Can I just recommend that this is one thing that should not be preactised whilst turboing in the living room

Nope - it is less obvious if it is raining - which it always is.

a tip if peeing while running - make sure you don't have muddly legs as the pee will leave large telltale track down the legs (Toughguy)

a tip if peeing in a wetsuit - make sure you don't have nicks in the suit legs as the pee will leak out and will be seen by others as you are stood around waiting for the race start (Vitruvian)

who me??

Peeing on the bike - No at IMCH.
Yes at IMR as it was raining but I'd never done it before and I was so self conscious trying to ensure there was no one in close proximity and I had to stop pedalling so much to make my bladder realise that "Yes, it's OK, you can let go" that I think I could well have been faster if I'd just popped off the bike for a minute. Also, I couldn't wave my tri suit at the other pirates coming in when I was supporting as all I could smell was pee and my bike smelt as well so I'm not planning on doing it in IM Austria.

I did - as it was witnessed by a few forumites.....  

I also broke the peeing whilst swimming hangup at Outlaw - a jolly nice pee at just after half way on the swim.  I always remember Dr Nic saying it was a tough one to do when she was training for her Channel swim and she wasn't wrong.  if you're swimming well, you'll have a tight core and to pee, you need to relax the core.  it's not as easy as people think.

It took me a long time to manage to pee in a swimming pool in prep for the double. I couldn't actually do it whilst swimming, cycling, running or even walking.

I can happily pee in any shower though.

*adds another item to the list of reasons not to take up triathlon*

I couldn't manage peeing in a wetsuit when diving, so doubt very much if I could do it whilst running or cycling!

i can pee in my wetsuit when im bobbing about in the sea but certainly can't while in the action of swimming

because I usually swim first thing in the morning... I think it would look like one of the red arrows' displays if I was to try peeing whilst actually swimming.... albeit with a golden trail rather than a red one

(and in water, and not quite as fast/streamline/spectacular)

I can pee easily whilst swimming in my wetsuit. Interesting about it being impossible if you're swimming properly - clearly thats where I'm going wrong !

And peeing in the showers should definitely be a no-no if its a communal one !! Its not a nice sight !

I can pee in all three disciplines, although on the bike requires a little more thought for some reason.

When doing it on the bike it's best to rinse with some fresh water to avoid the burn later.

So anyone fessing up to a pee at the awards ceremony then. Seems like most other parts are covered.
