Excuse the stupid question, but due to take part in first road race soon. How and when do you go for a pee?
Always wondered how the Tour guys do it?

    Take a leak before the race starts, that should do you.

    Tour riders agree to stop to take a p1ss if riding steady, p1ss while riding with a team-mate pushing, or I guess p1ss themselves if under extreme pressure.

    None of the above are remotely relevant to a UK 3rd/4th cat road race, so please don't.

    You'll be riding far too fast and be far too nervous to pee. I was bursting once on the start line of a crit wondering 'should I go?' Too late whistle went and I was off, 30 mins and 3 laps later I finished and realised that I didn't need a pee after all! :D

    It is a stupid question.... please refrain from anymore !
    If you are daft enough to ask this question you deserve to be consigned to eternal sportives.

    You'll find that you'll piss loads before the race due to nerves and due to the fact that if you've prepared properly you should be well hydrated. But as people have said - as soon as the flag goes then you'll forget about pissing!

    Thick Tester, I really don't think this is the right forum for you.

    There must be a specialist website out there where you'd be more at home. Do you drive a BMW? I believe some of their forums cater for blokes with raging egos and small d!cks.

    Thick tester throws in some bait and hooks a couple more

    OP - The answer is, you can stop for a p*ss any time you like, there's nothing against it. Just don't expect anyone else to stop and wait for you.
