The newest map on Zwift, Scotland, is here and ready for the 2023 UCI Cycling Esports World Championships. The Scotland was inspired by rural Scottish beauty and the city of Glasgow and was built with races in mind and is designed for a variety of racing types
The Scotland map is an event-only map but will be a host to many exciting events, including:
Ride Scotland - Group rides and led rides on each of the routes in Scotland
Ride Scotland Fondo - Longer group rides led by Community Event Leaders
Run Scotland - Group runs on each of the Scotland routes
ZRacing Monthly Series
Zwift TT Club events
Zwift Insider’s Tiny Races on the Scotland routes!
We are aware of a bug that results in avatars taking improper turns in events when late join is turned on. In order to ensure the best experience for those taking part in Ride Scotland events, we have adjusted the remaining events to no longer offer late join. If you have already signed up for an upcoming event, no action is required on your part.
You can check out the scheduled events taking place on Scotland here.
In addition to being the used for the 2023 UCI Cycling Esports World Championships, there will also be new routes with new badge unlocks (cycling only), all with different benefits:
It’d be good if the page honoured a preference for reduced motion/fewer animations (via prefers-reduced-motion for example)
That image at the top is quite distracting.
The various buttons on the page don’t really seem to do anything.
e.g. “Join Events” just opens the same page in a new tab (Chrome latest), same with “Learn the routes” and “How to watch”.
In the “Races” and “Group events” sections, none of the “Schedule your event” links are active, and not all pf the cards gain the <span class="accessibility-info">Opens a new window</span> element. Even when that is present, the text can’t be read as it’s cut off by the edge of the card:
I agree, felt the webpages were wanting to give me more information but didn’t.
Probably know enough to realise the events have not been scheduled yet but the current information, not fully operational, suggesting more information is available is confusing.
Im wondering, tgat after i do rhe stage 8 event on Scotland map, do you stay there after crossing the line, or do zwift transport you back to Watopia. Would be nice to do a continue ride around after finishing .
