Zwift has expanded its Makuri Islands with Urukazi, a new route that follows the November 2021 Neokyo expansion with over 40 miles of road, taking Zwifters from cityscapes to the country and now to the coast.
“Urukazi (woo-roo-kah-zi) is the combination of two Okinawan words – “uru” means “shore,” and “kazi” means “breeze.” The combination of the two words is meant to evoke the serene, untouched character of the Southern Japanese archipelago. On the roads of Urukazi, riders will find a Zwifty interpretation of those islands’ scenery as you ride pavement, gravel, and a new type of surface not yet found anywhere else on our platform,” explains Zwift.
The Urukazi expansion introduces eight new routes, ranging in distance from 2.5 miles to 24.9 miles, along with elevation gain figures to almost 1000 feet.
Here are the new routes, all of which are now live in-game:
Additionally, Zwift says stages 5 and 6 of the Tour of the Makuri Islands will take on these new roads.
