New format let's Zwifters take part how they want, when they want

Zwift, the global online fitness platform, has today launched the Tour of Makuri Islands. This new tour is held in Zwift’s newest world, Makuri Islands, and offers Zwifters the opportunity to explore these roads while making it easier than ever to complete stages. The clocks might have changed this weekend, but you can still get your cycling fix this winter with Zwift. The Tour of Makuri Islands lets you complete the series how you want, when you want.

Every type of Zwifter can find the best way to tick off these stages. For the traditionalist, take part in the organised Tour of Makuri Islands group events on the event calendar. For the socialite, check off a stage with your friends in a Club event or MeetUp. For the most competitive, complete a race on the scheduled course and for those training, complete a stage while doing a workout. It really is the most convenient way to progress through a tour while staying on track for your fitness goals.

Tour of Makuri Islands is a 6 stage tour, covering all corners of Makuri from Yumezi, a fantastical countryside destination with lush green fields, ginkgo forests and cherry blossom trees to Neokyo, filled with towering buildings, eye-popping neon billboards and glistening fast roads. The first four stages will be on Neokyo and Yumezi with Stage 5 & 6 will be held on the unreleased Urukazi map. Choose between long or short rides on each stage, to fit into your schedule.   

In the most flexible tour, schedule your rides on your own time or sign up for a group event. There will be a week to catch up on any stages missed for group rides starting on November 25. Upon completing all 6 stages, all Zwifters will unlock the Tour of Makuri Islands kit.

The Tour of Makuri Islands takes place between 4th November and 30th November. More information, including details of how to take part in each stage can be found here.
