Route Description

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

Zwift created this route using GPS data to perfectly match the incline and distance of the storied climb with its 21 hairpin turns. The climb to Alp d’Huez actually has two different finish points: the “tourist version” and the Tour de France version. Alpe du Zwift matches the tourist version, which is ~2km shorter with 40 meters less climbing than the TdF. In all, Alpe du Zwift is 12.24km (7.6 miles) long, with a total elevation gain of over 1000 meters (3400′)! Read more >

If you choose this route for a freeride you’ll begin just a few hundred yards before the jungle start pens. Events on Road to Sky now begin in the jungle start pens.

So whatever type of ride you’re doing, you’ll drop into the jungle, wave to the sloth and enjoy a little gravel riding before you hang a right and head up the Alpe.

The route ends at the KOM banner atop Alpe du Zwift.

For a race, is it worth starting with a MTB then switching to a lighter bike?
Just wondering if the 5kms or so is enough of a stretch that you can get a lead and not lose it vs just starting with a lighter bike from the start

I’d say a definite yes. I hate riding the gravel in my Tron bike

Hi, is it possible to invite a friend to join in a meet-up for Alpe Du Zwift (road to sky), even if that friend is level 5?

I just did this route, BIG step up for me so super pleased. Is it really only 380xp though? That seems a bit stingy 🙁
