    My "dribbling" problem and lycra stains

    why is it before each and every ride just prior to mounting the bike I get and urge to wee wee. What made it even more problematic this week was my wearing of my skin suit on two rides. The time and flexibility required to relieve oneself is no joke. Sadly, unlike some the rolling up the pant leg technique is not an option. So my main question is what color lycra is best at hiding the dribble stain and why is there not an outfit that has a quick and easy release hatch to improve access.

    I suggest you forgo the dribble and just travel.

    What Dunbar said. Nervousness, stress, caffeine and not consistently drinking enough plain water contribute to the problem. Might take 6 months to settle everything down after all that converted to a lot of happy laughter.
    FB4K - This December, 2014, 5288 kids received bikes for Christmas. For many, it was their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. That amounts to well over 10,000 volunteer hours this fall, just in the Twin Cities. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.
    Disclaimer: 99% of what I know about cycling I learned on BF. That would make, ummm, 1% experience. And a lot of posts.

    I haven't wee wee'd since I was 5 so I can't help.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Wow
    frank urinary incontinence isn't normal- dribbling is how much??
    How old are you?
    Lots of folks take in plenty of caffeine-no problem.
    Hmmm-just how much urine are we talking about -10 drops??- who cares -it will look like sweat- and who is staring at your crotch anyway?
    It would make me wonder if you are damaging "yourself"-the seat or your positioning.
    Normally perineal pressure causes numbness-sexual problems etc
    unless you have irritated narrowed your urethra-perhaps that could cause dribbling?
    Maybe MD time for you if it is enough urine to actual be obvious ?
    I would be worried that I was damaging vital equipment
    if you are wearing a skin suit-you are young enough for that to be a considerable concern.

    Practice holding it. Kegel exercises even work for men. And, much of it is mental. One thing to try is to put on your biking clothes at home and don't go pee. Wear them for a while and then take them off and then pee, practicing peeing "on your own terms."

    And when it's bedtime, put your bike on a trainer and go to sleep on it instead of your bed. And wear underpants on your head. Don't think all the squirrels are looking at you next time you go outdoors. And blow your nose in your shoe.

    I think that'll fix the problem for you.

    And the reason you dribble is so that you can tell us about it here.
