“The Magnificent 8” route was rolled out with Zwift’s October 29th update, and is used as the route for the Halloween dinosaur costume scavenger hunt. Whether this route will hang around and be available for events or free-riding in the future remains to be seen.
The route begins in downtown Watopia, riding through the start/finish banner in the reverse direction. We ride around the volcano, across the land bridge, by the Italian Villas then over the reverse Hilly KOM. (This is the only significant climb of the entire route).
Next, we hang a right onto Ocean Boulevard, then a left to Fuego Flats for a spin through the desert.
This brings us all the way around to a right turn onto the Ocean Boulevard/Epic KOM spur, where we make our way back to downtown Watopia for the finish.
This is actually an excellent flat route–hopefully it will be available for future use!
