I dropped a loadie

I saw a roadie trying to catch me riding home last night.
But the chili I had for lunch kicked in, forcing me to sprint for home.
I didn't make it in time.
I cannot guarantee that no roadies were hurt in the making of this thread.
That is all.

lol
I have an 80 year old stomach in a 33 year old body. I know the feeling.
This rider knows where every port-a-pottie is on his commute.

There is only one port a pottie I can depend on.
It is only in service during warm weather.

Using a port-a-pottie after it has just been cleaned in 5F temps is one of life's little pleasures.
By pleasures I mean a race to see how fast one can finish up in before freezing to the seat.

Unlocked pottie during winter. That would be a happy luxury.

I hate to ask, but I just can't help myself......

Is the port-a-pottie liquid still, er, LIQUID way below freezing temps?

I'm from the South (northen hemisphere). Gimme a break.

Having stopped at enough port-o-johns during mid-winter distance rides, I can assure you that at temperatures down to 20F, the blue stuff is still liquid.

Well, even if the ride wasn't pleasant, you still had a good run, right?

The liquid they use to clean it with was not even remotely close to freezing when I had to hover inside the port-a-pottie. They had finished cleaning right when I was pulling up.
