What is the Tour de Zwift?
Of all the tours on Zwift, this is the one with the most to explore! Ride or run through eight fun-filled stages, each with three different routes. Choose your own adventure and complete each stage however you want. These are not races, they’re opportunities for you to discover some of Zwift’s must-see places.
How are the Tour de Zwift’s stages structured?
New this year and based on data-driven upgrades, longer rides will take place on the weekends and shorter routes will take place Monday - Thursday.
What’s the difference among the RIDE categories?
Each stage offers three different routes to explore. Each category represents the stage’s theme. Choose your own adventure—ride one or ride them all!
Category A will be the longest ride.
Category C will be the shortest ride.
Category B lies somewhere in between Category A and C in terms of duration.
All genders can join categories A, B, and C, but the D category is for women only and follows the same route as Category B.
The categories are:
- Category A: Longer Ride
- Category B: Standard Ride
- Category C: Shorter Ride
- Category D: Standard Ride (Women Only)
What’s the difference among the RUN categories?
Each stage offers two different routes to explore. Both categories represent the stage’s theme. Choose your own adventure—run one or run them both!
Category A will be the longest run available.
Category B will be the shortest.
The categories are:
- Category A: Longer Run
- Category B: Shorter Run

Where can I find my unlocks?
In your Garage! If you don’t see it, just log out and log back in.
I completed both the Tour de Zwift Ride and Run but only unlocked 7 items in my garage.
We’ve got a top explorer in the house! When you unlock your sunglasses, you will notice they appear in both your ride and run Garages. This is a special unlock: one piece of kit for both ride and run.
Why isn’t my stage showing as complete after my ride/run?
Great job on completing a stage! If you don’t see your stage completion right away in the Zwift Companion app, close and reopen the app. If you still don’t see your progress, let us know here.
Is this a race?
No. You decide how your journey unfolds. As long as you finish the stage you’ll receive credit.
I’d like to run and ride all of the Tour de Zwift.
Your sense of adventure is impressive! Good news for you—you can, in fact, do both! In doing so, you’ll receive even more unlocks for your achievements.
Are there Women Only group rides?
Absolutely. All Category D group rides are women only.
