Watching the final stage of the Giro d’Italia unfold was truly a special moment for FulGaz. As a proudly Australian-founded company, we love to see the amazing achievements of Aussie on the world stage.
In honour of Jai Hindley’s historic win at the Giro we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite Italian rides on FulGaz. Enjoy! 🇮🇹
The iconic Sella Ronda - one of the most beautiful rides one can do in Europe! For the first time, the complete circular tour is available in Fulgaz. Start in Selva and climb up the well-known passes: Passo Gardena, Passo Campolongo, Passo Pordoi and Passo Selva. Enjoy the beautiful views on the descents.More Info
The Passo Monte Croce Carnico starts near Paluzza (ITA) and ends right at the borderline to Austria. The climb is fairly flat and is very nice to ride. New tarmac! It was used in Giro d'Italia sometimes but never with a finish at the top. A lot of corners and short gallerys. Good panorama and views into the Carnic Alps.More Info
With stunning views of the Dolomite peaks and the vastness of Europe's largest high alpine pasture, the beauty of the holiday region Alpe di Siusi in South Tyrol is legendary. This ride is tough - starting with a short fast descent on a small local road it soon gets into a very steep climb. After passing Seis am Schlern, the ascent to Alpe di Suisi begins. Once the high plateau is reached, it gets easier and the views of the surrounding Dolomite summits lets you enjoy the ride even more.More Info
Col du Mont Cenis is a mountain pass on the French/Italian border. At the summit is a huge lake created by a dam, powering hydro generation for France and Italy. Some historians believe this pass was used by Hannibal when he made his famous elephant Alps crossing.More Info
Lake Como is a glacial lake which is situated on the border between Switzerland and Italy. There are well-known mountains and tourist destinations on the shores of the lake. This ride starts off in the centre of the old town of Cernobbio on the edge of the lake. Leaving the old town get onto the main road, go past the famous Villa d’Este ritzy hotel, then leave the main road to drop back to the lake and go past Moltrasio and then Laglio where you ride past George Clooney’s house. Rejoin the main road for a bit, then drop down to Brienno and follow the main road to Cadenabbia.More Info
