A Shift In Gears

With only four years of cycling experience, Gabriel Gay is currently a sponsored cyclist with Guerciotti Racing Team Singapore.
Having started cycling out of sheer boredom, his exceptional talent for the sport landed him a contract with the Guerciotti Racing Team Singapore. As a pro cyclist-cum-student, his busy school schedule prevents him from training during the day.
When asked if he would recommend night cycling to others, he replied: “I would not recommend night cycling alone as it can be dangerous in the night. However, I would suggest doing it in a big group, as it makes you more visible to other road users and hence, it will make things much safer.”
He added that night cycling is optimal for people who lack the time to cycle during the day and wants to enjoy the night scenery, and especially to the cosmetically conscious who would prefer not to get sunburnt.
