Next came May’s release of the Giro d’Italia Bologna TT course, an exact replica of the prologue ridden at this year’s Giro. Released on May 11th so Zwifters could ride it the same day as the pros, it’s a smaller course which is only used for events (not free riding). You can learn more about the route here, and get tips for getting your best time on this short but challenging TT course.

August 1st saw the release of Titan’s Grove, the “National Forest” add-on to Fuego Flats. Titans Grove is a rolling course connecting to the ends of Fuego Flats, and it came with several new routes:

Start/finish

Lastly, the Yorkshire UCI route was released in early September. This replica of the finishing Harrogate circuit of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships lets us ride what the pros rode, without getting wet! Here are the five routes available in Yorkshire:

Also worth noting: we’ve been having some fun creating “Rebel Routes”–routes not available from within Zwift, meaning you have to manually navigate. Here’s the current list of routes we’ve created. Try them out if you’re looking for a new sort of challenge!
