Getting re-routed off course on routes during group rides and meet-ups

The joining Pace Partner issue will be fixed in 1.42.

True, i was 4 minutes behind the group. However on a 3R endurance ride today several of us where sent in a different direction off route… didnt really matter to me (could still see the leader board and chat so i felt i was still with the ride) but thought you should know

We’ve had a few late joiners re-routed during Pride rides in the last few days.

Same issue for the past 2 weeks with not being anywhere near the bot when joining a bot ride. I’m using ATV but my son has the same problem and he is on a PC.

BTW, when is 1.42 releasing for ATV?

Over the next two days

I was on a Cycle Nation ride and was routed off course twice! I couldn’t rejoin after the 2nd screw up. What’s with all these bugs? Fix them please.

I was on the Zwift Ride Series Coastal Cruise 45 minute ride this morning and my Avatar took a wrong turn from the group and was riding in the middle of a field. I logged out and back in and was placed back in the group and at the next intersection, went the wrong direction again. Rinse and repeat a third time, and the same effect. So I rode out the 45 minutes solo, actually on a continuous smaller loop. I could see the other riders coming the other way once, but was not able to U turn to join up (I’m guessing it would have made no difference). Is this related to the Not being Able to Join a Robo Bug that will be fixed this week, as I’ve had that problem twice as well

If this continues to happens to anyone on 1.42 please let me know and I’ll flag with the team.

It happened to me during my ride yesterday and today. It always seems to come in at the end of my training rides. Yesterday about 40 mins in and today about 50 mins in. Today’s ride was on TicToc.

Are you on 1.41 or 1.42?


It states Game Version 1.42.0 (113138). I also just checked and it says Zwift is up to date.

Just so I can follow up on this in case I see it myself in the coming time, what kind of details are you looking for specifically or need to know; ie, route, what group ride / robo partner, device.

Anything else to keep an eye out for?

Noticed it happen to someone again the other night, but holding reserve until 1.42 is out for everyone.

Still haven’t had it happen to myself specifically (I’ve only had to rejoin a ride once or twice though). But I still hate telling people to rejoin our group rides, only to see them veer off into the nether immediately after.

I did the SZR Early Birdies and SZR Sunrise Ride yesterday and got re-routed on both rides. On the first ride I took left leaving the start pen instead of right like the rest of the riders (Electric Loop). And on the second ride I went left to the Tidepool sprint instead of straight on (Country to Coastal). On both rides I got in the start pen just before the start of the ride, 10-20s before start.

Zwift ver 1.42.0 (113138) IOS 16.5.

Thanks Maria (and sorry) - I’ll let you and others know if we need any extra information.


This re-routing is also happening on workouts. When you pick a route the game is going off that route on its own. Today for example I was doing a custom workout and picked Triple Flat Loop but the system took me throughTitan’s Grove first and then began going through Triple Flat Loop as expected the second time through.

This same thing happened on Wednesday during my workout as well but the re-routing happened at the end of the workout I was doing.

I didn’t do any manual routing to correct so if needed you can always view the ride if need more details. Also be glad to help out any way I can if needing beta testing done.


Steering device paired or not?

Sterzo was connected.

Yep, still seems to be happening.

iPad user (no steering) on the AHDR bagel rolls on 6/17 just got turned off despite being with us from the start (possible last second late join; their distance was the same)

This time happened in downtown Neokyo on Wandering Flats

She rejoined; and it happened again…

Requested to said user to check and make sure their app is updated; will continue to watch for it.

In the time since the latest release I have been routed off course several times when following a robo pacer. Specifically, I have been within a couple of meters of volcano circuit bot, which I joined on initial ride start, after the major uphill, instead of turning left I am routed up the volcano climb. In Makuri I have been unrouted in the same manner. I join a specific pacer on a specific route and then I do not turn when the group turns. (I have ensured I have not pressed an arrow key nor have I inserted a manual steer.)
