It’s been teased for almost a month, but Zwift’s latest map expansion is finally open for business riding. Modeled after the big cities of Japan, Neokyo offers a fun, vibrant feel plus eight new routes.

Zwift Neokyo update

Hidden within the world of the Makuri Islands and doubling it in size, Neokyo offers a completely different experience with huge buildings, wild neon lighting, and a dazzling arcade that’s comically filled with “arcade games”—bikes on stationary trainers in front of a screen.

In total, there are eight new routes, with the longest offering 20.2 miles and 2,261ft of climbing. Neokyo is fairly compact, so the longer routes will loop around a few times, sometimes climbing into the rooftops.


Take to the upper city where you will race along city railways and rooftops.
Distance: 3.8 mi // 6.1 km, Elevation Gain: 226 ft // 68.9 m


Feel the burn as you climb to the top of Neokyo, scaling rooftops and monorails on the way.
Distance: 2.3 mi // 3.7 km, Elevation Gain: 16.7 ft // 5.1 m


Paint the town as you dominate three sprints along this flat route through the city.
Distance: 8.9 mi // 14.4 km, Elevation Gain: 474.7 ft // 144.7 m


Keep that heart racing as you complete four sprints in a single route.
Distance: 7.6 mi // 12.3 km, Elevation Gain: 157 ft // 51.5 m


Explore everything that Neokyo has to offer including four sprints and a KOM along this challenging route.
Distance: 15.1 mi // 24.3 km, Elevation Gain: 562.3 ft // 171.3 m


Make your way through the heart of the city as you wind along this fast route.
Distance: 5.7 mi // 9.2 km, Elevation Gain: 268 ft // 81.7 m


This long flatter route will take you from the scenic countryside to the bustling city.
Distance: 16 mi // 25.7 km, Elevation Gain: 866 ft // 264 m


From downtown rooftops to mystical temples, grind to complete three KOM’s in a single route.
Distance: 20.2 mi // 32.5 km, Elevation Gain: 2,261.2 ft // 689.2 m

    There had better be vending machines with beer, hot and cold coffee and pokaris sweat on every street corner or I’ll be sorely disappointed!
