Welcome to the freshest collection of routes on FulGaz.

First time contributor, John Bennett brings us a varied selection of routes from England and Wales. We are very excited to add Machynlleth mountain to FulGaz, 474m of climbing with an average of 4.4% that kicks up to 14% in some key sections.

Thank you to John for this great collection.

The New Forest

A 50 Km anti-clockwise ride through the ancient New Forest in southern England, which despite the name was established by William the Conqueror in 1088. On the ride you will encounter the wildlife that the park is famous for including the iconic New Forest ponies, feral donkeys and large horned cattle roaming free which you will need to keep an eye out for. There are no major climbs on the ride but plenty of undulating terrain through a variety of woodland, parkland and open heathland. The last part of the ride ends with a flyby across an ex WWII airfield.

Cotswolds Hills and Villages

A rolling ride through the Cotswolds. The ride starts at the pretty village of Blockley before climbing the ominously entitled Hangman’s Hill. A quick promenade up and down Chipping Campden’s famous high street is followed by the climb of Dyer’s Hill, 80m at 7% average gradient. Then we plunge down to the next sightseeing spot, Broadway, the archetypal chocolate box Cotswold village. The ride finishes with a long drag up to the windswept hilltop village of Snowshill, before a false flat leads to the final short sharp climb.

Machynlleth Mountain

The loneliness of the long distance cyclist is shown to true effect on this ride which includes one of Britain’s very few truly Alpine climbs; the 500m Machynlleth mountain (OFFICIAL Wales climb) the second highest mountain pass in Wales after the Gospel Pass. Although, the average gradient is a modest 4%, the last 4k averages at over 8%. A super fast descent down the mountain follows.

Just Gorge-ous

This ride encapsulates all that makes the Mendip hills a mecca for cyclists in the West of England, with two fearsome climbs. We start with a gentle climb out of the pretty village of Priddy, before descending the famous Cheddar Gorge. Look out for some goats on the rocks above the gorge! Two hard climbs follow, including Burrington Combe which is actually longer and gains greater elevation than Cheddar Gorge. The ride then returns over the Mendips to finish up back on Priddy Green. Watch out for the chase down of a group of club riders at the finish!
