Route Description

The route begins on a slight descent near Richmond’s start/finish banner, but the road which quickly gets steeper down Governor Street. Enjoy the free speed now, because as soon as you get to the bottom the 23rd Street KOM section begins. This climb ends at the 23rd Street KOM banner.

A quick descent down 23rd St takes you onto the start of the second (and final) timed KOM of this route, simply called the “KOM Reverse” in game. This climb starts off very steep, hitting 22% (the steepest pitch in Zwift?) around the first right-hand bend before leveling into a false flat to the KOM banner atop Libby Hill.

Next you’ll fly down the twisty cobbles of Libby Hill to the waterfront for the flattest portion of the course, which is approximately 2.5km long with a few rollers. This brings you to the final climb of the route, up East Main Street. It’s the longest climb on the loop (1.2km at 3.8%), but is not a timed KOM segment.

At the top of this climb the road flattens out and you’ll turn two rights, heading through the start/finish banner for additional laps.
