I keep one permanently trapped inside the map pocket on the top of my bar bag. Far enough away from anything ferrous which might influence it.
My bar bag has a loop for the compass, one of those small flat ones with a cover, but I prefer the larger lensatic compass, and one of those map measurement devices. Which reminds me, I need to remount my handlebar bag on the Trek when I get the winter overhaul done. I have thought about going to Harbor Freight and getting a sextant, from time to time. For the running fix.

No compass on the handlebars but I do carry a lensatic compass in the handlebar bag, but I yet to ever use it because I've never gotten so lost I needed one! In fact even when I use to hike I never used the compass, but I always carried one just in case.
