Over here in the Old Countries, not everybody has a car[1], but the city is fairly bicycle-friendly. So now that more members are getting their own stuff, the issue of safe equipment transport on bikes is coming up, in particular what to do with shields. Any tips/experience in the area would be welcome.

[1] At one practice I asked who had a car. Of the 10 people present, one did - but it was 5000 miles away.

Try making a backpack for it. Like two shield covers sandwiched together with arm straps (make straps adjustable)

I see your bike trailer and raise you a bike war chariot:

But not everybody wants to attach such a thing to their bikes. The backpack idea sounds good, though. Also usable in subways and for carrying at events.
