We’ve selected a mixture of races and social rides at a variety of paces and lengths this week… with a special focus on Urukazi, since Zwifters love new roads!
🤝 Stage 5 | Tour of Makuri Islands
We’re more than halfway through Zwift’s big “Tour of Makuri Islands” and this weekend Stage 5 events begin… on two new Urukazi routes!
There are two courses to tackle for stage 5 rides: (A) Makuri 40 measured at 40km and the shorter (B) Turf N Surf route at 24.7km. With a large number of attendees already signed up, this is the “must-do” event over the weekend!

🤝 Vikings Valhalla Sunday Skaal
The weekly Sunday Skaal event from the Vikings team is a popular weekly long ride with a “no one gets dropped” approach. Each category has a leader, and riders are expected to respect the group’s pace.
This week they’re on the new Makuri 40 route for 100km, with two categories to choose from:
- C (2.3-2.7 w/kg)
- D (1.7-2.1 w/kg)

🥇Stage 3: Race Makuri – Turf N Surf
The 3rd stage of Zwift’s monthly ZRacing series is being held on the new Turf N Surf Urukazi route, which means if you finish this race you’ll also get credit for finishing stage 5 of the Tour of Makuri Islands!
This gorgeous route takes you on the two connector roads that are rarely ridden between Urukazi and Yumezi/Neokyo. Watch out for that last connector road through the cavern back to Neokyo – the climb is going to break up the peloton!
