Thank you!!! I always wonder where the Pacers are when I decide to ride.
Oh this is super cool! I’d would use this more often.
Oooooh great resource, thank you guys!
Will this calendar be updated regularly?
Eric – Thank you so much for this. Much appreciated.
Nice. Thanks for putting this together. This is more valuable to me than the daily world schedule, now that you can join any world through a workout and events occur in any world. I rarely free ride but often fancy joining a Pace Partner.
Thank you, Eric. This table is really helpful. Is it possible to add this RoboPacer schedule to your Course Calendar page listed under your Reference tab so we always have the information at hand?
This is sooo good!
I’d like to echo the other comments about how helpful article is! I’d also like to say a big thanks to the Zwift team for doing a great job with the Robo Pacers (they’ll always Pace Partners to me!). You really got this right!
Could you add a link to this article from the course calendar post?
Is this accurate? I just jumped on and this was what was available 2 x pacers at 1.1W/kg – one each at Watopia/Makuri 2 x pacers at 1.4W/kg – one each at Watopia/Makuri 2 x pacers at 1.7W/kg – one each at Watopia/Makuri 2 x pacers at 2.3W/kg – one each at Watopia/Makuri 2 x pacers at 2.7W/kg – one each at Watopia/Makuri 2 x pacers at 2.8W/kg – one each at Watopia/Makuri 2 x pacers at 3.0W/kg – one each at Watopia/Makuri 2 x pacers at 3.4W/kg – one each at Watopia/Makuri 2 x pacers at 3.5W/kg – one… Read more »
In the app, you will always see the current effort the pacers expend. As they are not constant like in the beginning, but variable with higher effort during climbs and lower effort on flat or downhill segments, the efforts shown in the app fluctuate. So you might see gaps between 1.7 and 2.3W/kg when the slower pacer is riding downhill and the faster pacer uphill.
Anyone has any idea what time does the changeover happen? I notice the zwift worlds change at 12am Eastern Time as expected…but the robopacer rides have not changed over yet?
Over at https://zwiftinsider.com/robopacers/ it says they change on “Monday at 7am UTC”, which seems to be accurate based on my experience.
This is awesome and I refer to it often. Out of curiosity: do you have to manually update the tables or do you have some type of automated script?
It’s manual, but I’ve made it so I can set it all up for several months quite easily, then forget about it.
So great to have this. Bookmarking.
Awesome reference Eric! Question though; when I reach the “home” screen in Zwift, only “D” (yellow) Robo-Pacers show up – no A, B or C Pacers. What am I missing?
You’re missing that you can click and drag to scroll the list to the right. 🙂
I am the missing link😜
Love the RoboPacers. Challenged my club to meet on a paced ride, roll off the front at designated time, and ttt to try and gain a lap. So fun
Someone may have already asked this, but are the pacer’s always on those routes? Even if that guest world is not scheduled for the current day?
Yes, they are.
Thanks for the quick response!
Thanks so much for this! Really helpful. Is it possible to know when the RoboPacer passes through the start/finish of a particular course? I’d like to do the Big Foot Hills full route and then know when to join, so I don’t start half way round for example! I know you can track them on the map, to see where they currently are…. I’m guessing possibly not, as I assume their lap times are governed by how many people ride in the group etc?
Correct. No way to know when a RoboPacer starts their lap, except to look at their current position in the app.
The lap times do change but it’s not by too much. So you could say predict the start time of the lap for the next 24 hours with reasonable accuracy. This week Big Foot Hills lap times have been about 1:41 to 1:44.
The jan 23 table looks like it needs some fixing up. Nothing listed for Jacque that week, affecting the lower cells too.
Fixed. Thanks for the heads up, Tim!
Jan 23-29 says that Constance is on Neokyo all nighter, but in the app it’s Turf n Surf, @Eric Schlange
Is this a humblebrag from someone able to keep up with Constance? ;P
Out of curiosity how far in advanced do you know where the pace partners will be
They follow a set rotation, so in theory I know as far in advance as I want to go!
It’s a really simple pattern, you can predict it too yourself. Until zwift decides to change it up.
Thank you Eric!
Great info. I think Zwift underestimates the popularity and usefulness of RoboPacer. I use it to throttle myself for recovery rides, have fun on rides at my usual pace, and push myself beyond what is comfortable. To me, it is the best feature in Zwift. As a rider in my late 60’s I am finding the yellow block everything I need and would love if Zwift had more options like between Miguel (which is comfortable and I have to pay attention) and Maria, where if I go off the back for any reason it is almost impossible for me to… Read more »
Quick question – this morning (745 am Chicago time), I wanted to do a ride with Maria as the pacer, but when I opened and logged into Zwift on my PC, her ride was not listed in the horitzontal list of pacer ride options (and yes, I dragged the list to the left). Any idea why this was missing? I have noticed this for other robopacers as well at various times. Thanks
Hey Eric! May I suggest adding the raw Wattage next to each pacer? I believe their weights have been normalized at 75kg so Maria would be 165Watts, Miguel 135Watts etc.
Thanks for putting this together so awesome! Question about the two routes listed each week: how do you know which of the two routes they will be on at a particular time of day? Or does it alternate daily?
They’re on both. One is Makuri Islands, the other Watopia.
Thanks Eric, any idea when the pacers teleport will be available? thanks
Just pointing out that you (wisely) chose to use black text on a yellow background for the D RoboPacers. Unfortunately, in Zwift, the Ds have white text on Yellow, which is really hard to read (i.e. D.Maria is 14 or 24m back – hard to tell). Any chance you could ask Zwift HQ to make the same (smart) fix in text color that you made here?
