I can take any natural element on a trail – spiderwebs, bugs, etc, but I have serious issues with the lack of courtesy on the trails.

#1 I am onboard with the descenders failing to yield to the uptrackers.

#2 Horse poop. I get that most towns have that law on their books that allow certain privileges to horse owners, but there are "catch bags" available for use in cities, why not on trails? If people have to clean up a tiny little dog dropping, they should have to shovel their horse’s droppings, too.

#3 Parents who slap an improperly fitted helmet on their kid’s head, and don’t even bother to wear one themselves. Absolutely brilliant planning. Hope your kid can wipe up your self-inflicted drool.

I’m sure after today’s ride, I’ll have many more.
