    When I first started triathlon, my TNT coach Gurujan Dourson, would always talk about peeing on the bike. It was weird because TNT usually attracts a lot of newbies – most of whom don’t care about peeing on the bike in a triathlon. He would always preach “practice, practice practice!” and all the girls would go “eww eww eww!”

    I, however, immediately caught the triathlon bug, and always made note about the severity of his tone whenever the subject was discussed. You could say I was curious and intrigued by this concept, but felt that I would do it only when necessary, rather than going out of my way to perform such act.

    He always made a point that this “natural process” is as important as quick transitions in a race, since if you have to go and CAN’T, you are either going to be miserable, or have to stop. If you stop, you’ll want to stop at an approved place as you may be penalized and have minutes added to your time if you don’t. I don’t care if you are FOP, MOP or BOP – minutes are minutes, and minutes are the enemy!

    I first learned how to pee on the bike at the Wildflower Triathlon (twice). I had no idea what the “correct” method was, but I found something that worked for me, so to me, it’s correct! During Ironman Lake PLacid this year, I damn near received my pro-card in the practice.

    The Act

    The key to letting it all go is a downhill slope, relaxation, and a carefree attitude. Once you crest of the hill, stop pedaling, stand up on your bike, and try to relax a bit. Personally, I find I can’t relax while seated, and I definitely can’t relax while pedaling. Once gravity has taken over and you start descending, let loose. It might take a second or two of concentration, but once it starts, there is no stopping until it’s done. Also, don’t worry about other people behind you. Once they realize what is happening, they will get out of the way very quickly.

    Let me also say that after doing it once, it becomes so much easier to do it again. At Wildflower, I peed at miles 40 and 45! At IMLP, I simply lost count.

    Now, some say “Gross – now you’re covered in pee”. It’s all about getting to the finish line ASAP, not smelling as good as possible. But realistically, it can’t smell all that much worse than how everything else smells. Not to mention you’re doing it on the bike, which means the wind will help evaporate things very quickly. If you are properly hydrated, it is probably closer to water than anything else.

    peeing in a triathlon on a tt bike is a LOT different from peeing on a road bike during a road race.

    haha, usually the point is not to get your shorts wet. on a road bike you go off to the side on a descent, hold the bars toward the center, and rotate your hips toward the side of the road and either whip it out of the bottom of your shorts or the front. i have not done it myself because I didn't really want to or risk getting dropped with no teammate to pull me back up, but have seen it done plenty. much more risky in a field below 1/2, which is usually a shorter distance anyway. that makes it okay to hold it and forget about it.

    dude pisses on me? i'd fuck his shit UP. shit's uncivilized. . .
    the best way to do it is get a buddy that you trust enough to hold your bars at speed, lean to the side a little and pull out the bottom.
    shitting on the bike, whole nother story
    Take-off everything but your rainboots
    honestly, if you need to piss in almost any of the local races most cat3/4/5s are doing, you fucked up your pre-race schedule big time.

    I've peed off the bike on a lonely kansas road. It was awkward, and I spent too much time and speed trying to get it done cleanly. The only situation in which I see myself peeing on the bike again is in a mountain bike race when its raining. Even then its kinda tough.ascott430 - "Was going to build it up into a fixed gear until I realized I'd rather spend money and time on mountain bikes."
    Cross country kids seem to love peeing on themselves too. For a race that's 3 miles long? What?But the fact of the matter is: Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. And the United States of America has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world!
