Tour de Zwift 2020 Cycling FAQ

Tour de Zwift is a multi-stage event where you can ride or run (or both!) the many worlds in the game. Experience both the ultra-realism and supernatural in the span of a few weeks.

When does Tour de Zwift start and finish?
Stage 1 starts on Jan 12th 2020. The final stage finishes on Feb 8th.

What if I miss a stage?
Makeup stages will be available from Feb 9th to Feb 16th, after Stage 7 completes.
During that one week, we’ll host events to cover all 7 stages.
Event slots are limited, so make sure to get your rides in!

What do I get for completing all stages?
We won’t spoil the surprise, but it’s nice and shiny. Finish the tour and see for yourself!

Can I mix up group rides and races during the Tour?
Yes. You decide how to ride. As long as you cross the finish line, you’ll receive credit.

I’d like to run and ride all of Tour de Zwift.
We are impressed by your levels of heroism! You can both ride AND run the Tour. You’ll receive TWO unlocks for your achievements.

Are there Women’s only group rides?
Absolutely. All Category C group rides will be for women only.

What’s the difference between group ride and a race?
Group rides are like IRL fondos, with everyone going their chosen distance and riding with friends. Everyone can ride at their own pace. Races are more competitive–first over the line wins. Typically the courses are shorter to balance what will normally be a higher intensity effort.

If the screenshots were taken with the 4k Ultra profile, seems I have to get a better GPU soon :thinking:

I hit the generic sign up. Is that all I need to do? It wouldn’t let me pick a specific event for each stage.


We know stage dates and routes–what we don’t yet know are events times or the distances for the different categories.

Thanks for the heads up. Our web team is already working on fixing this.


The sign up page doesn’t work at all using Safari or Chrome on iOS.

It has the list but is missing a subtitle and when you select dates or times nothing comes up. Here are examples:
