My Gerard Experience

As a multi-discipline cycling champion and exercise physiologist, I take bicycles very seriously. Gerard bikes definitely have what it takes for me to ride hard and train with my elite clients.

A large part of the training we do is endurance conditioning. Gerard bikes are perfect for outdoor training because I can trust that the build quality is second to none. The frameset is as solid as they come. This means that I can give it full gas in a sprint and have the confidence that the bike will take as much as I can throw at it. We demand elite sports performance and Gerard Cycles delivers.

Endurance training: Coaching Conor McGregor (UFC MMA) on a pair of Gerard Force 90s.
