Urinating while riding

Notices
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

That is nasty man. How much effort does it take to pull off the road, flip it out and water the bushes?

In desert racing the smart guys wear an external cathader. The trick is to make sure the hose is not pointing into your shoe. You also have to be in the right mood to put one on.

Sounds like a great way to ruin some expensive shorts while setting yourself up for a nice bacterial infection.

If I were in a position to win a major race, perhaps i would resort to such things. But riding around, my dog won't mind if I get home 45 seconds later because I stopped on the side of the road for a quick pee break. There could be some fetish angle at work that most people are not interested in.

This kinda reminds me of the controversy over scuba divers peeing in their wet suits.

the downside if you don't continue to get rained on during the ride you'll smell like a urinal at any place you stop or when you get to your destination.

I'll pull over, whizz on the nearest bush and be on my way.

I have not urinated while on the bike since I stopped doing triathlons. Serious answer.

Reminds me of a time when I was a newbie carrier pilot in a single seat attack squadron. We had returned to the USS Independence for the landing and there was a delay. I really had to pee. Around the ship it was mandatory to fly 'tight' (close) to look good around the other squadrons. ('Better die than look bad'...an old honored Navy Air tradition) So there I was, trying to fly really close and had to pee even more urgently. In desperation I pulled out the relief tube juggling the stick, throttle and the tube while maintaining my position and examining this all but unknown device. Despite all the hours and hours of training no one had ever explained operation of the relief tube! (or maybe I slept through that part?) Yielding to my primal urges I unzipped my suit and torso harness and let go, all while maintaining position and avoiding spillage. Halfway through filling the conical containing I wondered "what if it overflows?".........Luckily I finished up with the golden fluid just below the rim. Whew!

"Your signal charlie, Wolf-Hunters." (descend to the break for landing.) "Okay smart boy what's going to happen when my aircraft traps going from 130 mph to zero in a few hundred feet? The gents who service the Scooter are gong to be pissed not to mention my getting a urine-related nickname for the rest of my career from my squadron mates. Good grief! How do I empty this damned thing? I looked for a switch, a button, a valve, anything. Down to 600' into the break, make it nice and tight..look good ...oh SH__! Then I noticed a tiny silver protuberance on the rim. In desperation I pushed it down.......SWOOOOSH..out it went! After that the subsequent landing was unremarkable, my experience a secret until after I retired.

Can you ride, pee, and eat that sweaty banana all at the same time? That is the more serious question.

In triathlons, I have peed in my wetsuit. I figure the lake or river washes it off. Peeing in a pool is unacceptable. I would never pee on my bike, though. I just stop and find a tree or rocks to go behind.

OH!!!!!!!!!!!!! From this date, on, I will never look at a used bike in the same light again.

I hope somebody can back me up because if you really were racing or doing a fast group ride, the last thing you want to do is get off the bike and lose the group. Also, I pee in pools and even in the shower, not ashamed of it. I am sure 99% of us do...
No, no, and no.
Finally I am in the 1% of something...

I like this thread. I have "issues" with my bladder that cause me to pee every 15 - 60 minutes. It makes long rides really challenging. I've been caught in the rain a few times and considered this, but have never brought myself to actually doing it, I don't think I could.

Perhaps there is a reason why some people's bikes are corroding so much they just crumble into pieces.
