Saddle up for the Tour de Zwift 2024, the virtual training platform’s ‘biggest party of the year’ where the dress code is Lycra and the ride is always on.

Tour de Zwift is an eight stage event which gives indoor cyclists and runners from across the globe the chance to get together and explore Zwift’s virtual realms. Taking place every January and lasting around 6 weeks, the Tour is the perfect way to jump start your fitness, ready for the year ahead.

This year, Zwifters can choose to ride, run or race the Tour. Each of the eight stages takes place in a different virtual world, with a selection of route distances available. Alongside the fun, community feel of the riding and running events, Zwift has also introduced a race event on each stage for those looking to get competitive. Race every stage, or mix and match the group ride and race events. Your party: your choice.

Alongside the opportunity to explore virtual worlds and challenge yourself to complete every stage, the Tour also gives Zwifters the chance to unlock virtual – and real life – goodies along the way. Take part, and you can expect to experience unique in-game graphics, unlock new kit for your virtual garage and grab a coupon to treat yourself to some IRL kit.
