    My Ride today. Passion removed by jackwagon rider

    Dropping in on some smooth out and back single track this morning, I was tooling along when my wife texts me about results of my daughter's dr appt. (Flu has made its presence known this week in my household)

    I pull off to the side to respond when a rider comes up behind me. He pulls off as well and we exchange pleasantries.

    He then rides about 15 feet from me, gets off his ride, then proceeds to water the grass if you will.

    I couldnt believe the chutzpah on this jackwagon!

    I let him pedal off then I went the other way. Beautiful day marred by a thoughtless dude who couldnt ride another 1/4 mile back to the trail head and a restroom.

    your right, it disgusts me when humans urinate in forests. I mean, animals are one thing, but humans, c'mon...

    I'd be more mad at the person pulled over texting, to be honest. Though your child's health is an understandable concern.

    Sometimes, I wonder why I ever started posting here.

    ******s on the trail and apparently here too.

    Dont worry, I wont let the door hit me on the way out.

    so as a result of seeing someone pee on a trail, you've lost your passion for bike riding?

    sounds to me like you need to get back on your road bike and well....keep riding!! I am sure you have never thought where people pee when backpacking....how about big wall climbing...or I bet all those guys in the peloton pull over and use the restroom. He PEE'D BFD it's a natural thing...in nature!! At least he didn't do it while you were talking I bet you never pass gas in public either!?

    I knew a guy on my soccer team in college who took a piss while still in the game. He just whipped it out and kept running down the sideline. Crazy nut.

    A few years back someone posted how they did the peloton pisser. A rather acrobatic feat if you think about the balance required.

    To the OP: was he facing you with a grin or facing away just going about his business? There may have been ulterior motives...

    Riding requires hydration....Hydration = having to piss. It's all part of the game, dude! Good thing he didn't have the roll of TP out taking a trailside dump

    my day was ruined too!

    Went for a ride, smooth singletrack, great weather, not another rider in sight...everything was going well, but soon I got the "call of nature" if you know what I mean. Lucky for me, I often ride this trail, and there is a convenient spot up ahead to throw down my bike and "water the grass".

    I come around the corner and there is jackwagon texting on his cell phone, right in the middle of the path (ok, a little off to the side.) I squeezed by him, said "hi" and then decided, what the hell, he's texting, I'm going to take a piss. Screw him.

    I was soo angry, I could barely pee, needless to say, damn texter ruined my damn day.

    OP was just angry he didn't meet up with this guy in the restroom. OP is a possible cottager.

    One day I was pedaling up the nice hill and there were two dudes, one of them was leaking. Leaking dude sees me and finishes his stuff hastily and(probably) prematurely. When I reached the top of the hill he is going: "Geesh, I though you are a girl, glad you are not" Me: "In the same situation I would actually prefer a girl, to each his own"

    Pee is organic.

    Anyone remember the "South Park" episode where Kyle and Cartman's in the pool and all the little kids jump in and turn it golden and they have a fit? I didn't think this applied to mtbrs and singletrack but I guess I'm wrong.

    I have been waiting for a thread about this! I have been too much of a pansy to start one.

    So whats the etiquette for peeing on the trails? (not on the trails, off to the side!(thats where those random puddles come from!))

    And dont say you dont do it. I know all of you weight weenies are happily losing those few grams on solo rides.

    For the record, i do it privately. I walk off the trail and i pee downhill listening for others. I wouldnt wanna disturb anyones day or anything! Or look like a hobo in new york.

    I agree with the o.p. that peeing right infront of a stranger is a little uncalled for. But i wouldnt let it wreck my day.

    So whats the deal? Is this frowned upon? Fill me in.

    and urine is sterile for christ's sake. not "nasty" like most people think. if i HAD to chose between getting spit on and pissed on (same amount of fluid for arguments sake) i'd take the golden shower.

    Ya gotta do what ya gotta do. My best trailside piss was at the top of the mountain on a bright, sunny day. Pulled off the trail, nothing more glorious than pissing over the cliff and into the valley....

    You can't use the word "chutzpah" in this context. It comes from Hebrew, and native Hebrew speakers make no bones about watering the grass (or asphalt for that matter) wherever the mother Nature calls them, no matter who and of what gender is around.

    I ride solo, early in the morning. If I've got to take a leak, I just stop on the trail and whiz right over the top tube. I've never even given that a thought. Gosh I hope I haven't made any biker or hiker cry.

    It looks like he lost his passion for us. Probably influenced by the comments that not a single one of us would have been bothered by it. I guess I am a jaded lowlife as well because it would only have bothered me if he had walked across the trail and used the tree right beside me and then I would not have been offended so much as annoyed.

    I try to be sure there is no one right by me and go behind a tree if possible. One of my medications makes me pee a lot so when I gotta go I gotta go. Plus the trails I ride don't have Porta Pots in the woods.

    I pee in the woods quite a bit. There is no restrooms at my trailhead.

    Now that I think of it, I rode upon a bear taking a $hit in the woods, last year. So..... Yes. Bears also $hit in the woods.

    Pull off, find a tree... The next rider might be a woman.

    That being said, I have encountered guys relieving themselves trailside and changing into/out of their chamois at the trailhead; they tend to be far more embarrassed than I when I happen upon them.

    I pee outside all the time.
    Blow snot outta my nose , farmer-style, all the time.
    Hawk a loogie once in awhile.
    Fart regularly.

    I won't get into the other stuff, seeing as how this ain't the women's lounge.

    Hope your day goes better.

    Wow, he only made it to 31 posts. That is worse than being the first one kicked off some reality show that never gets aired on tv.

    Sorry dude. It was that or into a bush/on the trail, and apparently you aren't supposed to do that as the deer like the smell as a salt lick. You can imagine the amount of bacteria in there by the time they get to it, though. I figure, over the edge means the wind will spread it out and there won't be enough concentration anywhere to attract weird deer.

    Why would anyone question the need to pee in the bush? One of life's pleasures. In fact, being a guy (pre-prostate disasters), every pee is one of life's great moments. Something to be savoured. The build-up, the release and the incredible pleasure and relief after. Who'd be a girl? Let's face it, adding the bush into the moment eclipses all other issues. Not only that but pee kills weeds here. And you can clean wounds with it.

    One question? I never seem to need a pee when I ride. It is hot here and even if I feel like one I can keep going and my body re-absorbes all moisture. Why do you need to pee on the trail?

    Finding tampons on the trail is disgusting. I was hiking this past Fall and found a bunch of used feminine products that someone had tossed into the underbrush. It was hanging there all bloody and nasty about a foot from the trail. :barf:

    I spent 2 seasons of full time rock climbing in Yosemite. We pooped in brown paper lunch bags and tossed them over the side. You donít want to stink up the ledge you sleeping on! The stench of piss is bad enough. This is one of the reasons I always went in the spring. The snow had washed all the chock, etc. off every thing.

    I never heard of any body base climbing getting hit, but could you imagine?

    Now, that is unacceptable.

    All tampons and used toilet paper should be at least buried in a cat hole, burnt, or packed out.

    I tried to pee the graffiti off this building. I figured if it worked all kinds of people would hire me to MTB to their graffiti problem areas. It didn't work.

    But look what happened when I peed on this tree.

    I can understand if the guy pisses right out in the open but if he went behind a tree or bush then why care.

    I piss in the woods every chance I get.

    matter of fact, when I'm at home and have to piss I go outside when the weather is nice (3 acre wooded lot)

    In college, the guys on the second story of my dorm used to piss off their deck. Once winter hit, they stopped going out onto the deck and pissed right out their door. The deck was covered in nasty ice-piss and a few piss-cycles hung down in front of my window.

    Should be packed out... period.

    Burying or burning "garbage" in the woods (or meadows, valleys, mountains, plains, rivers) is not acceptable in modern times.

    Ideally, but if they don't... I prefer the buried/burned instead of the left hanging from a shrub!

    I find nothing against pissing outside but do try to hold it until I find a restroom (every few miles or so on our local trails). When I do however, I kneel down by the rear deraileur, sorta like I'm fixing it or something and let the dragon loose. Smooth sailing thus far.

    Whats a jackwagon?

    chillin out at my house right next to some smooth, flowy singletrack today when this jacknob pulls off the trail onto my face to text somebody. right when i'm about to say something, this other dude comes up and starts to "water me" if you will.

    totally ruined my day.

    In our group, some including myself have been known to let it fly while standing over the bike at a rest stop. Don't see the big deal about it. When I first met my wife, she could not believe that people just pee in the woods. Her parents must be related to OP

    I just thought of something. If the pee-er in question was trampling cryptogamic soil in order to relieve himself, I'd have been angry too. But, I would have then tried to educate the pee-er about the fragility of said soil.

    The OP is trapped in the sh|thole of the South so any crypto is thousands of miles away.

    Sounds like maybe.....

    OP's a new rider to the sport and was just surprised by it, not so much the deed. Not like it was one of his buddies on the ride with him. Then it'd be different story I would think. Could be wrong.

    50 pee bashing posts on here. Give me a break.
    Wait whuuut, who did he tell you that!?!?....

    Man Law

    Sometimes, a guy's gotta go.

    When outdoors, allow about 30 ft from other guys. (Allow more room if non-mans are present.)

    Set up down wind and point yourself away from others.

    Do what you gotta do. Do not shout about it. (Cross reference man laws on TMI)

    Put things in order and resume your regularly scheduled activities.

    Bystanders corollary: Do not get bent by a guy doing what a guy's gotta do.

    Man law.

    Do trailbuilders get an exemption?

    Hope the OP wouldn't be offended by trailbuilders peeing in the woods during 4-6 hour build sessions on the weekends maintaining the trails he's riding. We're often a long way from restroom facilities he'd consider appropriate.

    Shamelessly urinating in front of other people is sick. Iíve met such individuals for a couple of times and Iíve always wanted to slap the bastard. This is disgusting!

    OK, as silly as it was for the OP to ***** about someone peeing, I would be a little weirded out if, with all the other places to go (like another 50 feet away), someone I never met before stopped 15 feet away from me in the middle of the woods to piss. Yes, I piss in the woods all the time, yes, I piss 15 feet away from people in the middle of the woods (if they are guys I am riding with, or certain women I know very well). And yes, I have peed in the middle of the woods where people I did not know saw me (including women), but it was not intentional. But what is described in the OP is just a bit off.

    It would not have ruined my ride, or even put a damper on it, but I would be mentally red-flagging that dude as "maybe-not-quite-right".
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    Exactly! Pee OFF the road.

    How often do women that you know well pee in front of you?
    Can you do us/women a favour and hide your ass in the bushes next time?

    Of course, if I was doing my best to be discrete and you unexpectedly came up on me while doing so, that's your problem if you can't handle it.
