Route distances

(Caroline) #1

Just wondering, as a newbie to Zwift (loving it by the way!) - when a route says 15miles for example, you ride 15 miles then you have at least another 3+ before you get to the finish! If I’m riding a fixed distance I get a bit disheartened to have to push that extra to find the finish…donkeys and carrots spring to mind! Am I reading something wrong?

With some routes, you have to ride to the start of the route from the spawn point. Other routes don’t have this “lead-in” distance.

Are you referring to events or races? Sometimes there is a lead in which is not always shown in the total distance. This is a feature that has been requested by the community. In the meantime you can use site like to check total distances for events and through more riding and experience you will get used to it too :slight_smile:
