I can't even count how many times have I've been out riding my lead bike, or had fish sitting on the handlebars, or had to ride around a discarded garden gnome.

Wasn't JS Haiku Shop looking for garden gnomes recently? I know where one is for free!

Full pre-hydration is still req'd., but on-the-bike-'relieving' just got a whole lot easier.

Impossible, actually. The article states he was aided by a "breathing aparatus." But the picture shows a snorkel. Would have to have been a diving bell and air pump to go three hours, and couldn't have been very deep (less that 20 feet) or he would have some serious decompressions time.
I'm guessing this is all a staged shot and a joke (nm)ColnagoFE

I think the picture is a photoshop job. Even the computer is still on the bike.

If you are not an air pig and don't go deeper than 20 to 25 feet you could do it. Last November I did a dive in Bonaire, on one tank, for 2 1/2 hours. About half of it was at 35 to 40 feet and the rest was at about 20 feet. Still had 500 lbs of air left. Just another advantage of bike training, use less air when diving. It probably was photo shopped, the picture does look a little "fishy"

Also, I don't think the waters of of germany have that visability.
