Avatars on FulGaz

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.

1. CREATE YOUR
AVATAR

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.

2. SELECT YOUR
AVATAR-ENABLED ROUTE

Avatars aren’t available on every course, but we’ve curated a key selection of routes for you to ride in the Avatar Rides channel. We’ll be adding more rides to the Avatar Rides channel, so check back regularly to discover what’s new.

3. TAKE YOUR AVATAR FOR A RIDE

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.

4. BERNARD, YOUR PACING PARTNER

Race against your avatar head to head. Your pacing partner will borrow their settings from Bernard, so set his power settings accordingly and get to work!

DROP-IN RIDES CHANNEL

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.

Looking for a challenge?

Start at the beginning of the ride and count how many people you can chase down on your ride.

MONT VENTOUX FROM SAULT

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 1,900m

IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP KONA

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.

THE ONE IN TWENTY

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!

What devices do Avatars work on?

Does my avatar translate between devices

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.

Why aren’t avatars available on Android?

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.
