Time to update Zwift: the neon lights of Neokyo are now on with Makuri Islands expansion

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.

RAILWAYS AND 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

Distance: 2.3 mi // 3.7 km, Elevation Gain: 16.7 ft // 5.1 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!

The vending machines should launch your power ups as you ride by! A Can of Boss thrown at you for an aero helmet
