Bring your next ride to life with avatars, available on select routes!
Whether riding alone or with friends, the newest feature gives your indoor riding experience a fresh feel. Personalise your avatar and ride with or against friends on any avatar-enabled route.
Available in the newest app releases for iOS, macOS, Apple TV, and Windows. The functionality will be rolled out to Android in the future.
You can create your avatar under Settings > Avatar Customisation in the FulGaz app.
You can customise your rider to look like yourself or your cycling heroes with a selection of bike frame, clothing, and skin colour options. Plus, we’ll release new kits regularly, so you’ll always be the most fashionable cyclist in the bunch.
Set up a group ride with your mates, or join us for a drop-in ride if you want to go for a pedal with another FulGazzer! You can even switch between views mid-ride if you just want to focus on the open roads.
Our drop-in rides are all about riding with the FulGaz community. Select a ride in the Drop-In Rides channel and choose a rider from the pre-ride screen to “drop in” next to.
Keep an eye out on their watts per kilo if you’re looking for someone riding about the same pace. Don’t worry. There’s no drafting, power-ups or shortcuts, just you against the road.
Start at the beginning of the ride and count how many people you can chase down on your ride.
We’ve only made avatars available on a selection of our top rides. Check out a few of our favourites below.
Although this is the easier side of Mont Ventoux, it is also the longest so make sure you pace your effort to the top. The first 18Kms to Chalet Reynard are relatively easy, rarely exceeding 6%. Here the route merges with the climb from Bédoin, and climbing gets a lot tougher with several sections at around 11%; your body is fighting against the thinning air as you approach the summit at 1,900mMore Info
2022 Ironman World Championships bike course in Kona, Hawaii. Some beautiful vistas and no motor vehicle traffic. Longer than an Imperial century, and shorter than a 200 km Randonneurs brevet, it will challenge most riders. Exiting the transition area on the Kailua Pier, with a short section through town before heading out onto the Queen Ka`ahumanu Highway (Hwy 19) and travel north to Kawaihae Junction. Veering right at Kawaihae Harbor onto Akoni Pule Highway as you head up the hill to the top of Hawi for the bike turnaround and the official checkpoints on the course. Return by the same route. Head south on Akoni Pule Highway, left at Kawaihae Harbor, turn right (south) onto Queen Ka`ahumanu Highway. When back in town, turn right on Makala Boulevard to Kuakini Highway, then left (south) on Kuakini Highway to Palani Road, followed by a right on Palani Road and continue to the transition area.More Info
The classic, climb in the Dandenong Ranges that’s often used to test rider’s ability. It’s not particularly steep, hence the nickname that reflects the average gradient, but it’s a solid effort that can seem like it’ll never end if you go too hard. Don’t forget to push hard on the flatter bit just over half way up!More Info
You can configure your rider’s avatar under the setting tab in the FulGaz app. You can edit your display name, look or style at any stage.
Avatars are only be available on a very limited number of routes. You can find all of these under the “Avatar” ride channel in the FulGaz App.
You can turn off your avatar at any stage during the ride by toggling the on-screen bottom right had button on your device.
Currently avatars are available on iOS, MacOS, AppleTV and Windows.
We will be adding avatars to Android versions of FulGaz in the coming weeks.
You only need to set up your avatar once, so if you set it up on your iPad it will automatically come across to your AppleTV or Windows device.
We are working on the technology behind the Android version of avatars. We don’t have a concrete timeline for the release of avatars on Android.
