gottapeeowwowwowwgottapeeowwowwoww

So on Saturday I rode the Solvang Century. My total elapsed time was 8 1/2 and my riding time was 7 with an average speed of 14.3. In other words I was on the bike a long time. I pride myself on paying attention to hydration and went through 2 1/2 bottles with electrolyte (nuun) and three bottle of just plain water during the ride. Post ride I had coconut water, regular water and a soft drink or two. During the ride I used the facilities at each sag stop - except the last one, at which I didn't bother stopping.

Starting Monday I really started peeing a lot, and by yesterday I was going every hour. Last night I started seeing blood in my urine, and "flecks", and it was painful. This morning I went to see the doc. His diagnosis is a prostrate infection, and he dosed me up with some antibiotics, so hopefully this will get better soon. I asked about riding, and his suggestion was to stand up as much as possible (I do tend to sit more than I should). I have a Romin EVO comp, and i didn't have any significant discomfort during the ride.

Not posting this for help, or sympathy, just as a note about an unintended consequence of a long ride!

For the record, coconut water is a diuretic and it makes you pee.
Now I gotta pee.

Dudel, you just could not resist this one could you

Trouble is, you are probably, lamentably, correct I fear.

OP, you just had to post about needing to pee and describe all this liquids you took in didn't you I'll wager most readers that click on this thread just to seee what the prize winning title is all about go to the head shortly after laughing then cussing at you. ; , here have a beer or three and see if that doesn't help you out some.

The problem is that one shouldn't even be thinking about riding a century this early in the season.

The short term solution is to ride one of these:

OP, hope you get better! That's a lot of liquid. I did a 200K last year, was my first century. Actually over hydrated but it was 98 that day....

Now I'm better at balancing my fluids and snacks. Good job on finishing the century!!!

It's funny how discussions with my two cycling buddies go. One is 65 and the other 75. "Hey you gotta pee yet? " Seems like that is a common thread for us over 50 and higher

We did our first 100 miler of the year last month, finished in 5:25 on the bike and 5:40 total time. Not too shabby for three old farts who need to take a leak

Around here (Central Indiana) it's hard to find a Private Place to take a break this early in the year before the vegetation gets growing.

I would suggest that you re-evalute your fit on your bike. You shouldn't be having that problem on that short of a ride.
