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.
