All these bike trails the Government is building are only going to make it worse, with all those cyclists eating scroggin and yoghurt. (They will have) huge bowel motions when pedalling on bicycles all day, and there will be no toilet facilities.

It is actually a serious question, Tim's PA has asked for articles on "freedom cycling camping".
After all the trouble the Southern Lakes area has been having with rogue pooers, Tim sees the cycleway as a serious threat to public health.

he's talking about the future on cycleways - not the waterway issues from dairying (which I agree in certain parts of the country are a bloody disgrace)
think the article sums it up well - "freedom shitters" are making a mess.
Its a pretty easy connection to make - if you concentrate people in an area without sufficient and appropriate toilet facilities there will be plenty of freedom shitting going on. Its already happening in this country in with high levels of Freedom camping.
Cyclists aren't immune from shitting. Ther is no reason to think they will behave any differently from others.
plans for appropriate toilet facilities are a must - otherwise all users will suffer
If you don't believe me go up the hill behind the Craigeburn shelter - where there is a perfectly functional long drop that people don't want to use - and enjoy the hundreds of little scrunches of origami crap wrap flowers left to decorate the turds left behind by the freedom shitters.
nearly as bad as the Inca trail (is /was) - new thread? - worst literal shit holes in the world?
I'm off for a crap
