Security cameras have captured the bizarre moment a cyclist took a toilet break on a stranger’s driveway while riding through an affluent Melbourne suburb.

The masked woman is seen casually strolling through large gates and into an immaculate property in Brighton before squatting near the garden on Thursday morning.

After using the driveway as a toilet, she yanks up her tights, glances over her shoulder and makes a daring dash before anyone catches her in the unsanitary act.

She was wearing a bright blue bicycle helmet and appeared to have a bike outside the gate

The cyclist is described as a Caucasian female, in her 30s to 40s and was wearing a blue bicycle helmet, black jumper, black vest, black leggings and white shoes.

The poo jogger phenomenon

It's the latest case of public pooing after a runner was caught on camera defecating on a man's garden.
