Zwift, indoor cycling and the Mayan Jungle Route!

Zwift HQ have delivered the promised update and it does not disappoint. Three new routes have been created namely:

  • Big Loop (42.8km, 26.6 Miles & 663m Elevation)
  • Jungle Circuit (19.9km, 12.3 Miles & 200m Elevation)
  • Road to Ruins (30.1km, 18.7 Miles & 276m Elevation)

I’ve only had chance to try the Jungle Circuit so far but it’s a wonderful ride and very challenging! If you’re working out in the gym, at home or on a direct trainer in the garage, make sure the fans are on! You encounter a steady climb for a few kilometers before you enter the new stretch of road but it’s well worth the wait! So who can ride the new Mayan Jungle roads? You have to be level 10 or over to ride on your own or ride with a friend who just happens to be level 10 or as part of a group. If you are level 10 then you’ll see the Jungle Gate in green, for anyone else it’s red and not available.

Intrepid Shane Miller has ridden the route and has published a great video, it’s well worth a view. He talks throughout his ride and gives us his first impressions on the new expansion. Over to you Shane:

 So if you’ve ever wanted to cycle through rolling terrain and some quick high speed decents then this may just be for you! One thing I should add that the new roads are also available to level 10 runners – so Ride On or Jog On – the choice is yours!

To access the Mayan Jungle Expansion, head to the wind farm in Watopia Island and cross the bridge toward the Epic KOM route. The entrance is southwest of the Spruce Goose, the new base of the Epic KOM.
