This week Jimmy Brown shares with us some stunning rides from the Irish countryside. 

Jimmy has really developed an eye for capturing the stunning beauty of his region, and sharing it with the FulGaz community. 
Most of these routes are filmed on sunny Irish days, making them a joy to ride.

Being a triathlete, Jimmy has a penchant for longer routes on FulGaz, such as the Ring of the Reeks below, so the new ride trimming feature is ideal for those of you looking to trim a route to something a bit shorter. 

Ride trimming enables you to select and save a custom “section” of any ride. Now you can start and finish your ride at any point by creating your section. Sections can also be used for group rides. 

You can find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz App or by searching Jimmy..
