A pick this week is the lovely Valley Road Loop, a fun little loop through the hills of Maine with some solid climbs to keep you on your toes.
Find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz app or by searching the contributor’s surname.
The first few miles may seem like fun and games, however you’ll soon be treated to a series of climbs with double digit grades. Maine does not understand using switchbacks in their roads or hiking trails. These are straight up climbs. Filmed in the foothills of rural Maine mid springtime, you’ll see apple trees in blossom and lots of green new growth. There is even a daring squirrel darting across the road. Be sure to save something for the last climb, One wonders why they called it Valley Road.More Info
This ride was filmed in late spring and starts in the Ashley village. It continues up the 'Tatton Mile', one of the most popular Strava segments in North Cheshire, and enters Tatton Park through the Rostherne Gate. The 1,000 acre park is popular with cyclists and walkers, look out for glimpses of the resident rare breed sheep and red deer herd. The ride ends at the Knutsford exit.More Info
The ride starts from Tatton Park's Knutsford Gate and takes a loop around the town which was the setting for the fictional 'Cranford' in Mrs Gaskell's 19th century novel of the same name. After leaving Knutsford we ride through the flat, fertile Cheshire plain finishing in picturesque Great Budworth. This typically English village has been the location of film, advertising and TV, including the BBC series War of the Worlds and Our ZooMore Info
