 It didn't look like the bear chased the dude. It looked like the dude saw the bear and then got scared and rode straight down the hill. When he realized it wasn't chasing him, he climbed back up the hill.

 Keep calm and let the bear quite ¡¡¡

 His buddy handled this the right way, bear will almost always make a false charge 1st. Momma wants to scare off the predator & get back to her cub as quick as possible. Last thing she wants to do is fight with a cub close at hand. Trust me i live in bear county, largest Grizzlies in the world are named after the island i live on. Kodiak

 This ain't enduro. This is bearduro. Or endubear.

 New Enduro platform. Each rider trains a bear to chase another rider, he who lives wins. two race season then it will be called "all mountain" again.
  • + 38
 The look of disgust from his buddy when he finally makes it back up the hill is priceless. Kind of feel for the runner, I bet this comes up around the campfire for years. And you know who is walking to the cooler for the next round. Did I say bear bitch? I meant beer bitch.

 Flare gun ! Bears TRIP out on flare guns.... they dunno wtf to do with themselves when you bust a ball of fire at them and all the hissing near them. Its also VERY easy to pack in your bag and can come in handy in other situations as well.

Bear spray wont do a thing , by the time your close enough with bear spray your already in trouble.

I'm not kidding you , first hand experience on many occasions ..... flare guns !

A nice .44 would be nice if Canada wasn't so f*cking gay about it Smile

 He is so incredibly lucky this was not a predatory attack. If this was he'd be very dead. It also could have very easily been. Moving target that looks similar to a animal, she get fixated, and doesn't stop until you're chow. He should have treed himself. That would have been best since he had no time to asses the situation. If you come up to a bear on the trail and you can visibly see it, and it can see you. NEVER just up and run. That is a very last resort.

 Xterain6 As right as you are .... common sense goes right out the window when you see a bear charging down the hill at you.

 hahaha AaGro, bear-bitch?

Cmon guys, everyone sat behind their keyboards saying how they'd stand up to a charging bear or take the time to pull a gun on it, this guy did well, he moved quick, first time i saw a bear up close i lost my shit.

 I would in no particular order Scream like a girl, shit my pants, suck my thumb and cry... Oh and probably smack Curtisf for pissing the thing off with a flare gun for crying out loud... Flare gun really? This ain't Captain Phillips M*thrF*ckr Smile

 I almost landed on a bear in Whistler on Schleyer, got it on gopro too: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhMQi3EfQe8 (dont have to watch the whole video if you want, its the last 30 seconds). its definitely not a grizzly though
  • + 6
 Dude, that bear landing must have scared you. When I was in whistler I was riding high up on the mountain on my own and I was terrified a bear was going to literally catch me with my pants down went i went for a wee off the trail.

 Difference in human behaviour during Wild animal encounters or witnessing natural disaster like tornados:
Big Bang > late 1990s: "let's get the hell out of here! Gimme the rifle! Food and water, climb a tree!"

These days - "are you filming that?"
  • - 13
 LOL yeah the bear musta thought these dudes were "enduroing". Then backed off when it saw the open-face Styrofoam lid & backpack & thought "nah, better leave 'em. They might just be "cross countrying" or "all mountaining".

I tell you what though, if that were me, out "freeriding", an' I rolls up on some grizzly, I jus' throws my dirty panties at 'im & keep on.

Anyone know what a bear's typical disposition is to "freeriding" & "downhilling"?

 Is there something wrong with saying "Keep calm and let the bear quite ¡¡¡" ?. We would have the relax of the second rider, we could continue the riding without disturbing the nature and all the animals inside in the woods. Thanks bros.

 Ryan-97- my dad is a frontier of bearsmart in Alberta as well as a BRTL (bear response team leader) with fish and wildlife. Haha climbing a tree may not be a your best bet but being that she was already at full balls to the wall charge this guy had no other choice. Haha if she saw him ride away and snapped into hunt mode he's be f*cked. Climbing a tree gives you more of a chance, cause you'll never out run a bear. Also that article is referring to black bears, this is a grizzly. Black bear (unlike grizzlies) are designed for climbing. That doesn't mean a grizz can't but they will opt out if they can. Also being this was a defence attack she'd see no need to climb after you. Haha I've heard endless stories of guys treeing themselves and it saving there lives.

 Xterain6, Black bears are easily scared and run away. Grizzlies get pissed off if you get too close and can charge you if they're in a bad mood. Its the other way around. Grizzlies kill and black bears rarely ever do.

 @ Kroky777 - I'm from England and have never even seen a bear and even I know I'd shit in my pants so bad that the bear wouldn't want to have anything to do with me.
  • + 2
 dang scaaaaaaarrrrry!! I think that dude did the best thing possible, I think he was kind of lucky though that soon as he ran down hill the bear lost sight of him and gave up...if he was in an open field it could've been much different. if you can run out of sight from the bear that may be your best bet. Also I think if he attempted to pedal away on his bike he would've been toast, pedaling broadside to a bear charge is not a good idea Again in that situation there's no time to think, you just do!!
  • + 3
 It is true they can climb a tree but More difficult the larger they are. But they can also reach up 10 to 12 feet vertically so climb fast. Not called U. u . Horribilis for no reason.

 @whatyousaid running is definitely not the best thing to do. stand your ground by acting big and loud and back away slowly. running is what prey does, you dont wanna be prey.

 Yes. Bears can climb trees. Fast... slow... It don't matter. If they want to get to you they can.

  • + 3
 @ old man eggy, Bears hunt through the dump and eat diapers so your theory really depends what you had for lunch. But if you have a buddy with you (dosen't matter if he is a world class sprinter) if you get the head start, I guarantee you can run faster on solid ground than he can on slippery shit.
  • + 7
 Actually they both did the wrong thing. If a grizzly is charging, most are bluffs to scare a potential threat away or in this case to remove a potential threat from her cub, the proper course of action is not to run, don't make loud noises or eye contact. Do back away slowly talking in a quiet voice to let the bear realize that you are not a threat. Grizzlies are the fastest land animal in North America, over short distances, they can climb trees very well no matter what their size & actually do have pretty good eyesight. There are not too many things that can withstand an attack from a mature grizzly, if a full on attack is imminent fight back as hard as possible & if you go down try to protect the back of your neck.

 Just a couple things.... 1.Bears can run faster downhill then you can ride, doesn't matter what the topography or vegetation. 2. In my 33 years of cycling, 29 years of them on mtn bikes, I have experienced many bear-human interactions and many of them in the years before bear spray. Running into a bear is scary....but it is nothing compared to the fear of a large stalking cat. You never know they are there and they are far more agile, faster and will toy with your mortality just for fun. 3. DAMN NATURE...YOU SCARY!!
  • + 17
 Fuck cats... I am scared to know how many have seen me and I have never seen one myself while riding. I have had 2 bear encounters that were not events. The one that wigged me out was the moose.. They are no joke.
  • + 16
 Moose are scary as crap.
  • + 5
 Yep, but if you decide to run anyway, downhill is your best bet.
  • + 14
 I've been charged by a large bull moose. That is one creature you don't mess with. They are like 1500lb honey badgers.
  • + 4
 No kidding. I was riding with a girlfriend a couple of years back when almost hit a moose, going warp speed down a trail. That would not have ended well.
  • + 4
 MOOSE: I was riding a trail in Alaska, came around a corner and suddenly was 15-20' from a huge mother moose with two young calves. She charged me at least halfway. I stopped immediately, jumped off my bike, kept eye contact, then quickly and quietly walked my bike back in the opposite direction. She stopped charging but continued to follow me another 20-30' down the trail before falling back.

Was scary as sh- but most importantly, she and her calves were on the same side of the trail. Had I slipped in between them blindly coming around that corner, separating her and them, I may have been super F'ed.
  • + 12
 I had a 80-100lb bobcat stalk me on the hike up my downhill trail... Motherf*cker kept his distance until I got about 3/4 up and came at me fast.

I've never thrown my $2500 bike as a weapon, but that day I sure as hell did. Followed by my helmet, and then my pack. Scary as shit.
  • + 3
 Well, it looked like a bobcat to me. Later on I found out that they don't get that large, and what I encountered was a mountain lion or a cougar. Either way. Fuck that shit. Not without my ACR 6.8 or Glock 20. Lol
  • + 3
 Grizzlies are no good but cougars are really no joke I agree.. Another thing to watch for is wolves, there's some shit about no human deaths death caused by a wolf in 100 years or something. But the more they're becoming common and living in a urban-wild land interface would be something to take seriously. There was a cyclist in Idaho last summer that went toe to toe with one:

 It's easy to criticize his reaction but memory and organization become less available to the brain in moments of panic. Skills like how to deal with a large predator will be more likely to be carried out as planned if practiced first. Everyone has a differently sensitized nervous system, some freeze, some bolt and some scream and lose their beans. As has been said, general rule is don't run from a predator or make dramatic movements. For bears know the difference between a grizzly and a black bear. Bear spray does work in many circumstances despite what some said above.
I was first charged in the early 90's while backpacking on the border of Height of the Rockies/Peter Lougheed Park. I remember all my fantasies of how I could protect myself going out the window and just feeling helpless. You can talk all you want, but a fully grown grizzly will be the one who ultimately decides the outcome. Luckily bears tend to not want contact unless habituated, triggered or forced. Read Herrero's book if you really want more info on safety in bear country (Bear Attacks: Their Causes and Avoidance by Stephen Herrero www.amazon.ca/dp/0771040598/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_xVmdtb17A2H0Y). Glad these guys are ok and have some really rare footage as solace for the moment of terror.
  • + 9
 I read that when I lived in BC. Scared the shit out of me. Had me singing in the forest for months. Great book, and you are right, there is no fool proof way of getting out of a situation like this, the bear will decide, just don't make matters worse by panicking. The only thing that scared me more was the Blair Witch Project, had me hearing children when I was riding alone in the forest.
  • + 3
 There's summers when workers in the backcountry of National Parks (in America) are required to yell "hey bear" or the likes every 10 seconds. I agree with snl, become educated when in an area bears frequent and practice caution.

 snl1200 your comments clearly don't fit in here on Pinkbike. You mistakenly gave the guy a free pass for riding off the trail and crashing. You didn't even give mention to the bears nice rack with a comment like "I'd ride that!"

I am disappointed.

 Sorry eyun. "Looks like a session", "$50 for a can of bear spray...WTF...I been using cat urine I home milked for years and never had any problems", "Ironic comment complaining that pinkbike mentions wheel size and enduro too often even though I just mentioned it and both comments mentioning it got the most likes on a story that has nothing to do with either?" ... any of those redeem me?
  • + 1
 Wayners I can empathize with the fear. I remember re-reading some of the book while hiking in east Glacier National Park, only a couple miles from where some of the more graphic attacks in the book took place. That day we had fired off a banger to alert two Grizzly's up the ridge from us on our way to our intended campsite at Elizabeth Lake. When we got there we were re-routed by rangers as they were posted up waiting to terminate a bear that had been aggressive to some campers who had left a cut watermelon on the picnic table overnight (Sucks the bear had to be put down because of stupid human error and ignorance). They rerouted us to another backcountry campsite about 2 miles away. I remember re-reading a few chapters that night and not sleeping particularly well. However, after finishing the book, I remember feeling way more at ease in some situations and more aware in others (like around habituated bears). I don't live in Grizzly country at the moment, but have and when I did I would always shout cattle calls coming into blind corners or cruising through tight bush, especially when following a stream where the bears senses might be distracted. I'm cool sounding like an idiot if it can keep my face and skull intact.

 a good deterrent is if a bear is more interested in you than he should be, is to stand still and make yourself appear as big as possible. the suggestion is to hold you bike above your head as high and extended as possible (for as long as physically possible of course). additionally, you should not leave your bike. always have it in hand as if things do go sideways you can use it as a shield/barrier between you and the bear and/or pick a safe enough moment to mount up and ride (running is a desperate move so ensure that your getaway will be a success before taking your eyes off of the bear for the escape. they can move real fast!) ... and of course you have to be strong and hope for the best!

 I'm not Braveheart but you can tell he is not impressed with us at all. Seen him a few times but never that close. Like I said he was not interested, almost bored in the eyes. Probably just getting berries and half empty redbull cans. Smile

 Grizzlies are a fact of life when riding around Fernie, I know two guys that were chased a substantial distance two years ago by a lone Grizzly...He wasn't serious, just wanted them the f&^% outta his territory. I always ride with Bear Bells on the bikes and the dog along with Bear Spray on the pack strap, you of course all know how to tell Grizzly shit from Black Bear shit....the Grizzly shit has bells in it (drum roll please).

I do have a Grizzly story of my own from a few years back, my son and I were riding (sans dog for a change) and were on a long downhill stretch maybe a half kilometre from the car. We passed a couple of Brits pushing up the hill, nodded and rode on by, just as we got to the cars they literally passed us yelling something we couldn't understand. 20 or 30 yards up from where we passed them a Sow Grizzly with a Cub walked out on the trail we had just come down...we didn't see her at all, just focussed on the trail at speed I guess, we had to have passed within feet of her but with the bells she knew we were there and was used to people being around so just waited for us to pass and carried on her way...the Brits were pretty freaked out though, others saw her that day too and she hung around the area for a few weeks with no issues, they just don't like to be surprised.

 Same thing happened to me in Banff in the 90's, and as in this one the bear did not actually finish his charge. We came across a grizzly (we were not making enough noise in bear country) from about 30 feet away. I stopped, looked at the bear, spoke calmly to my riding buddy, we we rode slowly to the next rise, and then high tailed it outta there! Glad to say even though I was shitting my pants we acted the right way.

 I heard if you go out in the woods you tie a bell around your neck and spray yourself in pepper spray. To identify a black bear their shit has berries and such in it. A grizzly's shit is full of bells and smells like pepper.

 44 mag min for a bear IMO and even that is a bit light in a true charge. That was a pretty legit charge and one that most bear experts don't really ever see or talk about. I used to be a fish bio in AK. I've had so many stare downs and bluff changes that they stopped being much of a concern. Hold your ground and the bear will yield and go around. But I've been charged like the video once. Totally different experience. It happens so fast and totally without warning. The natural reaction is to get out of there quick and I'm not sure it's the wrong one. In my case, the bear charged just like the video and I had about 2 seconds to backpedal towards my partner who was carrying the 12ga. Thebear charged him. He shot at 8 feet away and aparently missed, but the bear veered off and missed him by 2 feet. He ran to me and the bear came one more time stopped at 30 feet, woofed at us and took off with her 2 cubs. The whole incident lasted maybe 10 seconds.

 Sounds fucking sketchy! I think I would have shat myself. hunt in grizz country a lot but have never been charged. I agree the bigger the gun the better for bear but its a pain to lug around a huge gun everywhere.
  • + 2
 Canada has restrictive handgun laws but starter pistols/bear bangers are perfectly legal for carry. I have a rotary launcher I carry all the time that can launch bangers or flares. If you were actually riding solo in serious bear territory and had a firearms permit, and a valid sportsman license, just carry a decent carbine and if anyone asks say you're a hunter who bikes. There are quite a few carbines/rifles available on the canadian market that are compact enough and light enough to carry.

Ironically black powder muzzle loaders don't count as firearms here so you could always try one of those as a pistol... good luck loading it while the bear charges you though. Wink

 Deeeight has it right. A carbine is the ideal choice honestly. I wont comment on your firearm laws as it's not really my business how you and your elected officials decide to run your country.
  • + 1
 At Kroky777 - Yes, they make virtually every dog like noise except a howl. They woof and huff loudly when agitated. It is not a comforting sound.

Kanter - Speaking from my own personal experience, you won't have 21 shots to put that bear down. 2 or 3 max. If you watch the video, that bear is coming fast when he sees it and the attack is virtually silent. If you are going to shoot that bear, you have to draw (I carry from a chest harness in the rare cases where I am riding in grizzly country) which takes at least a full second. You'll then have less than 2 seconds to shoot. 2-3 shots maybe. A true full charge is not like the classic--oh hey there's a bear up ahead, lets get big, make noise and be prepared if he decides to check us out. A true attack happens unbelievably fast. A short barreled 12 ga with slugs is the best thing by far in that situation. Short rifles are good too. I carry a S&W scandium 44 when I need lightweight. 12ga with pistol grip when I am fishing.
  • + 2
 a gun in that situation would've done no good unless he was riding with it mounted to his handlebars....even if he was riding with it holstered there would've been no time to draw...another 2 seconds and that bear was on him!!
  • + 4
 You certainly can kill a bear with a 10mm handgun, if only you can get it to stop mauling you for a few seconds so you can get a headshot.
  • + 0
 I might get one or two shots off as its running at me, but I will unload it into its belly or head while its chewing on me. I use the Diamond D holster on my chest. www.diamonddcustomleather.com/Chest_Holsters.php A charge like in the video is pretty rare. Usually you see the bear and have time to draw on it and unload, but it is true... not all the time. In all my bear encounters and I've had a few, I had time to draw and I was ready with bear spray in one hand and gun in the other.
  • + 1
 Yeah - It's really rare. I'm thinking about 1 in 10,000 occurence. But, its also far and away the most likely charge to lead to actual contact so its the one you really need to be prepared for. I totally changed my approach after my attack and I had had literally thousands of interactions with bears before that. For me, its lethals only and the gun has to be immediately ready. Otherwise I don't bother with bringing one. If I bring deterrent rounds, I'll load them when I encounter a bear in a more normal circumstance where we have time to get ready and deal with the situation. The reason I won't go 10mm is it doesn't have enough energy. Energy counts biggest when stopping a bear. Those doubletap 230grains only have 500 ft lbs, which is less than most .357 mag rounds. I can get 1400-1500 in many production 44 mag rounds. A 12ga can get you to 2500 easily.
  • + 0
 The 10mm Double Taps have 1120. I've taken the 41mag, 44mag, and 10mm and shot all bear loads into a pile of magazines. The 44mag only went trough a few more magazines. I know this isn't the best test, but the 10mm is an amazing gun IMO. It has really been overlooked in the past, but may people are seeing its potential. I run a 4.6" barrel now and will be upgrading to a 6.1" soon. The extra 1.5" barrel should get me up to 1300 or so.

  • + 2
 If you're going to argue draw times and compare holsters I will point out that a slung carbine isn't any slower to access and definitely will stop a grizzly. If you need to use special bullets and longer barrels to try and claw a light handgun caliber into medium size game category, then you're basically admitting you picked the wrong gun to begin with. If you actually expect to stop an angry grizzly with a gun, you want a proper rifle or carbine (and no pissant .223/5.56N crap), a shotgun with slugs, or a VERY large bore handgun (.50AE, .460 or .500 S&W, etc).

And Kanter, you're wrong about the double tap 10mm... you're unfortunetly confusing velocity with energy... in ballistics, especially when dealing with large flesh/dense bone and a lot of inertia behind it... you want massive bullet energy not massive velocity. Double tap's own literature on the 10mm 230 gr hunting load which they claim as the hardest hitting/deepest penetrating 10mm known is only 641 ft-pounds at the muzzle. .50AE is triple that. The .460 and .500 Smiths are even higher and entering into the category where .308 Winchester is.
  • + 1
 Who is going to carry a .50AE, .460, or .500 Smiths when they ride on a bike? The only handguns that are reasonable to carry are the 10mm, 357, scandium 41, or scandium 44 mag. Anything bigger and you are carrying too much weight IMO. I just choose to carry a 10mm. No one is arguing who's gun is bigger. No one is even arguing. This is a great discussion.
  • + 2
 What kind of human are you who complains about weight but is carrying a gun at all ?! If you can't carry three pounds to save your life, stay out of the woods.
  • + 1
 When I do my backcountry BIKING trips my pack usually weighs 30+ lbs. Thats a lot of weigh to carry on a bike. Hiking is another thing. I would carry a 454 Casal hiking and my pack can weigh 50+ lbs. Weight has always been a concern when biking.
  • + 1
 Unless you are hunting a bear, using a gun as a deterrent is one of the worst things you could do. I know seasoned hunters that confess to getting shaky in the legs when they have up close encounter with grizzlies. Try to aim a gun at a charging bear...At 100 yards at full charge (likely the bear will be alot closer) with a pump action shotgun you may get off 3 shots & be lucky to hit with one. A hand gun you may get off more shots but could you hold the gun steady enough to get a kill shot? Doubtful. A wounded bear is about the last thing you want to see or come up against as now that wounded bear is coming after you...You will lose.Your best & safest bet is bear spray.
  • + 2
 I agree completely. Bearspray is the first thing I pull out. I rode almost 2200 miles last year and I saw only a few bears. A few years ago I saw 4 bears in one 15 mile ride. I live on the edge of Glacier Park and we see bears a lot. Most of the time a gun is just for scaring the bear. I few shots in the air and they are gone, but not always.

Missed riding by two bear cubs by bout 3 secs this summer (didn't see 'em but by buddy rode along side of them for a bit- he came around a corner and startled them).

 Bears can't run down hills very well due to their forelegs being shorter than their hind legs, so if you must run/ride, go down hill.

 Having chased bears down very steep hills in helicopters I can assure you that is very bad advice. A grizzly will run downhill faster than you ever will.

 Uhhhh, YES. A grizzly will run any direction much faster than you!
