The new Zwift route features together with RideLondon will allow you to climb also Box Hill

Zwift officially launched the course on the eve of Prudential RideLondon and the virtual course features both the central streets of London and the Surrey Hills, included the iconic climb of Box Hill which has been climbed at the 2012 Olympic Games. This follows on from Zwift’s rendering of the 2015 World Championships course in Richmond, and the company is confident that its London course will prove just as popular.

Zwift users can connect from everywhere in the world and pick one of the two loops realised together with RideLondon. The first one is a 14.8km (9.2mile) that connects the centre of London to Box Hill, while the second one (5.5 km; 4.3 miles) is a representation of RideLondon classic route. In the future, Zwift anticipated in a press release, extension of London architectural landmarks and areas will be uploaded.
