Once again, we’ve got lots of fun events to choose from on Zwift this weekend. Tour de Zwift is wrapping up (but still very busy with all the Rebel Route badge hunters), Levi’s GranFondo has entered the building, and the Tiny Races are on a new route for the first time ever. See our picks below!
✅ New Route ✅ Popular Event ✅ Kit Unlock ✅ Highly Competitive
Tour de Zwift 2024 is almost over, and lots of riders are still showing up for every event. This weekend the “Epic” races continue. Choose from Stage 7’s race on New York’s Everything Bagel (34.3km, 543m) or Stage 8 on Watopia’s Spiral into the Volcano (55.6km, 324m).
If you don’t want to race or are just looking for a shorter TdZ route, check out the TdZ group rides this weekend. They have a special place in our heart, since they’re all former Rebel Routes that have just been added to the game!

How We Make Our Picks
We choose each weekend’s Notable Events based on a variety of factors including:
- Is the event unique/innovative in some way?
- Are celebrities (pro riders, etc) attending/leading?
- Are signup counts already high, meaning the event is extra-popular?
- Does the ride include desirable unlocks or prizes?
- Does the event appeal to ladies on Zwift? (We like to support this under-represented group!)
- Is it for a good cause?
- Is it just plain crazy (extra long races, world record attempts, etc)?
- Is it a long-running, popular weekly event with a dedicated leader who deserves a shout out?
In the end, we want to call attention to events that are extra-special and therefore extra-appealing to Zwifters. If you think your event qualifies, comment below with a link/details and we may just include it in an upcoming post!
