Start & Finish

If you choose this route, the game will spawn you on Constitution Hill near Buckingham Palace, riding in what is typically the reverse direction (westward). Since riders are placed at various points near Buckingham Palace on Constitution Hill, we chose to start our Strava segment at the Classique banner which is approximately 1.5km from the spawn point.

Events begin at the start pens, giving you approximately a 7.5km lead in to the Classique banner where your lap officially begins.

A free ride of Greatest London Loop begins on the Classique route in the reverse direction, but only covers a portion of it before turning onto the Greater London roads. You are then taken over the bridge, through the subway and into the “Richmond Park” countryside which was part of the January 2018 London expansion.

The subway tunnels carry you back into London, over the bridge and through the start/finish banner on the red pavement of the Classique.

Riders are taken back through the start/finish then into the subway tunnels to the countryside, where they finish the route with a climb up Keith Hill.

The route ends at the KOM banner, so more than half the overall elevation gain is completed in the final 4.1km!

Route Description

This mostly flat route begins in the city with a lap of Greater London Flat in the reverse direction, which diverts onto a nearly-complete reverse lap of the Classique route. We do this again (Greater London into Classique), then hit Greater London Flat for a third time, but before we reach the Classique we hang a right to cross the Thames.

Once across the Thames we head through the Underground tunnel, then hit the final climb, Leith Hill.

The route ends at the KOM banner, so more than half the overall elevation gain is in the final 5km!

London Loop with Box Hill Finish

“London Loop with Box Hill Finish” is a custom route introduced for stage 8 of January 2019’s Tour de Zwift

Route Profile

This route is simply the London Loop with a different finish line. The full London Loop takes you along the Thames, down through underground tunnels, up the Box Hill KOM, down Fox Hill, up the tunnels and through the start/finish banner for your next lap. On your final lap of this route, you finish at the Box Hill KOM banner instead of descending Fox Hill.

The longer version of this route is approximately 2.5 laps of London Loop, while the shorter version is 1.5 laps.

London Pretzel

At the time of its release, the “London Pretzel” route was the only route covering all London roads. In fact, it covered them all in both directions. The route leaves off newer additions to the London course, but it’s still a fun one if you’re looking for a longer ride with a mix of flat efforts broken up by two decent climb sections.

PRL Half

The London course’s “PRL Half” route is meant to mimic the distance (but not the full course) of the real Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46. It takes you on four circuits of the “London Loop“, then turns around at the Surrey roundabout and heads towards the sprint and finish banner on The Mall.

PRL Full

The London course’s “PRL Full” route is meant to mimic the distance (but not the full course) of the real Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100. It takes you on eleven circuits of the “London Loop“, then turns around at the Surrey roundabout and heads towards the sprint and finish banner on The Mall.

Although I can’t seem to find numbers for the 2016 course, it appears that Zwift’s version has significantly more elevation gain than the real-life course. (The 2013 course had a gain of 6,167′.)

Start & Finish

This route's official start/end point is the KOM banner atop the Fox Hill climb. That means you'll have a lead-in of approximately 5 km before the route actually starts, and that lead-in includes a climb up Fox Hill!

We’ve created two Strava segments, one for the “event version” (which begins at the start pens) and one which begins at the Fox Hill KOM banner.

Route Description

Route profile by ZwiftHub – the place to plan and track your route achievements!

London’s “Surrey Hills” route takes you on a complete tour of all the climbs on the London course, riding over each pass in both directions. Since the route keeps you almost entirely off of flat ground, you get a lot of climbing done in just over 40km. Interestingly, this route begins at a different spawn point then other London routes, facing in what is typically the reverse direction. This bypasses the typical flat London start so you can get climbing quickly! Once you’re in the Surrey Hills, you will continue to ride this route, never going back into the city or crossing the start/finish banner. One bummer about how this route works is it dumps you onto the Box Hill KOM after the start line, which means you don’t get credit for that segment.

Route Description

The route is essentially flat for the first half, then very hilly for the back half. A bit like the Richmond 2015 UCI course in that respect, except more than twice as long.
