Urinating while riding

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Doesn't matter ... urinating in a place where other people may swim is just not acceptable. Do your parents know you do that?

And, there is no need to go find a bush and get dirt in your shoes.

Instructions:
1. Get off the bike.
2. Turn back to road.
3. Pull out your wanker.
4. Pee
5. Put your wanker away - this is very important.
6. Get back on the bike.
Wouldn't #3 be just as important as #5 ? After all, that's part of the reason this whole thread got started in the first place.

Eeew...

When I was actively swimming and doing 50+ laps a day, I never pee'd in the pool. Even if it was at home, I would never pee in the pool. Doesn't matter how much chlorine you put in the pool, you're still swimming in your own pee even if it's relatively a small fraction of the volume of the water in the pool.

On the bike, the idea of peeing on myself and my bike sounds disgusting even if it's in the rain. The only time I pee while exercising is if I'm swimming in the ocean. Who knows what's in the ocean...

Yes. Urine can break down the skin and cause cracking and splitting. Then again, I guess it's his banana...

I know this seems like an odd question (like the sweaty banana) but it's also a valid query.

Lately, I've become a fan of riding in the rain. I dress down as to avoid riding in wet clothes and typically ride shorts and no gloves. I wear my booties, my rain jacket and my balaclava with helmet. I figured, this is kinda like swimming, what's the big deal if you are wet and riding a bike, people swim and get wet so what's the difference?

Today while riding I had the urgent need to pee. Seeing how I was wet I thought to myself "if people swim and pee inside the pool, why can't I pee now that I am all wet?". So I peed on myself a little while I rode. I didn't necessarily like it but seeing how it was 50F and I was kinda chilly, this helped me warm up a little. I'll admit that I did hose down the bike when I got home as I didn't want that to stick.

So, silly question. Have you ever peed while you are riding if you are already soaked from the rain? Does it bother you? Of course not in a group ride!

Thanks,
Luis

A real man woulda cathederized himself with taint-free pee from someone else and wrung out the chamios drinking the liquid AKA [Bear Grills] to stay hydrated all while on the bike maintaining a 24mph average speed on the way to a record 25th Championship victory.

Just like everything else in cycling, it takes practice. This goes without saying but make sure you are at the back of the peleton before you attempt this. Also never attempt to do this while on a climb.

First method is more discreet and works best if you are a shower. Roll up your bib short just enough to expose the head of your pee-er. If you're uncircumcised you want to pull your foreskin back as well. Unclip the foot that is on the outside of the peleton and bend your knee slightly. Slowly release balder tension in the direction of the unclipped foot. Your bent knee will prevent pee from flowing all the way into your cycling shoes. If you're not comfortable pedaling with one foot then only attempt this on a descent when you can coast for a bit and still keep pace. If the wind is blowing in your direction chances are your pee will never reach past your knee and you can get away with staying clipped in.

Second method I've only ever seen on youtube and probably will never attempt, but it involves pulling down your bib shorts and taking out your wanker completely, angling your body correctly (while slightly leaning against the top tube) and just start spraying. Pretty radical if you ask me.

Never pee in your shorts. Will cause all sorts of chemical reactions with your sweat and chamois cream. Also resist the urge do this on a group ride that includes women. Its called checking your privilege, and if any of them secretly had the hots you probably just torpedoed your chance of getting laid....unless she's hardcore and pees in the saddle as well.
