Dog Cr*p

edited July 2009 in MTB general

Went out last night and within 5 minutes of being on the trail I had ridden through some land mine that some good for nothing pooch had left behind.

I really really hate this sort of thing. At least it was pouring with rain and the smell disipated after a 10 minutes of riding but I think if I ever see anyone let their dog crap on the trail without cleaning it up I would probably give them quite a bit of verbal abuse.

Sigh... anyway, ride was good. Got drenched in the rain though.

/end rant.

    There's quite a lot of horse sh*t on the Chase at the moment :lol: especially on the DH. I think the horses decide to have a dump as soon as they start going uphill.

    It makes the trails interesting though. Shall I ride the rain ruts or go through the horse sh*t?

    Rain and dogshite never a great combination, which is why I end up using mudguards more than I'd like to even in "summer".

    Horse crap I don't really mind. Its no where near as nasty

    :lol: Yeah I guess so.

    Although I wouldn't want to be the rider behind me if I miss and slam the rear wheel into the middle of it. Eww.

    Mine got covered in mud at the last race I did, since then I've got into the habit of tucking the nozzle under the section of the hose where it gets fed through the loops in the shoulder strap. Keeps it out of the worst of the flying mud!

    It's sheep and cow doodah round here. Sheep is OK as it is quite dry and if a piece sticks to your tyre, it usually flirts harmlessly off after a few metres. As for cow, well......

    I deliberately chose a bladder that has a cover on the mouthpiece to stop it getting covered by flying poop. You would have thought covers would be universal, but far from it.
