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!
This week’s collection takes us on a journey around the world, starting in Germany, then to the United States, Switzerland (Jeff Stuart), and Australia (Martin Steffens).
We also welcome two new contributors, Martin Becker from Germany and Dan Phillips from the USA.
You can find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz App.
This is the first leg of a ride through "The Olde Land“ - a region close to Hamburg with a long history of fruit-growing on the fertile marshland soil. The terrain is therefore as flat as it gets, apart from the dykes securing the land from floods rushing in from the North Sea via the river Elbe. The ride is filmed from such a dyke, so a relatively high vantage point, allowing nice and relaxing views across the orchards, following the dykes all the way to the river Elbe, passing through villages with typical frame houses and their beautiful gardens with apple and cherry trees.More Info

Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station is renowned as the station which received and relayed to the world the first televised footage of astronaut Neil Armstrong setting foot on the Moon on 20 July 1969. Apart from television pictures, Honeysuckle Creek and Canberra Deep Space Communications Complex (Tidbinbilla) had communication and telemetry contact with the Eagle lunar and Columbia command modules. In fact, the first steps on the Moon were transmitted from Honeysuckle Creek. The ride starts in the small village of Tharwa, heads south through the Naas Valley, before taking a right turn onto Apollo Road for a 9KM climb up to the top of Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station. It is a beautiful ride, on a sunny day, with a great climb, almost 30km long.More Info
