New “Peak Zwift” Achieved: 16,512

New “Peak Zwift” Achieved: 16,512

Last week’s record of 16,231 Zwifters online wasn’t surprising, given it was the first week of Tour de Zwift. But we’ll admit we were a bit surprised when that record was broken again this week.

That’s right: today we hit a new high, just confirmed by Zwift HQ: 16,512 concurrent users on Zwift!

This represents a 26.4% increase over last year’s high of 13,064.

Typically the weekly high traffic point is on Tuesday around 11am PST, and that’s exactly when we saw today’s traffic spike. Of course, this is also the busiest time of Zwift’s year, with much of the northern hemisphere dealing with cold temperatures, poor weather, and shortened daylight hours.

Care to Make a Bet?

Zwiftcast hosts Simon, Nathan, and Shane have been wagering on what the winter season’s high point will be, and they’ve invited some guests to place their bets as well. What do you think? Have we just seen this season’s “peak Zwift”? Or will it go higher? Here are the current guesses:

  • DC Rainmaker: 21,000
  • Nathan Guerra: 20,000
  • Eric Schlange: 18,289
  • Simon Schofield: 18,000
  • Shane Miller: 16,666

Would be interesting to see the numbers on the total number of folks on Zwift in a 24 hour period. I am sure there are lots of Zwifters not on during that peak time so is there a way to see total for a single full day?

11:00am PST means Zwift is very popular in Europe. Everyone else is working or sleeping
