Like all good rides on FulGaz, there’s always a bit of a story to tell them. 

Originally FulGaz’ founder, Mike, had planned to fly to Uluru to record the all important final stage of the Hope Cycle, Tour of Australia presented by Lifeline. 

His bags were packed, his ticket was booked and he was ready to record the stunning red centre of Australia. 

He tried on three separate occasions to visit Uluru but a series of rolling lockdowns across the country between March – August left the travel plans in disarray and we needed a solution fast.

Thankfully, we were able to get in touch with local rider, Juan Manuel Arango, who lives and works in the remote community of Yulara. just next to Uluru. 

Having never filmed for FulGaz before, Juan jumped at the opportunity and produced a stunning ride worthy of the final stage of the Hope Cycle – Tour of Australia. 

ABOUT THE RIDE

Nothing says “Australia” more in our minds than the stunning dawn colours of Uluru captured in this video.  

This ride video starts at sunrise and you journey towards “the Rock” which dominates the landscape. You’ll turn on to a small dirt track and ride so close to Uluru you can almost touch it before turning away and heading back along the main highway. 

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Meegan and the team at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and the traditional owners the Yankunytjatjara and Pitjantjatjara people. 

We pay our respects to the traditional custodians of this land, the Yankunytjatjara and Pitjantjatjara people, the traditional landowners of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park people and recognise their elders past, present and emerging.
