Amy’s Gran Fondo is Australia’s premier Gran Fondo event. It’s also held at the tail end of what can be a very cycling unfriendly winter. Anything that helps you prepare for the event without getting cold and wet is going to be a good thing. If it’s the exact course, even better.
Specificity is a crucial part of training. The body and mind adapt to specific stresses, so if you trundle round slowly all the time, you get really good at going slowly. Likewise if you can practice an ACTUAL climb rather than generic climbs you’ll get much better at that climb.
FulGaz gives you the opportunity to ride all the key sections of Amy’s Gran Fondo again and again without getting wet or risking life and limb on the Great Ocean Road on weekends.
We’ve included the entire 2016 event from start to finish, plus we’ve broken the ride down into four key sections for you to work on.
