U turns on alpe d zwift


(Kev Clark BCC) #1

Hi Looking at doing Everesting by riding alpe d zwift 8 time so would need to ride up! Come back down then do ‘U’ turn and repeat 8 times.

 

Are ‘U’ turns allowed

Update: Yes, you are able to do a U turn, but in order to get the Prize Wheel at the top you have to go all the way down the Alpe and exit the level gate  then do a U-turn. Don’t want you to do all that climbing for nothing (except fantastic fitness)! 

From our U Turn FAQ (yes that exists lol)

If you have the Zwift Companion app on your mobile device, you can press and hold the U-turn button, and you will slow down to 15mph (~21kph) before making the turn. You cannot make a U-turn under 3mph (~5 kph) and a U-turn may be delayed if there are riders trying to pass you. There are also some routes that don’t have a reverse option (see our courses and routes article).

You can also hit the ‘Down Arrow’ on your Keyboard to initiate the U-turn if you do not have the Zwift Mobile Link app. 

You can also check out our Zwift Courses and Routes article to see which courses allow you to go in reverse, and which do not. 

Let me know if you need any additional help!
