1. Akuna Bay To West Head
Ride one of the most visually stunning rides in New South Wales, Australia. Located in Ku-Ring-Gai Chase national park, Akuna Bay is a favourite spot amongst cyclists looking to up in the quiet roads of the park. You can expect fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean, Pittwater and Palm Beach.
Stage opens Monday 17 Jan.
2. Col du Galibier
This northern approach from Valloire is the climb most people have in mind when talking about Col du Galibier. It’s the tougher, longer and more popular ascent, regularly featuring in Tour de France and climbed annually by the riders taking part in the La Marmotte Gran Fondo cycling sportive.
Stage opens 24 Jan.
3. Coast to Coast South Africa
This journey in the saddle begins just outside the village of Betty’s Bay, a small coastal holiday town in the Overberg region. It is located 100km from Cape Town beneath the Koegelberg Mountain ranges.
This scenic ocean ride from Betty’s Bay to Gordons Bay is breathtakingly beautiful, offering a variety of beaches, mountain ranges and sublime summer playgrounds along the way. This is a road not often travelled and truly one of South Africa’s best kept secrets.
Stage opens Monday 31 Jan.
1. Download FulGaz and set up a free account
Downloading the trial gives you full access to FulGaz with no restrictions on content, or how often or how far you ride.
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.
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.
