Golden bikes

last year before IM wales much of the conversation was based around peeing on the go

{the source of golden boot's name}

As much as I've tried I havent ever been able to go while on the go 

quick poll: do you pee on bike during an IM bike?

  • I had a wee on Cheerful Dave's bike in the transition area at Outlaw last year image

  • I have enough problem peeing in my wettie

     

    No

     

  • No ! Its gross !

  • I've still not mastered peeing on the run! image

  • nope - never been able to manage it

    peeing on the run however is remarkably easy but don't try it if you have some crotch chafage after a 180km bike ride  - strong urine and raw skin are very unhappy bedfellows.  image

  • interesting....

    It's only fair, I pee'd in your wetsuit.  At least you weren't in it at the time.

  • i remember Mon's answer on this subject.

  • No it might clean my bike.

    I peed on a plastic chair in transition, hope no-one sat on it after.

    IM Florida - T2 changing tent - bloke sat on the opposite bench peeing profusely while sitting down.  I told him to use the loos as I did think that was a bit too much with others coming in after us.

    That's what happen to me in Regensberg. I had the worse chaffing ever.

    Some guys just don't care. When I was at the Welsh Castles with my running club the other weekend, guys were stripping off to change bollock naked in the middle of the sports hall where we were sleeping.

    And your point there is???  image

  • i had better not go back to enduroman..........My hands wouldn't work enough to take my shorts down.hence sitting down to pee my pants on the grass..........and this year quads refusing to work hence not able to sit down and having to pee standing up at teh tree...........

    I can say that this years was more successful as last year all the peeing in my pants caused the worst chaffing I have ever known...............this year no peeing in pants and no chaffing at all.........

     

  • I have to ask, is it worth it?

    Don't you stink like an old people's home for the rest of the day?  I don't like the sweaty smell of myself very much by the end of an IM as it is, without adding stinking of piss into the mix.

  • I wouldn't do it in training Mouse but on race day I do. image
    I think it's worth it then.... in beats trying to find a suitable bush!

    Tbh, I probably don't smell too grand at the end of an Ironman... with or without the piss! image

  • No. I have white bike shoes. image

  • And am so slow that a few mins in a portaloo during the bike leg won't make any odds, am not chasing a Kona slot!

    Having six or seven wees on the run at Roth might have added a fair bit to my marathon time though, but again, I just wouldn't fancy the shoe cleaning after, so it's portaloos for me.  image

  • I popped my peeing on the bike cherry at IM France and stopped at the supporters to tell everyone, because I was so chuffed. image



    Can't do it in training, but I couldn't think of anything worse than getting off the bike at 80 or 90 miles to go to the loo, then have to climb back on and try to start again. Audrey a doesn't mind..... I think.



    I've needed to on the run but have never managed it. There is still time!
