Since Zwift’s early days it has been a standard to direct new Zwifters to read the unofficial manual for Zwift from James Gill aka TitaniumGeek over at And while you should definitely still do that, Zwift now has a very good user guide on their support website. This is the what, where, and how for the official Zwift user guide.

The What

Zwift has a whole knowledge base at its support site, broken down into different sections:

  • Getting Started
  • Zwift Rider’s Guide
  • Zwift Runner’s Guide
  • Technical Issues
  • FAQs
  • Known Issues

You can probably guess the content from the titles…

The Where

Where is simple: Go to and open the Knowledge Base.

The How

User guides

You can just browse around for interesting bits but also read Getting Started, Zwift Rider’s Guide, and Zwift Runner’s Guide as complete user guides.

Open the section, e.g. Zwift Rider’s Guide, and you will be presented with a list of the chapters/articles in the guide:

Zwift Rider’s Guide is actually so long that its table of contents span multiple pages.

Troubleshooting Guides and FAQ

If you are troubleshooting your Zwift setup there can be good bits of information in Technical Issues and Known Issues.

FAQs is just that – a collection of frequently asked questions about Zwift.

Look for the orange Follow button and use that to subscribe to e-mails when something changes:

  • Subscribe on the table of contents page for any section and get an e-mail when a new chapter/article is added by Zwift

The most important article

There is one page in particular I recommend all Zwifters to follow: The Known Issues section.

You should definitely be aware of the Known Issues: Master Post and subscribe to changes to it.

So there you have it–an introduction to Zwift’s online user manual. Enjoy!
