RED WHARF BAY

A hilly loop around the eastern promontory of Penmon, on the island of Anglesey. After visiting Red Wharf Bay, climb steeply to the hamlet of Llanddona before a fast descent to Beaumaris, where you will pass the unfinished Beaumaris Castle, built as part of Edward I's campaign to conquer Wales after 1282. This ride was filmed on a sunny day in early Feb 2020, the day before Storm Ciara blew through with its snow and 80mph winds, bringing large parts of the UK to a standstill.

LORNE TO AIREYS INLET AND RETURN

Starting from Lorne we head north to Aireys Inlet in the morning light. After the climb to Cinema Point and descent through to Eastern View, the view opens out to the Surf Coast. At around the 12Km mark the famous Pole House in Fairhaven on the left comes into view and soon after we approach the Aireys Inlet Lighthouse for our turnaround point. As we descend from the lighthouse we take in some gravel (watch out for the dog!) before passing the beach house featured in the iconic movie Mad Max on the left. We return to Lorne for coffee, riding through the bustling town before finishing at the town pier.

ROBIN HOOD'S BAY

The most popular historic village clinging to the cliffs of North Yorkshire is Robin Hood's Bay. Known in the past for smuggling, legend has it that goods could get from the sea to the top of the village without seeing daylight. Easy to believe as you cycle up the steep, narrow street between the houses. After hauling yourself up through the village, there is still 2km of climbing up onto the moors, a climb that has been used on the Tour de Yorkshire. The ride starts and ends at the 100-year-old swing bridge in the fishing town of Whitby. Briefly, at 31% at 10.28 Km, we believe this to be the steepest climb on FulGaz.

MIDWAY POINT TO HOPE BEACH

Join Mike and Klem on a perfectly sunny Tasmanian summer’s day, riding from Midway Point down towards to South Arm. Start with classic water views crossing McGee's Bridge before exploring the flat, quiet roads around the back of Hobart Airport and Seven Mile Beach. The second half follows the outward leg of the Friday Hook Spin, a regular amongst Southern Tassie’s road cyclists! You’ll tackle Clifton Hill (a short 1.7km climb averaging 4.5%) before descending towards Hope Beach, over a final 9.5% kicker and finishing just short of the “Hook” where you can soak in the view across the bay. We pay our respect to the traditional and original owners of this land the Mumirimina people, to pay respect to those that have passed before us and to acknowledge today’s Tasmanian Aboriginal community who are custodians of this land.

JERSEY - NORTH COAST BAYS

A challenging, hilly ride across the north coast cliffs of Jersey. The cliffs exceed 100m and have short, sharp climbs from sea level. Start by descending towards L’Etacq, before climbing to start riding along the north coast. Climbs and descents of various gradients (no more than 18% for brief sections) to test the legs, as you explore the bays at Greve de Lecq, Bonne Nuit (a tough one), Bouley Bay and Rozel. Watch out for the horses and then at about 1.5km from the finish, sprint the short, straight road called ‘Guy’s Dip’, named after a local legend in the cycling community. Finish at The Village Tearoom, St. Martin - which has the best coffee and cake in Jersey and is frequented by the Jersey Rouleurs Cycle Club. No better way to finish a ride.
