Stitch Cramp


no spam for me

I have been ramping up distance over the last few weeks and about a week ago
I was attacked by a killer cramp in my side while I was climbing the major
hill that I have on the ride....about 180' over a 1/3 of a mile. I have
since had this same problem about 5 more times to a lesser extent and about
the only thing that is different is that I have extended the route by 5
miles. Any one have a good suggestion on avoiding this? I am hitting the
road on an empty stomach and keeping my liquid consumption small.
