New York’s “The Highline” is aptly named after Manhattan’s “High Line” elevated park, since the route keeps you on the elevated glass roads of Zwift’s futuristic NYC.
This route is fairly tame in terms of total climbing, maintaining a rolling profile except when it takes you over the forward KOM (1.36km, 6.4%) which tops out at 17% grade. But if you’re racing multiple laps of this route, it’s gonna hurt!
This route has one of the funkiest lead-in sections of any Zwift route. When free riding it’s around 5.2km long, with 127m (416′) of climbing, and takes you on roads not covered by the actual route as you make your way up to the NYC KOM banner.
In events your lead-in is even longer (10km) since you have to start from the pens.
The actual route (and our Strava segments) begin at the KOM banner, after the lead-in. When you ride through the KOM banner a second time, you’ve completed one lap of the route.
