My thoughts

I think that it is great to see the Makuri Islands expand and I am very excited to ride the new routes. It was also great to see Zwift roll out the earlier last week(https://thespeedhound.com/blogs/news/zwift-pack-dynamics-3-0). The new routes look amazing and I think the game designers put a lot of effort into this world, making it one of the best designed worlds on Zwift. I expect some new routes over the next few releases, and maybe some new roads in the next 6 months ish. Maybe Mt. Fuji? Or possibly Mt. Zuji. I thought that Yumezi was the best designed roads that Zwift had done, but Neokyo easily 1 ups it. Thanks for reading and check back soon for more Zwift related news! A video of Neokyo will be uploaded shortly. Stay tuned!
