This week we’ve got a number of new and exciting rides from around the globe to share with you and help keep your indoor riding exciting!
We welcome new contributor Wayne Calder as he takes us on a climb through Haleakala in Upcountry, Maui.
This collection also takes us to Austria (Hans Peter Obwaller), Cordoba (Marcelo Mourier), and the UK (John Bennett).
You can find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz App.
The climb to the top of Haleakala is one of the longest paved climbs in the world at over 3,000 metres from the ocean town of Paia. It’s a long climb which takes you through green pastures in the Upcountry, under blossoming Jacaranda trees, up to the barren lava rock at the top of this dormant volcano. On this segment, we begin our climb above the clouds at the park entrance at approximately 2,000 metres. There’s no warmup to be had here, but the ascent is a fairly steady 5.6% grade with a slight kick at the top where you pass the observatory on your left near the summit.More Info
Have you ever wanted to ride a bike in New York City without all the cars and pedestrians? Here's your chance! This is the TD 5 Boro ride starting in lower Manhattan and winding your way through the five Boros of the Big Apple, you take in the sights and sounds of Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn before finishing on Staten Island.More Info
You may well recognise the filmset stone villages of Castle Combe and Lacock as locations for Harry Potter and War Horse. This ride takes in other equally pretty Cotswold stone villages and lush English countryside on a perfect summer’s day. There are no major climbs but the undulating nature of the countryside will provide a stern workout.More Info
