Zwift Route Maps: New York

Zwift includes a wide variety of routes in several worlds, and this gallery provides a collection of maps for the different routes in the New York world.

The following table and gallery provide more details on each route. For each map listed in the table below, we include the lead-in distance and elevation gain, if we know it (we’re in the process of riding all of these routes, so check back for updates). The lead-in is the ride to the beginning of the circuit, so you're not surprised when it takes a bit longer than you thought it would to cover the expected distance.

Once you complete a route, you will get an Achievement Badge for the route and earn Experience Points (XP), in addition to the XP you earn for each mile of the route.

New York World Hack

If you want to ride New York whenever you like, there is a hack that is described in the main article in this series. For New York, use world code 4:

<WORLD>4</WORLD>

Astoria Line 8

The 6 Train

Length (miles): 4.0
Elevation Gain (feet): 223
XP (Experience Points) Earned: 130

The 6 Train is short and relatively flat, with a couple short climbs all at ground level within Central Park. After a .4 mile mostly downhill lead-in, you'll be treated to a mostly flat ride with one short 10% grade climb and a couple of other more gentle, short climbs. This is a fun one if you want to complete the route but only have 20-30 minutes to ride.

The Highline

Length (miles): 6.5
Elevation Gain (feet): 583
XP (Experience Points) Earned: 210

The Highline might surprise you a bit - the lead-in to the circuit is pretty brutal, as it will take you up the New York KOM - the end of which is the start and end of the Highline route. So, be ready to do the New York KOM twice and an actual total distance of 9.7 miles with 1008 feet of elevation gain!
