Default Best way to carry a camera when riding

What are people using to carry a camera when riding, I have a Canon 30D and want to have quick access to it preferably on my chest.

I wouldn't carry a DSLR around my neck.
Put it in a padded bag inside the backpack.

Not really a way around it.

It kinda depends on the kind of riding you do. I keep mine in my pack on my back. With all the bouncing around the sled does it is not good on the cameras. Unless you have it insured and dont care if it gets broken. I usually wrap mine in a flannel shirt or something with some padding.

I wouldnt put it on your chest. If you hit something hard and end up hiting your chest on the handlebars thats not goign to be good on you or the camera.

Don't carry it in your pants pocket, last year i got bucked off and my leg landed on the running board right where my camera was and my camera broke in half, so ya i would carry it in your chest pocket or buy a handle bar bag.

Hey Scott- A backpack is the best way, but you might find a handlebar bag or something similar will work better for you.

I would also recommend the Sled Solutions stuff, just be sure to add a lot of padding if you are carrying a DSLR.

If you leave the camera inside your coat around your neck it will have to deal with the moisture from your body. I keep a little point and shoot in my jacket and some days it's frozen half way through the day.

I have a Rebel XTi and I would love to take it every ride, but it's a pain to carry in my backpack (same with the video camera). I might have to look at the bag by Sled Solutions.

I often pack my 30D in my handlebar bag... If it's not close and easy to use, it doesn't get pulled out.

Handlebar bag is hard on them and DSLR's are not as tough as the old 35mm SLR's. Just a fact to work around.

I've kinda come to the conclusion that the body's are expendable. I save way more a year in film costs than the body's cost anyhow. I don't carry 'L' lenses or other extremely high end ones.

I picked up another Sony for sledding.. Capable of motor drive shots; lens goes out to 500 something. Small, easy to use. I LOVE my DSLR's, but there are issues for play pictures.
