Zwift Courses and Routes

Currently, there are 3 courses on Zwift, each with its own routes. Courses rotate each month based on a schedule. You can log into the game to see the current course schedule (in the lower-right of the Drop In screen), or check out Announcements to see what's coming up.

Each course has a number of routes you can choose from. You choose your route from the dropdown menu on the Drop In screen, or you can manually pick your route by choosing a direction when an intersection comes up.

If you decide to manually navigate, you can either use the Mobile Link app buttons or the arrow keys on your keyboard.



TIP: If you're having trouble picturing the intersections for these routes, Zwifter Eric Schlange has done an excellent job mapping this out visually. You can check out his work on*
