This week we take a trip to the USA, Aotearoa, Ireland and England for a taste of what each region has to offer.

There’s one ride missing from Peter Joyce’s Irish collection which is stage 4 of the upcoming French Tour so if you like these two you’ll LOVE the yet-to-be-released North Cork Classic.

The rides from Aotearoa feature two very popular holiday destinations for Kiwi’s and are a must ofr anyone who is planning a holiday to the North island. Mt Maunganui is a stunning seaside town and Lake Taupo is the largest freshwater lake in the Southern hemisphere. 

A few new rides from Nevada and Seattle are a welcome addition to FulGaz. 

Thank you to all of this week’s contributors.
