This week’s Top Up Tuesday has been recorded and filmed by none other than FulGaz’ resident Ride Video Engineer, Aidan Buttigieg.

Hailing from Melbourne, this 23 year-old is a classic hard man on the bike, racing at the highest domestic level in Australia for the National Road Series team, CycleHouse, where he is their resident puncheur.

While the local racing calendar has been very limited in 2020, he still managed to snag the sprint points jersey in the second oldest one day race in the world, the Melbourne to Warrnambool, a 262km (162 mile) in the south of Australia.

This week, he’s filmed a collection of fun and interesting rides from his hometown, Melbourne.

Bentons Road Loop

A well known local loop towards the Mornington Peninsula from Frankston in Melbourne’s south-east. This loop takes you through some of the more unseen and unknown gems in the area such as Derril Road. This ride finishes with a sweet 2km/1.2mile climb known as the Two Bays Climb.

Albert Park Lake Reverse

One lap of the iconic Albert Park Lake in reverse, on a cold winter’s morning in Melbourne. While it’s quiet with the city in lockdown, you can imagine how busy these roads become during the peak of Australian summer. Enjoy the peace and quiet training whilst you can.

Albert Park Lake

A newly completed lap of the lake and the iconic Formula 1 circuit. Whether you’re looking for a place to do intervals, or just for an easy roll, Albert Park Lake is an extremely useful loop for cyclists.

With only one set of traffic lights to navigate, you’re sure to get some quality riding in, all whilst being relatively close to the inner Bayside suburbs.
