Klem's rides for beginners

Klem Johnston

Role: Customer Service and Technical Support.
Favourite bike: His lovingly restored 2002 US Postal Team Edition Trek 5200 with modern finishing kit.

 

Hailing from Tasmania off mainland Australia, Klem lives life on two wheels and has ridden bikes all over the world. He also spent a decade in the English royal county of Berkshire where he was a founding member of Woking Cycling Club.

Below are Klem’s top five rides to get you started in FulGaz.  A mix of easy and interesting rides to help you test your setup, and make sure everything is working perfectly.

Centennial Park

The perfect introductory ride to get a “feel” for your new smart bike or trainer. Filmed by FulGaz founder Mike Clucas, it’s a relatively flat loop in Sydney popular with local cyclists. The road gently rises over the first half before rolling back to the start.

Add this one to your favourites as it also doubles as the perfect warm-up or cool-down.

ToB 2018 Stage 8 London

Ride a hot lap (or two or three) around London on closed roads! This full lap of Stage 8 from the 2018 Tour of Britain allows you to either take in the atmosphere and historic landmarks or sprint out of every hairpin to set yourself a fast time!

Ride a single loop or select ‘Laps’ from your ride settings to keep hitting that sprint banner over and over.

Windsor Great Park

Time to tackle the relatively traffic-free roads of Windsor Great Park in England. I love this one as it covers many of my old training roads and I can tell you, it feels just like it does in real life! A gently rolling course (apart from the sting of Breakheart Hill) with some great scenery, but ridden hard it’ll certainly test the legs!

Calpe Hills with Vitus Pro Cycling

Fancy something a little tougher? Join Vitus Pro Cycling for some team training in Spain as they warm up with a couple of short, punchy climbs to get the legs and lungs pumping! This one will certainly let you know if your Slope Scaling settings are dialled in. Try and hold the wheel, these guys are training hard!
