Feeling inspired we’re releasing a real mixed bag of rides to keep the legs moving this January!

With a great selection of rides from the UK, including two from the list of official climbs list, there is a little bit of something for everyone.

We’ve also added the Passo Di Gavia, which stands at 2,621 metres above sea level and is one of THE iconic Italian climbs. 

Make sure you check out the Wombat Gravel Loop for something a bit different through the Aussie bush. Keep an eye out for the car leaving the petrol station, he doesn’t see seem to see you!
