Badge Not Awarded - Quatch Quest

I selected Quatch Quest from the ride menu, and started riding. I never made any attempt to deviate from the route – just kept going until I reached the top of the Alpe. The random spin wheel appeared like it usually does, but no “route completed” notification. I continued around the loop and back down the Alpe, then ended the ride. Strava found the completed route…

… but Zwift did not.

This issue is not unique. See my posts on Astoria Line 8 and The Knickerbocker.

It seems to be a lottery as to one receives an achievement badge or not.

Same here. Zwift support is letting know some bagdes are broken and will be fixed in naxt update. There is no whay they can award any badges, so you have to ride the route again…and Quatch Quest isn’t the easiest one. Ride on :slight_smile:

Same here. Rode it yesterday, but no badge or xp. Thankfully this route is one of the easier…

Just did the Quatch Quest route again and received the batch at the top of AdZ. Without any U-turns at the start. So working like it should.Ride-on!

Good to know!

Has anyone else had success with this one. Failing to get the route badge was Zwift’s lump of coal in my X-mas stocking. I haven’t tried the Alpe since then.

Hey Tim,
To be 100% sure to complete this badge make u turn at start, finish kom and again u turn like on pic below.

the start finish is a bit further than that white line in the pic above.

Strava says I did it on Dec 25, 2019…no route badge was given

highline in new york also not working

Can any Zwifters verify the start for Quatch Quest is shown correctly on the latest Watopia map (v2.12 at )? It shows a spawn point east of the start pens and indicates to ride toward Titans Grove. Some responses to this thread indicate that one should travel west from the spawn point to a turn-around spot (? the bridge?..? the rock arch? ).



You need to uturn ride past the rock arch. the rock arch is the Start and finish banner for events so you need to pass that the start the route.


The bridge is just a graphical element

Thanks, that must mean that the latest Watopia map is in error about the route.

No the map show where the spawn point is and how Zwift wil route you. The thing is for the badge to activate you need to pass a “START” point first.

Zwift should move the Spawn point for this route. or not require you to pass a start banner.

I’ve just done the Quatsch Quest and have been rewarded with a badge. No U-turn, just entering after selecting the route and on top of AdZ i got my badge. I think it’s solved now.


Zwift has moved the spawn point east of the starting pens with latest update.
Didn’t do Quatch Quest, so I’m not sure, but I did Dust in the Wind, there was exactly the same issue.
