Thank you for zwift what a great thing I have only been doing it since october – winter here and I just would not get much cycling in if it wasnt for this set up brilliant – some very clever and committed people about- I wish the sprints were a bit clearer I miss most if them some times the leadees help out and identify when they are coming up – nevertheless a great experience – I am 70 my wife bought me my set up for my birthday and I get so much pleasure out of it I am… Read more »

I’ve been on Zwift for 3 years and it has really, really helped me up my game. It’s really evolved a lot since I started and, in my opinion, all for the good. Variety of courses for different levels of interest and ability, different events, etc. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

You’re right about the sprints – and the KOMs, too. I really wish that the course map in the upper right of the screen showed the beginning and end of the sprints. Depending on the zoom level, this would really allow you to better anticipate them.

they actually do show up coming KOM and sprints. They are colored dots on the under side of the map. Not sure if I am explaining correctly but there are heads up on that map. Also on the left the KOM and sprint challenge shows up well in advance on the challenge

You can do Innsbruck any day you want with meetups now. Have a meetup just for yourself. Have to invite one other but they don’t need to actually join. Lutcher is actually shorter as a meetup too I believe, you eliminate the lead-in.

With the new meetup feature I don’t even bother to look at the world calendar much anymore.

The Cumbria weather has been atrocious and Zwift has been our saviour through winter. My husband is 79 and I am 73 but we still do 100 miles a week. We don’t race any more but can’t help it on Zwift. If we can’t get out on the roads we think, ‘good ol d Zwift’ . Good old Watopia. Joyce

Shame Bologna isn’t in the rota. They should plug it into Watopia. Or have a ‘UCI world’: Richmond + Yorkshire + Bologna (although I think Bologna was a stage of a Grand Tour, not a World Championship)

David Cooper

I would love them to do something to combine this shorter worlds into one. I think the problem with that, is that the real world courses use real world GPS data, and I imagine they would want that to still be the case. London has an anomaly in that the Surrey Hills section is shown overlaid on part of the city itself rather than warping across the countryside … not quite so easy if you are moving from Innsbruck to Yorkshire. That said, making the routes from all the UCI courses available on the same day, using World Champs as… Read more »

I am liking the better balance of guest worlds for February. I quite like NYC and London, but have been finding it frustrating having the UCI courses avaiable on so few days … particularly Yorkshire, which is just down the road from me in the real world.

Could be nice if there is something near Richmond…

I suggest they add on to Bologna first as it could include vineyards!

But I’m not as familiar with what they could add that would be interesting near Richmond…

I still hope they add another larger world like London (may Japan?)

or expand Watopia again…

Expanding Watopia because of the many routes

or even London? with a road up to Aberdeen?

Worst calendar ever; London (guest world with longer routes) by the weekend only today for the whole month! I have time to ride longer routes, around 2 hours or more (Surrey Hill, PRL’s, Pretzel, etc) only by the weekend, as most people would i guess. Being stuck with all the UCI circuits (non even a single NY!!!) all weekends is a disaster, also because to ride multiple routes you have to save and restart game…yes there’s always Watopia, but non being able to ride NY and only a single LDN weekend is not acceptable. Hope they’ll roll out a new… Read more »

Eric, isn’t there a way to get future calendars? I’m sure you’ve asked zwift already, but what’s the reason they don’t announce it earlier than on the 1st of the month?
No offense, but archived calendars are pretty useless.

I’m new to Zwift but you can already count me as one of those who isn’t a fan of the Richmond course. Very bland. Once I get my last badge from there then no need for me to go back…off to Watopia on those days I guess.

Hey Eric, I am sure you have asked zwift already, but why is there no possibility to look into the next month? Especially when you are at the end of the month it would be nice to know what’s coming on the first of the following month

David Cooper

It is of no real consequence to anything, but, for me, the calendar is always showing a red mark on yesterday’s date (i.e. as of right now the 11th of February is marked in red) and I would assume the red mark is there to indicate the current date/course. Obviously being in the UK the course changes partway through the day rather than when the date changes, but as the changeover happens at 8pm PST the changeover should happen at 4am UK time … which was almost 7 hours ago.

What gives?

Only a month on from the Richmond refresh and we’re back to the London/NY heavy scheduling, with a meager 3 days of Richmond. I get that there are not a ton of different routes in Richmond, Innsbruck, and Yorkshire, but the other two don’t really have a ton of roads, either. And NY often just feels like two routes: ground or air. I would love to see a more balanced mix.

No idea why Zwift relies so heavily on London and New York. Both courses are very poor compared with the alternatives. New York is a terrible ride experience with little authenticity and London, although better, looks very dated and completely lacks any atmosphere.

London and NY are by far the biggest two worlds after Watopia. If they ran two small worlds at the same time, people would complain that there’s nowhere to go and that you’re riding in a constant stream of cycle traffic.

This is an April Fool’s calendar, right? 30 days in the month, with 16 of them being London, 11 for New York, and only 1, each, for Innsbruck, Richmond, and Yorkshire? Or is this, perhaps, the hint of a new world coming out in an update and replacing many of those London days?

Dear all, I am rather new on Zwift and most likely I am to stupid to understand some things, so your help would be great. I am currently level 11. I would love to train on the mountains and by that ride 2 or three times Alp du Zwift per week. Everytime I open Zwift and check the available courses I cannot find this route. This is annoying as with the corona virus situation no outside cycling is possible. Do I do sth wrong? How can I ride up Alp de Zwift? Maybe if there are restrictions on it they… Read more »

Welcome to Zwift Juergen… Good news, you will be able to ride Alpe du Zwift… the restrictions have recently been lowered so, at level 11, you will be able to ride the Alpe.

  • Make sure you update Zwift so you are running the latest version.
  • Select ‘Watopia’ and within routes you want to select either ‘Road to Sky’ or ‘Tour of Fire and Ice’ … Both of these routes will lead you to Alpe du Zwift.
  • Have fun

Odd: logged on this morning expecting to see Yorkshire, as was posted on the Zwift in-game schedule yesterday, but this morning it was New York. Why?

Nigel Tufnel

I’m guessing that Eric’s response to my question about the April calendar has hit the nail on the head: Lots of people using Zwift right now, and Yorkshire has a very limited amount of virtual tarmac. It looks like April, overall, will be avoiding the smaller three worlds in order to spread people out as much as they can. A third world option would be nice at the moment, but I’m guessing that would require a UI change that no one has been working on (yet).

Henry Ashman

I’m starting to wonder if it’s worth Zwift switching over to 3 worlds on the go at once.

Watopia permanently, then London/New York as the “big guest world”, then rotate Yorkshire/Innsbruck/Richmond as the “small guest/World Champs world”.

As let’s face it, there are 3 distinct tiers of “general use” world in terms of size, route variety etc, why not have the rotation reflect that?
