I'm finding that on cold mornings (close to freezing) after having had a couple of cups of coffee and with a no-protein breakfast, I must stop three or four times in the first hour or two to relieve myself, and the intensity of the discomfort seems to be increasing as I get older.
Does anyone have experience with "incontinence pads for men?" I bring this up because I read recently that they did a study in Las Vegas and found that there were increasing amounts of incontinence pads being discarded in the casino washrooms (restroom to you Yanks), and that these came not from older men, but from young guys who were wearing them so they wouldn't have to leave a slot machine just as it was getting hot.
Have any of you geezers used these things? If so, I would like to know: how much output are they good for? Are they comfortable on a bike in the "down" position? Do they bulge under lycra shorts? Do they show stains on cycling shorts? Are they difficult to get rid o/dispose off? Are any brands recommended?
I see some potential advantage here, like on group rides where nobody wants to stop for a break in the first hour, and anyone who does is just left behind by the fast group. And even just commuting to work in the winter, where you're on public mostly-residential streets with no facilities and you like to have a cup of coffee or two before the ride.
Thanks! - Luis
