About the Sweet Spot
Cruise alongside influential FulGaz riders in a hosted Group Ride on Zoom. Follow the lead of the best of the best, and get personally acquainted with these fantastic and well-known cyclists! Each week will feature a unique individual representing the FulGaz brand, and you’ll have the opportunity to experience a FulGaz route he or she particularly loves, filmed for FulGaz or has trained in real-time.
These sessions will last between 40 and 60 minutes, but if the course is longer, feel free to continue riding after the Zoom call ends!
No rides currently scheduled. Be sure to check back in for some exciting things upcoming!
1. Download FulGaz and set up a free account. To activate your extended trial, simply enter the promo code found in your registration email.
Downloading the trial gives you full access to FulGaz with no restrictions on content, or how often or how far you ride. If you’re returning to FulGaz for another go, send us a support ticket and we’ll hook you up with another trial on the house.
2. Connect your devices
When you load up FulGaz and hit Get Started, you’ll be greeted with a pairing screen. Here your smart bike/trainer/speed sensor will be picked up and listed. Select the devices you’d like to connect and click Let’s Ride.
Pro Tip If you can’t see your devices when trying to connect, they are most likely paired with another app (RGT, Rouvy, Zwift). You will need to deselect your trainer from that app’s pairing screen, quit that app, and restart FulGaz.
3. Set your preferences, weight and slope scaling
Click the settings icon to take a moment to set your display preference (metric or imperial). For the most realistic experience, enter your weight and bike weight. There are many other settings here also; it’s best to get a feel for riding FulGaz first before adjusting these. Start at around 60% uphill to get the feel. You can adjust this in ride also.
For the event itself, you won’t be able to adjust your bike weight. Only rider weight so please keep that in mind.
Pro Tip If you find the hills too hard, you can adjust the Slope Scaling, this is essentially the “trainer difficulty”. Adjusting this won’t make you faster, but it will make hills easier!
4. Download a video and ride
We always suggest downloading the video ahead of time. For any event you must download the video. Before the event, test your set up with something from the Easy collection. These rides will give you a good “feel” for how FulGaz looks and interacts with your trainer or smart bike.
5. Get event-ready
Before you start your event, make sure you turn up at the start line ready.
