Verified Zwift Strava segments for Watopia, London, New York City, Yorkshire, Innsbruck, Richmond, Crit City, Bologna, France, and ParIS

Verified Zwift Strava segments for Watopia, London, New York City, Yorkshire, Innsbruck, Richmond, Crit City, Bologna, France, and ParIS

Why more segments? And what does “verified” mean?

Zwifters have created a lot of Strava segments. Some are logical and accurate, but most are not. Titles sometimes make sense but often confuse things further. Keeping track of them all becomes very intens (sic).

We’ve created numerous Strava segments (all listed below) and labelled them Zwift Insider verified. We verify the start and end points of these segments with our automated Zwift bot.r

Note: we recommend hiding all useless Strava segments, for your own good and the good of the community. Here’s more on the how and why >

Watopia

KOMs:

Sprints:

Routes:

Misc:


Rebel Routes

Note: rebel routes are not available on Zwift’s routes menu. They require some manual navigation, but the payoff is a fun exploration ride where you’ll cover a route few Zwifters have ridden before! (Plus, your Strava ranking will be in the tens or hundreds instead of the thousands.) They also have their own Veloviewer Route Hunter leaderboard.


Richmond

KOMs:

Sprints:

Routes:


London

KOMs:

Sprints:

Routes:


Innsbruck

KOMs:

Sprints:

Strava now requires segments to be over a certain length, and thus will not let us create the Innsbruck sprint segments because it says they’re too short. Help us out by chiming in here if you want to see Strava fix this!

New York City

Strava now requires segments to be over a certain length, and thus will not let us create the NYC sprint segments because it says they’re too short. Help us out by chiming in here if you want to see Strava fix this!

  • Yorkshire Sprint Reverse (Zwift Insider verified)
  • Strava now requires segments to be over a certain length, and thus will not let us create the a forward sprint segment because they say it’s too short. Help us out by chiming in here if you want to see Strava fix this!

Now I just need to someone to write some clever code or whatever to update my strava to include only these ones

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you had a file of all of the useful segments in one file and there was a button in strava where you could simply just load the file instead of having to go back and forth…

Looking at this for the first time as I chose a few segments for a challenge. Wow! So much great work went into putting all of these together- thank you!!!

Eric, Kudos for this. I can only begin to imagine the effort it took to build these. As I progress thru the worlds I have been slowly adding each segment and going thru hell to find buried in sometimes 300+ segments these. I would definitely recommend you pin this into a must read for newbies and those wading into Strava like me. The nyc sprint are super frustrating especially since they are great short sprints. I wish Zwift did a better job on its loop, sprint and kom segment tracking its a pain to collect everything into 1 place and… Read more »

Long Session of Starring segments… Thanks for the consolidated list! I Found a bad link. Astoria Line 8 Pens to Banner (Zwift Insider verified) should point to https://www.strava.com/segments/19277233 as in the Article Page. Also, you still have some Run Routes on here in Watopia even though you have another page for those now. Lastly, do you have a plan to fill in the missing Alpe du Zwift Bend Segments? 😀 @Eric Schlange

Thanks for all your hard work maintaining this! I noticed that the changelog link for Jungle Circuit Reverse 1 Lap links to https://www.strava.com/segments/17039346 which is the run version of that segment.

Hi Eric,

Thank you for your great work.
I noticed the volcano climb doesn’t match exactly with the one presented in the game itself.

But like I said, thank you!!

Hi Eric, I’m using VeloViewer and have all my completed ZI verified Strava segments on there (having hidden all the other segments which took a while!). On VeloViewer I see that many of the segments are missing the city/state fields. Ideally it would be good if they were all labelled so that when filtering on either of these columns it would make it easier to cross check against your list above which ones I haven’t completed in the various courses. It’s pretty obvious which courses the unlabelled ones belong to (although not necessarily the route) but even so it would… Read more »

This is masterful work. I basically used Zwift the first 2+ years I rode it exclusively for workouts, so I never paid attention to segments. Now I’ve started to race a bit more “seriously” (i.e. I am finishing top 10 in Cat-C!!! Wow! ha!) and it’s interesting to see the segments. I’m in the process of doing all the routes and when I started to check the segments I almost fainted. All of the Zwift Insider Verified are hidden, and there are 4927 useless segments per route that are shown! Lunacy. Do you have all of the official routes, KOMs,… Read more »

Eric, any chance of 5, 10 and 25 lap segments for the Volcano
Circuit in both directions? Especially before Monica’s ride next weekend. Yesterday there were dozens of 25-lap attempts while I was out there.

It’s possible (and common?) to get those badges without spinning the same way all the time, though. I think a lot of people do that for the sake of variety.

Eric, Is there anyway to load these segments onto a Wahoo Element Bolt to use while Zwifting? I am new to Strava and the Element Bolt arrived yesterday. Maybe you already have a informative post on this subject? Thanks!

Is there a way to find which courses each segment is on? eg I want to attempt epic KOM, but which route do I need to choose to find it?

I’m seeing a lot of “Zwift Insider Verified” segments that aren’t on the list above. Since anyone can name a segment whatever they like, I just want to make sure the list above is complete before I hide the “fake” ones.

Great work Eric! this has helped me clean up my segments. 1 question though for the epic KOM there are 2 segments?
Epic KOM Forward (Zwift Insider verified) 
Epic KOM (Zwift Insider verified) 
is the 2nd one a fake?

Strava should let you make those short segments in France and Paris. They’ve disabled the possibility to make such short segments due to GPS accuracy issues, but we don’t really have any GPS accuracy issue in Zwift…

There’s four Rebel routes missing in the list above.
The link for the Eastern Eight page doesn’t work (but the Strava segment link does). Looks like https://zwiftinsider.com/eastern-eight/ doesn’t exist.

Hey Eric,

Is there a way to suggest new segment ideas?
I personally believe that on M. Ventoux, a segment from Chalet Reynard to the top makes sense. I have a private segment for it, but I cannot track/compare with my friends.

Hi, i have a question. Why there is no segment 19 to 18, 18 to 17 and 17 to 16? I mean AdZ, of course.

Greetings

Those segments are too short, according to Strava.

Can any of the France routes be done in reverse?

The watopia mountain forward segment seems to be off for some reason. I have done the ride numerous times in last week but it does not show as a segment even if i star it from link above
