Zwift Erupts with New “Volcanic Circuit Route”

IMG_0417

Zwift’s training platform recently erupted in all manner of volcanic ash and lava since three new route options were added to it’s virtual Watopia island.

Zwift users can now challenge themselves by racing around a mix of three new routes aptly called the Volcano, Volcano CCW, and Volcano Flat.

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) – making the course flat and short and perfect for criterium inspired racing.

Apparently, when things get this hot, helmets are optional. 😉
