The Richmond refresh of February 6, 2020 added the ability to u-turn on Richmond, while also adding the reverse version of the 2015 UCI Worlds course as an event-only route.

This route makes for exciting racing, as punchy riders can get away on the three climbs of the first half of the circuit followed by wattage workhorses attempting to pull them back on the back half.

Route Description

Broad St climb

We begin with a descent of Governor Street, followed by a climb up Broad Street to the KOM banner. Keep pushing over the crest, descending 23rd Street quickly, then try to keep your momentum up as you hit the quick kicker on 25th-Franklin Street.

The first part of this timed KOM is the steepest bit of the course, topping out at 22% as you turn the corner onto Franklin Street!

Then it’s a twisty descent of Libby Hill followed by a bit of flat before we hit the third and final climb of the route: E Main Street. This is the longest climb, but isn’t terribly steep, so settle in, use the draft, and keep your effort steady.

E Main St climb

Once the road flattens out it takes a sharp right, then a sharp left. Just after the sharp left is the finish line of Zwift’s shortest sprint ever, the Broad Street Reverse! Now we’re on the flat second half of this route, which includes another sprint (Monument Avenue Reverse) before we make our way back through the start/finish banner.
