Route Description

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

Begin just before the Fuego Flats start pen and hit the flat, fast desert roads to start. This is as flat as your journey will get! You’ll hang a right into Titans Grove (forward direction) after leaving Saddle Springs, ride through Titans Grove, then turn left to head toward downtown Watopia.

At the intersection near downtown, turn left to head up the original Watopia KOM, then descend down and turn left onto the gravel at the Italian Villas toward the volcano.

At the volcano, you’ll take the first right for a CCW circuit around (and through) our favorite magmatic mountain. But before you complete a full circuit you will turn left to head up the Volcano KOM–the largest climb on the route.

Once you’ve finished that climb, zip down the volcano and ride to downtown Watopia, through the main start/finish banner and back out toward Fuego Flats. But before you hit our original starting point you’ll hang a right into Titans Grove, covering that road in the reverse direction.

After Titans Grove turn right to get onto Ocean Boulevard, through the fishing village, and onto the original KOM in the reverse direction. After descending from the KOM turn right onto Ocean Boulevard, then a quick left toward Fuego Flats to finish near the same place you began.

One of five routes rolled out with Zwift’s Titans Grove expansion, “Dust In the Wind” covers Titans Grove twice, as well as Fuego Flats, part of Ocean Boulevard, and a Mayan Jungle out and back. Along the way you’ll encounter a fair amount of virtual dirt/gravel road, so you might consider using a gravel bike so you can move to the front of the pack and make everyone else eat your dust!

Start & Finish

Since this route does not begin near a start/finish banner and your actual spawn location will vary a bit, we chose the first banner you ride through as the start point for our Strava segment.

This banner is the Titans Grove reverse KOM banner, which means you have a 5km lead in with a bit of climbing before the official Strava segment begins.

The route ends (and you will receive an achievement badge) the first time you ride through the desert start/finish arch.

Begin by turning left off of Fuego Flats into Titans Grove reverse. You’ll ride through Titans Grove (north to south), and our Strava segment begins at the top of the Titans Grove KOM.

Descend from the KOM, finish your ride through the redwoods, then turn right and descend down to Ocean Boulevard. Take Ocean Boulevard until you hang a left at the windmills to head to the Mayan Jungle.

Ride the Jungle loop (clockwise), then climb out and return the way you came. Turn right when you hit Ocean Boulevard at the windmills, riding toward downtown Watopia. But you’ll hang a right toward Fuego Flats before you reach downtown.

After crossing the bridge you’ll turn right into Titans Grove to ride it once again in the same direction as before. But at the end, you will turn left and head into Saddle Springs then into the desert to finish your ride at the rock arch finish.

Watopia’s “Figure 8” route covers the entire hilly and flat routes in both directions. If you’re looking for a ride around an hour long that includes some short climbs and a nice mix of flats and rollers, this is a solid choice. This route is popular with racers since its nice mix of punchy climbs, flats, and rollers keep the race interesting and allow for strategic attacks from a variety of riders.

Route Description

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

Begin in downtown Watopia and head out Ocean Boulevard for a nice flat warmup before the first climb. Enjoy the ocean tunnel, wave to the whale, then head up to dry land for a dusty trip through the fishing village and a short, snaking climb up to Watopia’s main “Hilly Route”.

You’re now on the Hilly Route in the reverse direction. You’ll cross the 360 Bridge then pass Hank’s Gas Station, where the reverse KOM begins. Give that first pitch a good hard kick, then try to hold some speed for the rest of the climb, which isn’t nearly as steep.

Drop down from the KOM banner, ride through downtown Watopia again, then it’s over the Esses and a quick descent onto the timed reverse sprint over the JWB (Julynn Washington Bridge).

Catch your breath after the sprint as you hit the cobbles of the Italian Villas, then turn right and head down the snaky descent to the fishing village once more. You’re on Ocean Boulevard, but in the reverse direction. As you climb out of the ocean tube, take a deep breath and get ready: the forward KOM is just up the road!

The forward KOM is shorter and steeper than the reverse. Go as hard as you’d like, keep that power up over the flat top, then enjoy your descent. You earned it!

Descending the reverse KOM, 24km in

Over some rollers and past the noisy waterfall you’ll ride through the Italian Villas once more, hit the forward sprint section, cross the JWB, then hit the short, straight kicker into the Esses.

Keep your speed up through the Esses by modulating your power just right, then it’s one final kick to the finish in downtown Watopia. You did it!

When it was released in March 2018, the “Four Horsemen” covered all of Watopia’s timed climbs: the original Hilly KOM, Volcano KOM, Epic KOM, and Alpe du Zwift. Along the way it also covered (nearly) every bit of Watopian road. The Fuego Flats and Titans Grove extensions were released after this route launched, so Four Horsemen is no longer a nearly complete tour of Watopia.

Want to hit both sides of every KOM in one ride? Check out our KOMonster Rebel Route!

This is no leisure tour: be ready to work as you climb over 2000 meters in just under 90 kilometers! And be warned: hitting the Alpe after working your way over the previous climbs proves to be both a mental and physical challenge. Prepare yourself!

Your most aero setup will give you the fastest overall time on this route, since the climbs are short and punchy. That said, if your race has drafting enabled and you struggle on short, punchy climbs, you might consider a lighter (but still aero) wheelset and/or frame. You’ll have to work a bit harder on the flats and descents to stay with the pack, but will gain some advantage on the climbs.

Beginning in downtown Watopia, we quickly head up the forward KOM for a punchy effort. Can you grab the polka-dot leader’s jersey? It’s not easy!

Catch your breath as you descend from the KOM. You’ll pass Scotty’s Hillside Condo on the right, then turn a sharp right and hit the punchy little kicker where you can drop your opponents in a race! Then it’s down through the statues and past Hank’s Gas Station on your left, before crossing the 360 bridge and making your way over the rollers into the Italian Villas.

The sprint section begins just after the Villas – see if you can grab green! Then cross the JWB and hit the ramp into The Esses… these are the final minutes of your lap. You’ll pass through a short tunnel and descend back to downtown Watopia for a fast finish. In a race, this sprint is all about timing – and practice makes perfect.

The jungle loop itself is almost 8km in length. In the forward direction, you roll through the lap banner at the loop’s lowest elevation, then ride a gradual climb (~3%) to cross the dizzying heights of the rope bridge. Soon enough you are zipping downhill to the bottom of the valley for another lap.

The entire circuit is dirt, and while this was only a visual change when the Jungle was first released, Zwift modified the rolling resistance of dirt in October 2019. Now, different bike wheels perform differently in the Jungle, making your wheel choice especially strategic when racing!

Begin your lead-in by turning left into Titans Grove (reverse direction) and enjoy your roller-coaster ride through the sequoia forest. Hit the reverse KOM section hard if you’d like, but keep in mind you’ll be hitting it again at the end of the ride… plus the much longer and steeper Epic KOM and radio tower climbs are coming up soon!

At the end of Titans Grove hang a right onto the Fuego Flats road, descending across the bridge and turning left onto the road to the Epic KOM. Climb up through this mountain pass, and when you hit the banner at the top remember: you’re not done yet! This route takes you up even higher as you turn left to take Watopia’s steepest climb: the radio tower road.

Once you reach the tower it’s time for a long descent. Enjoy the downhill–you’ve earned it! When you reach the windmills at the Ocean Boulevard intersection turn right, then another right after climbing out of the ocean tunnel to get back onto the road to Titans Grove. Keep riding all the way to the top of the Titans Grove reverse KOM–the route ends at the KOM line.

The first half of this route is quite flat, while the second half contains its two climbs.

Our Volcano KOM climb begins almost exactly at the 20km mark. Ride up the volcano, descend, then take the flat land bridge road back to the Italian Villas.

Our second climb is next, Hilly KOM Reverse. Once you’ve completed this climb and descended down to sea level you’ll hang a right onto Ocean Boulevard then a quick left toward the finish line at Fuego Flats.

At the end of Titans Grove hang a right onto the Fuego Flats road, descending across the bridge and turning left onto the road to the Epic KOM. Climb up through this mountain pass, but this is only a warmup for the larger Alpe climb to come.

After descending from the Epic KOM, turn left toward the Mayan Jungle, get on the Jungle Circuit in the reverse direction by turning left at the dirt fork, then take another left to head up the Alpe. From there it’s just one long climb to the Alpe banner, which is where the route ends.

Zwift created this route using GPS data to perfectly match the incline and distance of the storied climb with its 21 hairpin turns. The climb to Alp d’Huez actually has two different finish points: the “tourist version” and the Tour de France version. Alpe du Zwift matches the tourist version, which is ~2km shorter with 40 meters less climbing than the TdF. In all, Alpe du Zwift is 12.24km (7.6 miles) long, with a total elevation gain of over 1000 meters (3400′)! Read more >

If you choose this route for a freeride you’ll begin just a few hundred yards before the jungle start pens. Events on Road to Sky now begin in the jungle start pens.

So whatever type of ride you’re doing, you’ll drop into the jungle, wave to the sloth and enjoy a little gravel riding before you hang a right and head up the Alpe.

The route ends at the KOM banner atop Alpe du Zwift.

This loop begins just before the Fuego Flats start pens, taking you out to the desert for a flat and fast first half of the route. Leaving the town of Saddle Springs around 6 miles into your ride, the road ramps up a bit then begins to descend through the sequoia grove. The landscape is changing!

Hanging a right on your descent through the trees puts you on the road through Titans Grove, and this section has a completely different feel from the desert. With tight twists and constantly changing gradients it can feel like a rollercoaster at high speeds – so take a moment to slow down and enjoy the scenery. (Unless you’re in a race – then you’d better hang on tight!)

The reverse version of this route is functional. Simply flip a u-turn to take it all in the opposite direction.

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

This is the flattest route in all of Zwift as the time of its release, with only 16m (52′) of elevation gain from start line to finish. There are some ~1% false flats, but they are barely noticeable as you fly through the picturesque desert.

There are lots of landmarks in Fuego Flats to help you keep your bearings. First you pass the cliff dwellings near the first turnaround loop, then you hit the forward 500m sprint segment. Next you’ll ride through the old town of Desert Flats (watch for the steam engine to come roaring through) then through a gap in the rocks to a hidden oasis complete with a waterfall and dinosaur fossils.

Continue on and you’ll ride into Saddle Springs, the 1950’s-inspired resort town where you’ll make your turnaround before heading back home. Just after the turnaround you’ll cross the start line of the 7km “Fuego Flats Reverse” segment which ends at the same rock arch where the forward sprint ends.

You’ll ride through this arch, around the first turnaround loop (the one with ruins of cliff dwellings) then finish the route with a second effort on the 500m sprint segment.

Three Sisters

The “Three Sisters” route covers Watopia’s three oldest climbs (Hilly KOM, Epic KOM, and Volcano KOM) in a forward direction. While not as punishing as The Pretzel and some of Watopia’s toughest routes, it’ll still put you in the hurt locker with almost 3000′ of climbing!

Begin at the standard downtown Watopia start point, and head directly up the Hilly KOM forward. This short climb was the first timed KOM segment on Watopia, but it’s far from the toughest!

Catch a breather descending from the Hilly KOM banner, then hang a left onto Ocean Boulevard and a right at Sequoia Circle to make your way onto the longest climb of the route: the Epic KOM forward. This was the longest climb in all of Zwift when it was released, but it is now dwarfed by Alpe du Zwift. Don’t underestimate the Epic KOM, though: it’s got plenty of suffering in store, and the super steep “bonus climb” up to the radio tower just adds insult to injury!

Tick Tock

“Tick Tock” is a clockwise loop covering Fuego Flats and portions of the Ocean Boulevard tube. Released as part of Zwift’s Fuego Flats desert expansion, this route is flatter than Watopia Flat or Volcano Flat, with the only pitchy bits being in and out of Fuego Flats, and in and out of the ocean tunnel.

Start & Finish

When freeriding you will spawn just before the desert start pens, giving us a lead-in of approximately 2.5km before the sprint finish line. For our Strava segment we started and ended at the sprint finish line since this is a stable point (unlike spawn points, which have some randomness to them).

We will create another segment beginning at the start pens to cover events on this route, once events begin running here.

Route Description

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

This is the second-flattest route in all of Zwift as the time of its release, with 2.6 meters of climbing per kilometer of road. (Tempus Fugit, the flattest, has .92m/km.)

Beginning in Fuego Flats, your trip will be pan-flat until you exit Saddle Springs and descend through the Redwood Forest. This descent maxes out at 3% and brings you to the entrance of the ocean tube which is a short downhill ramp. You then proceed through the flat tube, hit the ramp up and out, then hang a right toward Fuego Flats. You’ve got just a bit of gradual climb toward the start line, but nothing more than most cyclists would call a “rise.”

There are lots of landmarks on this route to make this visually interesting and help you keep your bearings. First you pass the cliff dwellings near the first turnaround loop, then you hit the forward 500m sprint segment. Next you’ll ride through the old town of Desert Flats (watch for the steam engine to come roaring through) then through a gap in the rocks to a hidden oasis complete with a waterfall and dinosaur fossils.

Continue on and you’ll ride into Saddle Springs, the 1950’s-inspired resort town. This is where the Tempus Fugit route turns around, but for Tick Tock we continue through town and down into the Redwood Forest–the longest descent on the route, but it’s over before you know it!

Cross the bridge to Ocean Boulevard, then descend into the ocean tunnel. When you exit the tunnel you’ll soon turn a right to cross another bridge toward the island containing Fuego Flats. Hit that 500m sprint segment once more, and the stone arch is your finish line.

The route begins at the Volcano banner, then takes you to where the Road to Sky route begins. Therefore, this route is basically Road to Sky with ~7 miles and a few hundred feet of climbing added.

Route Description

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

Events on this route begin at the downtown Watopia start pier, while free-ride efforts begin at the Volcano Circuit banner. After passing through the Volcano banner you head directly across the land bridge, up the twisty dirt climb to the Italian Villas, then turn right onto Ocean Boulevard to ride through the fishing village and head up the short climb that marks the beginning of the Epic KOM reverse.

But instead of completing the Epic KOM reverse, we hang a right toward the Jungle, climbing a bit then descending to the dirt road of the Jungle Loop. Then it’s a right turn to take us to the bottom of Zwift’s longest climb: Alpe du Zwift. Hope you brought your climbing legs (and climbing bike)!

Über Pretzel

First came The Pretzel at 72km long and 1,333m of elevation. Then the Mega Pretzel arrived, 107km long with 1,642m of elevation. Now there’s a new king of the hill: “The Über Pretzel”.

Released as part of Zwift’s Fuego Flats desert expansion, this route covered every bit of tarmac available in Watopia at the time of its release – sometimes in both directions. It is most similar to the Mega Pretzel, but adds the Fuego Flats desert roads, the Radio Tower climb, and an Alpe du Zwift finish. Wow!

Course Profile

Beginning in downtown Watopia, you head straight for the Epic KOM. Once you cross the banner you’ll hang a left for the cursed Radio Tower climb, then it’s a quick descent to a left turn onto the jungle route.

Complete one Jungle Circuit lap and head over to the Volcano for a trip to the top. Then it’s down the Volcano, over the Esses, and zig-zagging our way to Fuego Flats in a reverse direction.

We drop down from Fuego Flats onto Ocean Boulevard, then hit the Hilly KOM reverse and back onto Fuego Flats in a forward direction. Once we hit Ocean Boulevard again we head back to Watopia’s city center, then make our way out to the final section of this route: Alpe du Zwift. Enjoy!

Level Locked

You must be level 12 or above to access The Über Pretzel in a free ride. Alternatively, you can join a group ride or Meetup held on this route–but Über Pretzel group rides are exceedingly rare.

Start Points

When freeriding you will spawn just before the downtown start/finish line. For our Strava segment we started at the downtown start/finish since this is a stable point (unlike spawn points, which have some randomness to them).

We will create another segment beginning at the start pens to cover events on this route, once events begin running here.

We begin with a 4.6km (2.9 mile) lead-in from the starting pens (Strava segment here).

Once you ride through the Volcano Circuit start/finish banner the actual route begins, taking you around 3/4 of the standard Volcano Circuit CCW route. But instead of completing the circuit you’ll hang a left onto the Volcano KOM, ride up to the top, then descend back to sea level. Only then is it time to complete your Volcano Circuit CCW lap!

When you ride through the start/finish banner you’ve completed one lap of “Whole Lotta Lava”. Most events on this route are 2-4 laps in length.

The Magnificent 8

“The Magnificent 8” route was rolled out with Zwift’s October 29th update, and is used as the route for the Halloween dinosaur costume scavenger hunt. Whether this route will hang around and be available for events or free-riding in the future remains to be seen.

Course Profile

The route begins in downtown Watopia, riding through the start/finish banner in the reverse direction. We ride around the volcano, across the land bridge, by the Italian Villas then over the reverse Hilly KOM. (This is the only significant climb of the entire route).

Next, we hang a right onto Ocean Boulevard, then a left to Fuego Flats for a spin through the desert.

This brings us all the way around to a right turn onto the Ocean Boulevard/Epic KOM spur, where we make our way back to downtown Watopia for the finish.

This is actually an excellent flat route–hopefully it will be available for future use!

Watopia’s “Seaside Sprint” began as a Rebel Route in August 2019. Zwift made it an official (albeit event-only) route in its February 2020 update. At only 6.3km (3.9 miles) this is the shortest Watopia loop which includes a sprint segment, making it perfect for races that include sprint points or for group rides with interval efforts like Sprintapalooza. As a route, this is the smallest loop on Watopia apart from Volcano Circuit and Volcano Circuit CCW.

After passing under the banner you will ride over the cobbles of the Italian Villas, hang a right onto the twisty gravel road, then cross the land bridge to our magmatic friend, the Volcano.

Turn right at the fork after the land bridge, climbing up the short pitch into the volcano, and you will find yourself going through the Volcano Circuit banner. The lap counter just after the banner counts down how many laps you’ve got left.

Ride out of the volcano, turn right onto the glass bridge, then another right into the Esses. The Esses roller coaster will spit you out onto the short reverse sprint over the JWB.

That’s one lap… how many more have you got left?

Route Description

If you know your Watopia routes, the easiest way to understand this route is as two laps of Volcano Flat followed by a lap of Volcano Climb ending at the volcano KOM banner. This means the first 36km (22.4 miles) of the route is quite flat, but the final volcano climb wraps it up in painful fashion. In fact, nearly half the route’s vertical gain comes in the final 4km!

Unlike the other run routes, this one begins with you running southward through the start/finish. You’ll find yourself on mixed-use roads quickly, progressing over the 360 bridge and onto the docks and dirt roads of the fishing village. Continue on through the underwater tunnels of Ocean Blvd, then you can finally hop onto the dedicated running path which takes you along the beachfront, over the water, and eventually into Run Valley to finish off your lap.
