    This is true. though do try to stop and find a hedge/tree to hide behind so as not to embarass the ladies.

    I just take the end out of my sock and away I go. It's important to make sure it's tucked in properly afterwards though, as it can do a lot of damage to the chain set if it gets caught.
    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
    Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved

    Some bibs have too high a front (and that's the story I am sticking to!).

    Lift the leg of the shorts and pop the little fella out that way (that's also the technique for peeing on the move - I have never ever tried it though!).

    Bending over (forwards) can create a bit more slack in the front of the shorts (as if you don't already look daft enough behind a bush in lycra).
    I really don't know why clothing designers haven't addressed this problem.

    SImple. Don't drink on the ride. Dehydration will remove the need to ..ahem... You may however pass out, which could be even more embarrassing.

    always buy shorts with low front to allow enough room to stretch old fella out
  • Just pish yourself and tell everyone you've been sweating.

    I used to stop every hour through but drink less now so can go on for ages without a hose down. Drink when you get thirsty, don't over hydrate, and don't drink just to cool down (ride faster instead). If you've got too much coming out you've got too much going in!

    I also find skipping tea/coffee if I'm having breakfast first cuts down stops.

    Pull down the front of the shorts, but don't let go or you'll have a Wile E. Coyote moment! :D

    Err - that's why there are 2 lots of bottle bosses!

    Don't forget etiquette though. Remember to call left if someone is sucking your wheel.

    And chuck it over your right shoulder.
