Zwift has just been updated with a new a series of Watopian roads based around an active volcanic island. The expansion consists of a loop (4.1km, 2.6 miles) around and through the volcano, with connecting roads to the south (a dirt road at the Italian Village) and east (a new ocean tunnel which can be found just before the final tunnel on your way to the start/finish banner).
As anticipated, the new volcano circuit course is flat and short, making it perfect for criterium-style races.
New Route Details
Three new route options have been added in-game which utilize the new roads. Here are their descriptions:
- Volcano Circuit: immediate u-turn from start, right to new ocean tunnel, left to go around volcano circuit clockwise indefinitely. Route Details >
- Volcano Circuit CCW: immediate u-turn from start, right to new ocean tunnel, right to go around volcano counter-clockwise indefinitely. Route Details >
- Volcano Flat: similar to current Flat Route except you hang a left at the Italian Village and ride around the northern leg of the volcano circuit clockwise then back out through the ocean tunnel and onto the main road and the start/finish banner. Route Details >
Here’s a gallery of shots taken on the new routes. (Please excuse the low resolutions, as these were taken on an iPhone since the expansion was released on iOS before it came to Mac/PC.)
