Long Climbs

Good afternoon,

I think it would be great to see some very long climbs. Some climbs ranging from 45 min - 1.5 hours & some from 1.5-2 hours to summit. 

Thank you,


Not high on Zwift’s to do list since according to their data most people use the flatter routes. You could raise your weight so you would be climbing at a slower speed and that would make your climb time longer.

You can vote up the existing requests (here is a quick search for longer climbs): https://support.zwift.com/hc/en-us/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&query=Longer+Climbs&commit=Search


bigger climbs, or even one (with 1000+ height meters) would be great, or at least routs that are more hilly.

Must not be the most detailed route (like Jungle), the route itself is important. Don’t know who in Zwift put a lot of value on super detailed routs!?

Flatter routes are more popluar that’s clear, but when you ride the mountain route you can’t say that not much people riding this :slight_smile:

You can then also make mountain races (just climbing). Then there will be wattage more important than staying in the slipstream, like it is on flat or hilly.

And when the zwifters get more and more you will anyway need more space and bigger routes (i hope).

Thank you. Ride on.

I agree with having longer climbs. Something like 14-15 km. I see on the scenery that there is clearly a higher mountain in the background than the KOM, so I guess it shouldn’t be hard to accommodate this. Changing weight is not the right way of doing this. You want to know how you will do in real life on longer climbs given your exqct weight.
