Stomach problems and nutrition whilst riding
Does anyone experience stomach problems whilst on long rides (5hrs+)? My appetite goes and I don't feel like drinking either. I 'think' this might be something to do with the pH in my stomach and I also have cravings for milk afterwards - does this sound silly or is there another reason. Nutrition wise I just have 1/3rd of a mule bar every 20mins washed down with gatorade - is this considered too chewy for my stomach and should I look to use gels?
