Watopia’s “Seaside Sprint” began as a Rebel Route in August 2019. Zwift made it an official (albeit event-only) route in its February 2020 update.
At only 6.3km (3.9 miles) this is the shortest Watopia loop which includes a sprint segment, making it perfect for races that include sprint points or for group rides with interval efforts like Sprintapalooza. As a route, this is the smallest loop on Watopia apart from Volcano Circuit and Volcano Circuit CCW.
Length: 6.3 km (3.9 miles)
Elevation: 39 m (128‘)

Banners and Leaderboards
(in order of appearance)
This clockwise loop begins at the sprint banner at the end of the Julynn Washington Bridge (JWB) between the Esses and Italian Villas. After passing under the banner you will ride over the cobbles of the Italian Villas, hang a right onto the twisty gravel road, then cross the land bridge to our magmatic friend, the Volcano.
Turn right at the fork after the land bridge, climbing up the short pitch into the volcano, and you will find yourself going through the Volcano Circuit banner. The lap counter just after the banner counts down how many laps you’ve got left.
Ride out of the volcano, turn right onto the glass bridge, then another right into the Esses. The Esses roller coaster will spit you out onto the short reverse sprint over the JWB.
That’s one lap… how many more have you got left?
