Burp

I spend most of my time in the aero bars. I get the burps. Almost like I have seltzer water in the bottles rather than plain water or a sports drink. I've tried several over the counter gas meds without relief. I suspect I may swallow air, but why and how to stop it. I have a pot gut. Anyone with ideas how to curb this unpleasant problem? Especially in a pace line, you'd think we spent the day drinking Beer instead of doing a century.

Good question. Is it better/worse depending on what/when you've eaten? That's all I can think of.....

I'll get it too on my commute sometimes. I think its from how I'm breathing hard while cycling. Maybe I'm swallowing while take deep breaths - pushes air into stomach. Get upright at the next light...burp!

Doesn't seem to make any difference what I have eaten.

Swallowing while breathing...that can't happen. Swallowing is a reflex and doesn't allow breathing while occurring or vice versa. Don't know why this would happen though, I prob. would think it was based on what you ate, who knows

As long as its not acid reflux. Nothing worse than burping up gastric juices that taste like vomit.
