Welcome to the InsideRRR course overview of the Richmond UCI Reverse route on the Richmond Zwift World. Read on to see details of the route, route profile, photographs of the course, and my own ride data.
The Richmond UCI Reverse course on Zwift is, unsurprisingly, the exact reverse of the Richmond UCI course. The scenery is very similar, dominated by skyscrapers and churches - with industrial heritage to the bottom of the course.
The ride is entirely different though, the climbs come early, at the very beginning of the circuit, and much much steeper in this orientation. There are an exceptionally large number of climb and sprint segments on this ride, with the two big climbs exceptionally challenging. Don't be surprised to see riders around you almost stationary on the 21% section.
Highlights of the route include the suspended train track on the dockside section of track - there is much traffic on this section, so expect to see at least a few trains on each passing. Other highlights include the grain store, and the house you ride under on the way.
As an event only route, you will need to join a group ride or event on this route to follow it - we did so on a ZZRC 1.5w/kg ride.
