I'm fairly new to photgraphy, and a new member to this site. I've learned so much from this site, and hope you can help me with my latest dilema. I like to combine my two hobbies of biking, and photography. Untill recently I used a small point and shoot tucked into a pouch on the bike frame.. I encounter alot of wildlife on my bike rides(semi-off road), and bought the fx20 to get better close-ups. I have a small padded camera bag that I can strap to the rack over the rear wheel, but am afraid of damaging the camera from the possible bouncing around of a normal ride. Any suggestions or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

squick I like to cycle also although mostly road. Mountain biking I would keep the camera on me using a pack of some kind. I think your body would cushion it better. Here is a link to some by Tamrac. Check the Velocity series.

Squick,

Jer1ivp is right on with this one. I also like to bike and want to take my camera. I think LowPro also makes a nice camera backpack.

Check out

I take my camera with me snowboarding. I just use a waterproof backpack and my camera case is small enough to fit inside it. I fit my tripod in it as well.

thanks everyone for the ideas and links. Winter weather seams to have finally hit ct. , so it looks like I'll have plenty of time to find the right backpack.
