All of my group rides have a couple of regroup points where we wait and
do a head count before setting off again, usually at the tops of hills, so
anyone who needs a leak gets one there. I don't know how women
manage, though - there usually isn't enough cover for a modest squat.
I guess they just get good at holding on :)

When taking a **** on the fly, they'll wave any cameras in front of them
away first to find some interesting cows - I've seen that a few times.

I haven't heard that one, but it sounds plausible.

Saw something similar but in soft plastic some 30 years ago. Paddy Palins
were selling them.

It's not really a great substitute for making the right life choice and
growing a penis, though :)

I remember making the observation that, if I acted on all the spam I
receive, and if it was all genuine in its offerings, I would:
* be asleep all the time from the sleep meds;
* suffer a priapism;
* have breasts that fit into an 80ZZZZ cup (no comment on the band
size);
* have a penis that wraps around the world ten times;
* be worth billions of dollars, thanks to the many fortunes that
people want smuggled out of their home country;
* hold a fortune in stocks that skyrocketed just after I bought them;
* and many others that I'm sure you can fill in for yourself.

And to keep it on topic for the group: I must get back on my bike soon
.... it will be Interesting to see how I fare with the cold weather ...
(been too sick to be comfortable cycling in the past few weeks.)

Would the top guys like
Robbie McEwen stop for a ****? Surely they couldn't make it back.

Funny you should mention Robbie. During the live Eurosport coverage the commentators were chatting idly and then along rides Robbie.. whips out his todger, mid-shot, commentators are "woah Robbie natural break blah" and camera pans away quickly..

One of the other riders was fined for pissing within a town perimeter.

I enjoyed Cadel Evans' wit on the SBS highlights last night. A very
"Aussie"-sounding interviewer asked him how XY would be riding the
next day. Cadel said something like: "It's a bit hard to comment,
given it's a rest day". That was the end of the clip. ROTF.

What about that f*cking dog last night? Pity about the collapsed wheel
and the fallen rider. The great fat dog didn't even notice. Phil
Liggert nicely commented that the rider and dog appeared OK. He didn't
mention whether the fans had attacked and killed the dog owner, as
deserved.

Our local news said "a dog escapes injury". And showed the video clip of
the tumble.

Yeah, there's more at stake for a dog's health that shouldn't have been out
there in the first place, rather than any of the riders and teams who expend
untold hours and money in training and preparation for this race.

Won't somebody think of the dogs?

sure....he was looking for a fountain to sit in! :rolleyes:

one solid mass of lab too, his solid shoulder took the impact and his momentum took the bike wheel with him, twisting it sideways and "snaaaaap"... then he gives a "who me?"look from his sad and startled eyes... and heads back across the road...

don't blame the dog... he shouldnt have been put at risk by his distracted or absent owners....

confession.......I miss my dogs ( 7 YO Bassett died of sudden hepatic cancer 3 years ago ...sad...snifff......:(
