It doesn't work that way if you're going fast. If you're going really slow, it's not much of an issue. Keeping the laces short is a very good idea, however this will not prevent them from possibly coming lose.

As mentioned earlier, some models of 5/10 MTB shoes (not just BMX variants) have a velcro flap that goes over the laces. Those are the ones I use, though I forget the model name.

Really. I ended up staying home from Muni Weekend, but this was mainly because I would have had to miss the last day anyway; we had a pre-planned trip to Cancun. I took some great pictures of the Chichen Itza pyramid, but every time I had to turn my camera to portrait mode, I had to push up the camera with my left hand, while my right held the lens and shutter button. Ouch!
