Just as the weather is starting to turn, riders can explore 19 kilometers of fresh, never-before-seen roads in Watopia. The newly accessible Zwift Coastal Causeway has been utterly inaccessible by bike until now. It contains some of the most lush and exciting parts of the Watopia universe. Plus, the views are amazing.
What to Expect in the Zwift Coastal Causeway
The new Southern Coastal Causeway offers riders five distinct environments. The new roads also connect with existing Watopian roads, giving you more places to ride on the virtual island. For those following on the map, the new road links Fuego Flats with the Mayan Jungle.
Longer Routes Than Ever Before
The Zwift engineering team worked to link some of the longest routes in all of the Zwift worlds with the new addition of Coastal Causeway.
The new roads have allowed Zwift engineers to design eight new routes – some of Zwift’s longest that use a mix of new and existing roads.
- Coast Crusher (34 kilometers and 172 meters of ascent)
- The Big Ring (48 kilometers and 268 meters of ascent)
- Accelerate to Elevate (41 kilometers and 1,152 meters)
- Shorelines and Summits (46 kilometers and 776 meters of climbing, including the Epic KOM)
- Sugar Cookie (33 kilometers and 250 meters of climbing)
- Going Coastal (16 kilometers and 63 meters of climbing)
- Temple Trek (6 kilometers and 25 meters of climbing)
- Canopies and Coastlines (22 kilometers and 124 meters of climbing)
New Sprint Segments
The new road closely hugs Watopia’s coast and is relatively flat. Zwift offers four new sprint segments: Stoneway Spring, Acropolis Sprint, Sasquatch Spring, and Woodland Sprint.
How do I get the Zwift Coastal Causeway?
The new Southern Coast expansion is part of the 1.51 game release, which begins rolling out to Zwifters starting today (10/25), with all having access by Friday (10/28). In addition to the expansion, Watopia also receives a refresh with this release, so keep your eagle eyes peeled for a few hidden Easter Eggs!
