Elevation:
175 m (574‘)
Lead-In: 10.0 km (6.2 miles)
Map: New York

Start & Finish

This route has one of the funkiest lead-in sections of any Zwift route! It’s around 5km 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.

The actual route (and our Strava segments) begin at the KOM banner, after the lead-in. When you ride through the KOM banner again, you’ve completed one lap of the route.

Route Description

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

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.

Overall, this route is fairly tame in terms of climbing, maintaining a rolling profile except when it takes you over the forward KOM (1.36km, 6.4%) which tops out at 17% grade.

Zipp 808s or 404s for this? Mainly rolling but a steep climb once a lap?

Not a fan of these routes that don’t tell you about the 4 mile lead ins for 6.5 mile course. Is it that hard to estimate the length of the total course and put that in the description?

Most are really close but this route and the Jungle route in Watopia both have 4 mile lead ins for 6 mile course. Big difference riding 10 miles as opposed to 6.

The opening summary states the lead-in is 10k yet the opening paragraph states “This route has one of the funkiest lead-in sections of any Zwift route! It’s around 5km 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.

I rode this route today 30/12/2020 and it was 15.8km in total.

I’ve tried this route several times and never get the badge. Do you have to climb the full KOM twice??

Yes you have to climb the KOM twice, you get the badge at the end of the second climb.
