    They are quick and elusive, but it helps increase riding speed when you're trying to catch one.

    This is something I don't really understand. We have to bury our poo to protect the environment yet said environment is full of deer, bears, birds and goodness knows what else that crap in it all the time! How come they don't need to bury theirs??

    It's because they don't eat at Wendy's or Burger King.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    How do you know? I thought bears pulled that stuff out of bins ll the time and I know birds will eat whatever they find.

    I'm sorry, but it's just nonsense. People have been crapping in the woods for thousands of years and as far as I can tell the trees have survived just fine.

    You've apparently never hiked a trail popular with hikers who, like you, refuse to bury their waste. The smell is unpleasant to say the least, and defecating too near a water source will contaminate said water source with bacterial runoff. This is a problem of numbers, not just one dude taking a dump at a comfy vee tree.

    Also note that many animals do bury their feces (many felines). Some animals display it prominently to mark their territory. Raccoons, for example, which happen to transmit a particular type of roundworm in their feces that burrows into your eyes and can eventually kill you if left untreated. Yay!

    Also note that disposal methods depend on the environment. Burying it in the desert does nothing but petrify it. Smearing it on a rock is actually a better choice. The busiest places will REQUIRE you to pack it out. Talk about pleasant. Digging a hole a good distance from water is hardly going to ruin anyone's day.

    And a lot more don't? Ok, if you're on a busy trail and can't walk off it very far then fair enough, but where I live there are not that many people in the very big woods for this to be any kind of problem. If you walked a reasonable distance off the trail it would be pretty unlikely that someone else was going to walk onto the very same spot any time soon.

    And rub your poo in their eyes.

    I sprayed some chunky chilli looking stuff down the side of a big slanted rock in a dry creek bed earlier this year while in the middle of nowhere on a ride. I can supply the GPS coordinates if you'd like take a tour of my fine art work.

    At the trail centre yesterday I started off down a steep decent and as I slid back to get off the back of the saddle my shorts caught on the nose and I was stuck! ;0) Didn't come off but stopped as soon as I could and pulled my shorts up.

    Taking a poop in the woods is much better than crapping yourself during a ride. Find a nice secluded spot, do your thing, clean yourself up with some leaves and finish your ride in comfort. I've had to do it a few times and it sure makes the rest of the ride better.

    Go poop, and wipe with whatever is handy and not poison or thorns. Fir boughs, a handkerchief, leaves, in one case a sock...you gotta do what you gotta do, man...

    You've really NEVER had to take a woodsdump? Hard for me to imagine.
    No big deal.
    Forget the politics. Here in the South East, dig a little cathole, drop your paper into the hole along with your, uh, "deposit". Cover it up and move on with life. It's will be gone in short order.

    Two important things:
    1. Don't use leaves, period.
    2. Always carry some tp, paper towels, etc. Don't get caught having to use one of your socks.
    3. Baby wipes are Da Bomb! Use "flushable" wipes which are biodegradeable.
    4. If you feel you MUST pack it out, or need to satisfy your green weenie riding partners who fear causing an environmental holocaust with a dump, always pack a sandwich baggie to seal up the paper. (My poop ain't coming out. Some greenie wants it out, he can pick it up)

    Okay, so that's 4 important things.

    Oh, and as suggested, move the heck away from the trails or any water source. NOBODY wants to see where you did your business, and our water has enough nasties in it already.
