usually coffee in the morning will do it for me. but after a while later, my body became immune to it. so now i just take a glass of Amazing Grass - Green Super Food after dinner and the following morning on empty stomach, drink a big glass of warm water (down it).. within 5mins or less.. i'm ready to unload and out the door. now that's a fast way of losing 1-2 lbs :)

This is the only element of my cycling ability that is truly at the pro level. I produce a "basket of brown babies arms" every morning and often I go back for seconds before I head out. Early to bed, early rise, and a good breakfast with coffee is my recipe. Go to get the bikes ready and boom! Eyes glaze over, rippling peristalsis, light cramping, and a hobbling sprint to the head. I am big, have a fast metabolism, and eat way too much. Thinking of having a seat belt and hand grips installed on my toilet.

Upon waking I go right to the toilet and squeeze one out. Also another after breakfast.
Try an herbal tea at night like smooth move?
Try the squatty potty (google it).

The actor, Jeff Daniels, frequently likes to include informative health information and "how to" guides artfully intermixed with his comedy roles:

It's annoying to not be able to crap before taking a ride. My problem is that I am exceedingly regular...the only issue is that the baby arrives at exactly 10 am every morning. If I'm out for a long ride that means I nearly always had to go 3-4 hours after the start in some remote area without facilities.

For me, the issue is usually solved by eating much earlier than usual, say 6:30 pm instead of 9 or 10 pm.

...and I always carry toilet paper just in case.

drink lots of water -about 4/5 -8oz glasses as soon as you wake up and do about 15-20 jumps -on your both feet just jump :D . the water- if you not used drinking lots of waterer at once reduce the amount to 3glasses.this 2 methods will get the results within half an hour 8)

A topic of dire importance, especially if you're out for a group ride, a century or some such with limited access to discrete (and comfortable and aesthetically pleasing) facilities. An old limerick comes to mind:
In days of old
When knights were bold
and toilets un-invented;
They laid their load
Upon the road
and walked away contented.

As for me, I try to delay riding until mid-morning or later in the afternoon. Reading The New York Times followed by an astringent dose of "Democracy Now!" does it for me every time!

A minor update, since I started this thread:

I've now managed to maintain a consistency without those aforementioned random days, and it's due in part to some of the suggestions here. The 'staying upright' and doing a lot of walking about the house does help as I'm prepping for the morning's ride. A little coffee helps guarantee movement, and I'm set.

Thanks for the insights and suggestions, everyone, into what helps you. Hopefully this thread has helped others as well.

Increasing some 'good oils' (which I thought I was quite good with, but a little food diary proved otherwise) has helped.

Olive oil, salmon, some nuts, etc - all has helped.

Don't know if this would help or was mentioned earlier but I know a lot of athletes swear by the squatty potty.

So true! My dog has me up at the same time every morning and out for a brisk walk around the block. She is a true inspiration -goes in the same spot every morning without fail. Add in an espresso when we get home and it's go time.

I haven't ordered one just yet (I would like them to develop a 'travel' version), but I have been using a similar set up via a small piece of furniture that wasn't being used and has just the right amount of height and width... and it really, really works well.
