“Royal Pump Room 8” Route Details (Yorkshire)

Animated “Royal Pump Room 8” Route Details (Yorkshire) Map
Animated map provided by ZwiftHacks

One of six routes rolled out with Zwift’s UCI 2019 Worlds map, “Royal Pump Room 8” is a “figure of 8” route which covers all roads in both directions. This is the longest Yorkshire route in game.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, Harrogate made its fortune by drawing often wealthy people to come and drink its waters, which had a supposedly curative effect. Known to locals as “The Pump Rooms”, the Royal Pump Room is one location where these odorous, sulfurous waters emerged from the ground.

The building is located on course at the main intersection, where the northern and southern loops come together.

Route Description

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

From the spawn point, you will ride under the start banner then north to the Queen’s Highway loop. This is the smaller, northern loop of the Yorkshire course, and you ride it here first in a counter-clockwise direction. This northern loop contains the Yorkshire sprint segments (a different segment in each direction), and this time around you will hit the longer sprint.

Next, you will proceed through the start/finish banner and onto the much larger, southern loop portion of the course, in a clockwise direction. Ride up the forward KOM segment, then catch your breath as you descend to the next portion.

Now it’s back to the northern loop, this time in a clockwise direction. This small loop makes up the Duchy Estate route. Finish this loop and head south for one more lap of the big loop, this time in a counter-clockwise direction, beginning with the reverse KOM segment. The route finishes at the start/finish banner.

Be aware that VeloViewer’s 3D profile above is too simplified at the standard settings, so the last uphill at 25km will come as a big surprise! (unless you know the course well).

So look it up at VeloViewer instead, and use the simplify slider to get a more suitable accuracy showing this last uphill…

(I always put that 3D profile on my screens, along with ZwiftGPS and the Zwift app itself – then I have everything I need for a race or even just a free ride)

Could you explain or link to something on how to setup the 3D profile on the screen?

1. Find the link to the segment in VeloViewer. It’s at the bottom of the map above. Click it.
2. Pull the “Simplify” option to the far left (= no simplification).
3. Click the “Get image” button. Choose a suitable resolution and save the image. Open it in your browser or in whatever image viewer you prefer.

Heads up: In racing events the lap banner comes about 100 meters before the finish. If you’re sprinting for the lap banner, just know that you have another 100 meters or so until the actual finish.

Does anyone know how many metres from the start pens in a race until the start of the segment above?

Is there any reason why the forward sprint isnt included as a Strava Segment?
