EVENT DESCRIPTION
Tour de Zwift is the biggest tour of the year, giving athletes everywhere the opportunity to explore the worlds of Zwift together. Ride each stage once, or ride multiple routes in each! Keep in mind these are not races, but opportunities for you to discover some of Zwift’s most must-see places. Let’s go exploring! For more information, visit www.zwift.com/tdzOpens a new window.

Late Join will be enabled for all Tour de Zwift events. This feature allows riders to join an event up to 30 minutes after the scheduled start time. So, if you're running late, just log on as normal, and Zwift will offer you the option to join the ride. Heads up, the event results will be disabled for these rides.

Double Draft will also be enabled—meaning the drafting effect riders receive will increase by 50% during the Tour.

ABOUT RIDE STAGE CATEGORIES
Each stage offers three different routes to explore. Each category represents the stage’s themes. Choose your own adventure—ride one or ride them all!

Category A will be the longest ride, requiring the most amount of time. Category C requires the least amount of time to complete. Category B lies somewhere in between Category A and C in terms of duration. All genders can join categories A, B and C, while the D category is for women only and follows the same route as Category B.
