Toilet paper, or White Gold, as many Td’A riders call it, is a constant companion to everyone on the Tour.

First you must have some other kind of paper; a receipt, magazine, old journal entry etc… Once you’ve located a source of paper you need to use a technique I call “Crumple, Crumple, Smooth”. Take your piece of paper and crumple it thoroughly, then smooth it flat. Repeat three times and it is ready for use.
