I've come across a few people who talk about what you should do, before going riding. Typically, it's
- Fill up your water bottle
- Check your tire pressure
- Check your chain
- Check, check, check..
But as a side effect to my biking at regular times, I've found myself becoming "regular" and my body has learned to empty itself before my morning 6am ride to work and before going home 3:30-4pm and I think taking the extra few moment to ensure everything is "out" is excellent. There aren't to many washrooms on my bike ride into work other then mother natures leafs as toilet paper. Which doesn't works to well... speaking from experience.
- Listen to your body. It's telling you things..
