peeing off the bike

I know pros do it in tour de france, just wondering if anyone here ever gave it a shot?

I'm not trying to be a troll, just genuinely curious.

Tried it. Succeeded. Got too much back for me to want to try it again.

In American football- where men are men, they just believe in using extra bleach on their uniforms to get out the spots.
Are pro cyclists less manly. I guess sanitizing saddles are more of a chore.

Never tried it. Used to ride with a buddy who was pretty good at it. He's since moved to Texas and I suppose still does it since it is a big state and out in the country there's nobody around to see.

He used to say "Well I'm dropping back for a WOW (whizz on wheels). He suggested it is best to try it on a rainy day so if it doesn't work out your bike will get cleaned off by the road spray. I guess it has to do with a "venturi" effect or something. I've never had the nerve to try it.

I'm not very "skilled" so I always have to stop and get off the bike.

I can't ride with no hands either like this.

I've never had to take a leak or a dump while riding. But I've never been on long rides either. Geez, I might go practice so on May 11 and 12 when I do the Tour De Cure I can amuse everybody.

I usually stop and find a spot behind a big stroppy gum tree.

I would like to try it, but, it takes two hands to handle the whopper and I always need at least one hand on the handlebars

I'm not very "skilled" for my height, so I probably would have a problem doing this also, not that I want to try it. I'll take a tree.

Why pee OFF the Bike, when you can pee ON it? In a pinch I find it an excellent way to clean off gritty brakes, rear derailleur and chainwheel. I do not like to go fast downhill and often ride my brakes, so from time to time I have cooled off my rims by whizzing on them as well.

I had to stop on the way home from work after a long walk because it was hot and I drank waaaaaay to much water and I had to ditch into a creekbed only 1/3 mile from home.

AAAAHHhhhhh......

This is difficult to believe, as one person stated. I only believe it becasue I recall a Bicycling Magazine, taking a long distance shot from behind, of a Tour De France pro,' using this time saving method.
My question, how does this effect steering and response to road obstacles. God, hate to crash while engaging in this act.

ESPN (?) had a clip of a guy peeing off his bike durring the Kona Traiathalon last year, he was holding his speed quite well! I just hope he had a strong side wind to help stay clear!

Maybe this is why they have a no drafting rule?

I'll try this if someone will loan me their Bianchi. The color may just improve as a result!

I won't be trying it again since I caught my 'old man' in the spokes of my back wheel and had to have it re-trued .

On a related note: a local celebrity said in his 50-years interview that he has noticed getting older. 25 years ago, if he saw a beautiful girl he could lift a bucket filled with water with his you-know-what. He can't do that anymore because his knees won't take the pressure.
