This week, FulGaz contributor Michael Curtis shares with us a collection of rides for those among us who LOVE the longer sessions on the trainer.

Each of these rides will test your endurance and give you a real taste of the English countryside for which FulGaz is renowned.

These rides are ideal for those seeking a longer session on the trainer, if you’re up for it be sure to give the At 100km, Buntingford Gran Fondo!

The common thread through these rides is that they’re Michael’s local weekend routes out through the scenic Hertfordshire countryside. They also cross into Essex and Cambridgeshire.

Remember The Few

Starting in the market town of Buntingford you will cycle the local lanes out to Duxford. During the Second World War on average, sixty Spitfires and Hurricanes were dispersed around Duxford and RAF Fowlmere every day. On 15 September 1940, they twice took to the air to repulse Luftwaffe aircraft intent on bombing London. The final aircraft to land at Duxford before the runway was shortened was Concorde test aircraft G-AXDN, now on display in the Airspace hangar.
