The developers and artists at Zwift have created a new route, Alpe de Zwift. They imported GPS data from Alpe d’Huez. Their ride starts at sea level in the jungle of Watopia, but quickly climbs up above the snow line. The scenery may not match the real thing, but the road has the same 21 switchbacks and the same profile.
How it was made
One of the first to ride it.
You have to be a Level 12 Zwifter to ride it, unless you join a group ride that’s going.
The 2018 ride schedules for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings are now on-line.
Please visit this page for full details.
The monthly breakfast ride dates have also been entered in the calendar.
Concession 8, the road that goes south from Desboro through Mooresburg, is being resurfaced. It is currently torn up and barricaded from Side Road 6 to Side Road 8, which is just south of Mooresburg. It can still be crossed using Side Road 7.
It will remain a gravel (tar and chip) road according to the Chatsworth Township announcement, so it will be a while before it is ride-able again.
Cycling friends: Be aware that at the bottom of Lindenwood hill there is fresh tar and gravel. SLOW DOWN. Continues to next corner. Dusty too.
Please note that for the remainder of the season the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday training and recreational rides will leave at 17:30.
And, although Monday Sept 5th is a holiday, there will still be a ride.
