We have always felt that people who are bicyclists, runners or walkers are particularly susceptible to attacks either by humans or especially dogs. They usually run or walk or cycle and relatively secluded areas at hours of the day when there aren't many witnesses around.
For that reason alone they need some self defense product protection and one of the best on the market today is the Mace Jogger Spray.
It has enough OC spray for 10-20 short bursts up to 12 feet away. This is how to prevent an assault when running, walking or cycling-get a jogger pepper spray. It has a velcro strap that fits onto your hand so it is with you all the time.
