Hi there, I always had fun with really moist "Cowsh" whilst out on the trike?
Accelerate sharply, weight forward, sliding the rear from side to side, result! No one ever allowed me to ride at the front on the club run, always able to hide out of the wind at the back. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: MM

my weekend ride is partly along shared pavement/cycle path /bridle way. Not too bad at this time of year but I hate autumn when the leaves are down and you really can't see what you're cycling through.

Aren't horses big?

A few years ago I was riding up a bit of a hill with a chum when we spied (a) a heap of horse manure and (b) two small boys on mountain bikes hurtling down towards us. We called out a warning, but instead of avoiding the heap they lifted their feet off the pedals and rode straight through, chortling happily. We nearly fell off laughing.

BTW, before addressing the poop-adhesion issue, rubber gloves are a good thought - preferably disposable.

hmm The first thing I notice is when I am inside and then too late. I think here it maybe be Fox poo as they run around the place out side. The best I can do if I detect it out side it to try and scrape the offending wheel against the grass verge. I once did try and remove the poo from the grooves with a twig when it was real big lump. Thats about it. Heck If I am going to get my nose closer to the poo than with a twig.

I trod in a big pile when I stopped for a pee at Herne Bay once. Unfortunately I didn't notice until I'd already got back on the bike, so not only was it forced into the rat trap, but I'd also managed to brush the pannier as I swung my leg over. I then cycled 85 miles home hoping to avoid the need to get clothing out of the pannier so that I wouldn't have to eat my sandwiches with crappy fingers.

I ride with mudguards so ride on hoping that none gets by. I then wash the tyre off with a hose when I get home.
Don't have a plan if I get a puncture.

What on earth do people feed to cats these days? The stink is vomit-inducing.

I'm wondering whether some sort of cat-B.S.E. will emerge in due course.

PS. I have about £200-worth of cat-discouragement-devices around the garden of my house.

It's the canned or so called 'wet' food,quality dry food is better for the animal,does stink when extruded and stools are much firmer and easier to pick up.
