In partnership with the Multiple Sclerosis Limited, FulGaz is proud to be a part of the 2021 MS Gong Ride Virtual.

The iconic route will enable riders to enjoy the iconic ride from Sydney to Wollongong all from the comfort of their homes via FulGaz.

Riders will be tested as they ride the full distance from Sydney to Wollongong on FulGaz, the 82km route features 1002 metres of climbing.

You’ll make your way through the Royal National Park, enjoy the incredible ocean views from Stanwell Tops and will ride over the breathtaking Sea Cliff Bridge, before crossing the finish line in Wollongong amongst a backdrop of surf, sun and sand.

We’ll ride the virtual edition together on Sunday 7 November 6am AEDT via the dedicated event channel, you can see this in the FulGaz app now.

New to FulGaz? Here's the quick start guide.

1. Download FulGaz and set up a free account
In celebration of the World Series, we’re offering new subscribers a 30-day free trial, no credit card required.

Downloading the trial gives you full access to FulGaz with no restrictions on content, or how often or how far you ride. If you’re returning to FulGaz for another go, send us a support ticket and we’ll hook you up with another trial on the house.

2. Connect your devices
When you load up FulGaz and hit Get Started, you’ll be greeted with a pairing screen. Here your smart bike/trainer/speed sensor will be picked up and listed. Select the devices you’d like to connect and click Let’s Ride.

Pro Tip If you can’t see your devices when trying to connect, they are most likely paired with another app (RGT, Rouvy, Zwift). You will need to deselect your trainer from that app’s pairing screen, quit that app, and restart FulGaz.

3. Set your preferences, weight and slope scaling
Click the settings icon to take a moment to set your display preference (metric or imperial). For the most realistic experience, enter your weight and bike weight. There are many other settings here also; it’s best to get a feel for riding FulGaz first before adjusting these. Start at around 60% uphill to get the feel. You can adjust this in ride also.

Pro Tip If you find the hills too hard, you can adjust the Slope Scaling, this is essentially the “trainer difficulty”. Adjusting this won’t make you faster, but it will make hills easier!

4. Download a video and ride
We always suggest downloading the video ahead of time. For any event you must download the video.  Before the event, test your set up with something from the Easy collection. These rides will give you a good “feel” for how FulGaz looks and interacts with your trainer or smart bike.

5. Get event-ready
Before you start your event, make sure you turn up at the start line ready.

Here’s a quick checklist

      • Download the ride ahead of time
      • If joining us on Zoom, download the app and run it on a different device.
      • Stay hydrated – have at least two bottles of water available
      • Have a towel and fan to help you cool down.
