Athletes Gel: How It Can Assist Your Cycling, Pre & Post Ride

A revolutionary three-in-one topical gel designed for not only cyclists but athletes in every sporting field, Athletes Gel is one of those relatively new products you just keep hearing about.


Australian made and all natural, this  pre and post-ride and training gel is the result of two years research and development. It is designed to assist in the reduction of external pain symptoms, bruising and inflammation, and is based on the natural ingredients used in the formula and their traditional history of use.

Four Natural Ingredients

The ingredients include wintergreen, capsaicin, arnica and clove, and – according to those who have used the product – the response and results are nothing short of phenomenal. 

Chris Miller, the well-known Sydney rider and leader of Nero KOM Racing, has been using Athletes Gel for the past few months and says it’s now an important part of his pre and post-ride routines.

“We initially started using the product to assist with recovery, especially on back-to-back race weekends,” he told us. 

“However, after the success of that method and with the onset of winter, we’ve been using the gel as a pre-race ointment to warm the legs up,” he continued.

Team rider Angus Calder also sings the product’s praises, saying it is helping him through the bitter cold of winter.

“Cold mornings are definitely not as painful as they used to be with the use of the gel,” he said.

“Once the gel is activated you get a solid 30-40min of warmth, enough to get you through those first few painfully cold kilometres.”
