The Tour Route

Riders will need to complete all 15 stages (in a relay as a team or solo) in three weeks to be classified as finishers. We anticipate each stage will take approximately 60-90mins to complete depending on your riding ability.

Prizes will be awarded along the way for all sorts of acheivements so make sure you follow FULGAZ on Facebook to keep up to date with all of the fun, or better yet join our FulGaz Riders Group Page here. Remember this isn't about crossing the line first, it's about enjoying yourself along the way.
