Updated 5/7/2020 to improve the route information table and provide updated information on each route.
Zwift includes a wide variety of routes in several worlds, and this gallery provides a collection of maps for the different routes in the Richmond world.
Modeled after the real city of Richmond, Virginia, USA, which hosted the 2015 UCI Worlds, Richmond was the first Zwift world outside of Watopia. In February 2020, Richmond got an extensive facelift, including new names for the routes. Richmond includes 3 routes, all based on the 2015 UCI Worlds course.
The following table and gallery provide more details on each route. Many of the routes in Zwift include a lead-in. The lead-in is the ride to the beginning of the circuit, so don't be 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 bonus Experience Points (XP), in addition to the XP you earn for covering the distance of the route. Earn your route badge and the next level up by finishing each route!
