “Safety on the American Tobacco Trail

Several years ago I encountered a group of teenagers on the trail at the spot where the bridge used to be over the trail (near Carolina Circle). They were crowded onto the pavement and only left a narrow sliver for me to cycle through. I didn't slow down much which might have prevented my being attacked. It was probably just a show of bravado and/or contempt on their part though.

I also carry pepper spray in case of attack. It's a larger canister than some I've seen, I bought it at The Bicycle Chain a few years ago when they were still near 9th Street.

Other than that, my experiences on the trail have been drama-free (knock on wood). My biggest gripe so far is cyclists who don't announce "passing on your left" or something similar before suddenly appearing beside you going Mach 2.
