“Lutscher CCW” Route Details (Innsbruck)

Animated “Lutscher CCW” Route Details (Innsbruck) Map
Animated map provided by ZwiftHacks

Innsbruck’s “Lutscher” (German for lollipop) is a lollipop route, meaning you have a lead in then one or more circuits to ride. The Lutscher CCW takes you over the climbing circuit in a counter-clockwise direction.

The route begins at the start/finish banner then places you on the KOM loop for as many laps as you can handle. With Innsbruck’s steep climbs this means you can pack in a lot of climbing if you wish!

Route Description

Route profile by ZwiftHub – the place to plan and track your route achievements!

Both Lutscher routes (Lutscher and Lutscher CCW) officially begin when you ride through the KOM banner for the first time. This means the lead-in (when free riding or in an event) includes climbing up to the banner!

Your first lap of the route is completed (and you will receive your badge) after you cross the KOM banner for the second time.

For Lutscher CCW, some of the above is incorrect. It doesn’t start in town and there’s virtually no lead-in. The route starts just before the KOM. At least that’s what just happened on a meetup that I did.

Same happened to me in a meet-up today. No lead in and total for route badge was only just over 9miles.

very deceptive picture you have there, it looks like you start on top and go down then up but actually you go up 2 times

Zwift tells you that the route each way will be about 13.5km and about 400m ascent but its actually double that for both of them as you have to do the climb twice to complete it. I find this a very annoying feature of Zwift that they completely mislead you on the distance and climb, its very difficult to choose a ride for the time that you have or the challenge you want.

‘Mr Min, how long should we make the route badge for Lutscher CCW?’
’How far away is your house from work?’
’13.7km’
’Make it that’

Yep, same here … I didn’t get the “Route Complete” splash until just after the second loop of the KOM … 22.9km and 827m climbing. A bit annoying if you only really had time for an hour’s ride. Dinner’s gonna be late tonight now 😫

With the lead-in, I put in 22.8km to get the route badge. So there is slight fluctuation in distances. Remember in order to get the badge, select the route from the list (don’t free ride) and ride until the banner pops up.

It starts in town if you free ride it, but not if you choose it for a meetup (then it starts just before the summit banner missing out the lead-in climb)

Hi Eric,

as always, thank you for providing this website, it is a great help.

For this course, the numbers seem to be mixed up a little:

For the loop itself, the elevation gain is 403m, the other 425 are for the lead in, so you are showing the total here.

Best,

Stefan

Why not put the actual distance as the lead in and the route distance… Makes sense to do it that way, considering you o my get the badge if you complete the route and lead in?!!!

That would make sense, however we all know Zwift are completely opposed to common sense eg: close the entire app to do a different route. I get the impression no one at Zwift actually uses Zwift, or they just don’t mind a sloppy customer experience.

I think it’s because some may want to do multiple loops, in which case one needs to know both the lead-in and the route distance.

Love zwift. The incorrect info is disappointing as I budgeted time based upon the stats listed at the top. Only learned that you have to ride Thru the Kom 2x from a friend. Yes, could have learned if I read the whole description.
its probably a lot of effort to maintain this site. However, if the table of all routes, were accurate, that would be most helpful.
best wishes in Maintence.
