Zwift Release 1.51 & Upcoming Events

With us beginning a release/patch cadence of every two weeks, here is what you can expect in the upcoming release and what events are on the horizon. The release is expected to go live Wednesday, October 25th at approximately 15:00 UTC. This release will be a rolling release, meaning we will scale up the percentage of people with the release over a few days to minimize bugs or crashes. Below you will find the updates included in this release.




- 19 kilometers of new roads in Watopia will give Zwifters eight new routes to explore. The new roads bring cyclists from Fuego Flats to the Mayan Jungle, bypassing the Epic KOM. Along the Southern Coast, cyclists will find new environments and settlements that have been previously inaccessible via bike. More information here

- The Get Started Tutorial is now available to all Zwifters! On the Zwift homescreen, click on your profile image in the top-right to open the profile menu. Then click on the “Tutorial” link.
