Zwift Courses and Routes

Currently, there are 4 courses on Zwift, each with its own routes. Courses rotate based on a monthly 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 the Community Page to see what's coming up. Course changeovers happen at UTC-8.

Each course has a number of routes you can choose from. You choose your route by clicking the Change button at 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 in-game, you can either use the Companion app buttons or the arrow keys on your keyboard.




 TIP: If you're having trouble picturing the intersections for these routes, here are some maps of the courses:

Zwifter Eric Schlange has also done an excellent job mapping this out visually. You can check out his work on*
