bib short and urination

I keep reading about the awesomeness of bib shorts. But two things keep crossing my mind.
1: add a fluffy frill and its a tutu, but I can get over that.
2: urination looks like a 9 step process

so my question is this: Is there a quick way to achieve urination while wearing bib shorts without just simply soiling oneself? Can one of the legs be hiked up and stretched over to allow access?

pull bibs down, hang it over the side, get the job done... shake... and pull bibs up. BUT..... dont pull bibs up before you are done!

In all seriousnes.... its easy to do. I had the same reservations but it was simple. There is enough stretch to make it happen.

By the way...areotech is awesome for bibs.

While riding? Or in a restroom. My Jr High French teacher showed a film of the TDF and to the delight of the students it featured a competitor draining the weasel while riding.

For men, it's no problem. The legs pull up and on most bibs you can also pull down the waist.

For women, it is a major operation, I assume, requiring removing the jersey, etc.

Better in a restroom. Or in a place you can do it without getting arrested. The days of pulling over to the side of the road and draining are coming to a close. An arrest for indecent exposure labels you a sex offender in some places.
