    Avoiding Dog Poop!

    Riding through dog poop really ruins my day of cycling! Once this happens, I just want to get home so I can hose things off.
    Usually I don't know that I have biked through the poo until I feel my legs being spattered by something or I smell S#*!

    I now make it a point to watch out for it in the trails, but somehow I still seem to run through it!

    It's a real exercise in awareness this time of the year with all the leaf cover. Like land mines.

    I like how it flings up onto your bike and your body. Little dog poop specs all over the place are AWESOME.

    When it started to rain I was getting water flying off my front tire onto my face and mouth, thankfully the poo was on my back tire this time.

    Sort of reminds me of the time I noticed something purple on my bike, wiped it with my finger and smelled it to confirm it was deer **** with berries in it.

    Learn from my mistakes - don't do that.

    Coyotes like to poop right on the trail too.....it's a territorial thing with them.

    Who is gonna pick that up? It does tend to be firmer and drier than domestic dog, so it's not quite as spectacular ....smaller turds, too.

    I get the feeling that 'yote's really don't eat all that much. My old tomcat drops bigger turds than many of them.

    Only one of my neighbors in the apt. complex I live in has been given the privilege of owning a dog, and they use the dog sh*t as a 'passive-aggressive' kick in their neighbors' teeth. Many of the neighbors like to play on the lawn with their kids and friends, but they step in this one dogs' sh*t since the owner consistently gets around to picking it up a day or three after the dog squeezes it out.

    So, he basically forces them to either pick up his sh*t for him or not use/walk on the common lawn.

    Where I come from, passive-aggressive crap like this was formerly only pulled by females on a regular basis, but now, it seems that men are into it just as much.

    Perhaps that speaks to the 'feminization' of our society?

    You haven't lived until you hit a pile head on right after it's dispersal. Yes hot steaming poo on a cool morning is second to none.

    We do have Coyotes and I think I seen some Coyote crap on the trail yesterday as well, but the stuff that I keep riding through is a yellowy colour and smells horrible enough to make you retch.

    Not that time

    When I was a grease monkey sometimes I'd figure out what was leaking by tasting it. No wonder dogs like antifreeze so much, it's sweeter than candy.

    A well-known ghetto/barrio trick for guard dogs. I find it reprehensible, a capitol offense, if I was King.

    ^ absolutely it's a horrible death, destroys the liver.

    There were some homeless guys here several years back who brewed up some 'shine down behind the floodwall using an old radiator for the coil. At least one died, I remember another lost his eyesight ...

    About 9 out of every 10 dogs I see in the woods is off the leash, so I guess you can't expect those owners to pick up poo?

    Dog poo is a real problem at my local trails, we have a lot of stray dogs and at least as many irresponsible dog owners. Sometimes it's not a big deal but others it's a big sh**ty mess! I try to pretend that it's just a funkier kind of mud, but I just can't...

    Dog crap is nothing- I was railing a high speed turn a couple weeks back and nearly had a complete front wheel wash out when I hit horse crap!

    I barely saved it... woulda had a nice crap smear down my right side if I was just a bit slower on the oh sh!t recovery maneuvers.

    I ride on a lot of equestrian trails, and I much prefer the horse pucky to a dog turd. Dog crap is hard to get off the frame once hardened. It resmells once moistened by the hose. Barf.

    I rode through turkey poo a few months ago. NASTY. It was everywhere... all up my legs, chest, in my beard. It was gross. I stopped at a water fountain to wash it off, and every time I thought I had gotten it all, I'd find more smeared somewhere, that inevitably found it's way onto my gloves.

    You get fined if your dog dumps on the pavement and you don't pick it up but horses regularly drop huge piles on the pavement on my street and as far as I know there is no law against it!

    That said, I agree that dog crap is worse. It's nasty.

    Ride in a cow pasture with knee high grass and then come complain about some small pile of easily dodge-able pile of crap on a trail.
