Anyone who is the proud (or not so proud) owner of a penis will know the feeling of dread and anxiety when it stands to attention at precisely the wrong moment.

It's uncontrollable, unexpected and may lead to strange looks, ridicule and in extreme cases, arrest.

Mountain biking is a hot, sweaty, dirty and dangerous sport, much like sex, so it is perhaps no wonder that the unwanted erection can sometime arise when you're on a mountain bike trip.

Just pray to god it never happens in one of these awkward situations...
