Astounding perseverance from the Boy - unbelievable - according to the Tracker he's been on the go for 17 and a half hours today and still not back at base. Worried that according to the tracker he's 'only' done 150 odd miles though. Hope he's not in a bad state.
If only he could go a bit quicker and get more rest.......

Mind you if only I could go a bit quicker....but that's not going to happen. And have to confess took one look at weather this evening and left bike in the shed. A luxury not available to Steve.

GO STEVE!

The bottom line is; it's beyond reach now.  I'm very sorry to be of that opinion and I do know that the Thread can be closed, but Steve needs to have a long hard think about the task in front of him now.

Yes, it is negative; but someone has to get Steve to see sense and consider his health now.

From what I could see on the tracker, Steve moving speed was averaging around 10mph for the last few hours tonight.  If that is anywhere near accurate then it is worrying (unless it's something simple like a mechanical or weather phenomenon).

I doubt it....in fact I'd say there's not a cat in hells chance.

It's a bit like asking somebody to walk away from a relationship made in heaven. 'Are you kidding?'

As Jo's summaries are less frequent at the moment, I'm struggling to decipher what Steve has achieved. 

Was it 211km on Tuesday and 365km on Wednesday, giving a two day average of 185miles? So less than a Godwin over the two days?

Strava gives it as 130 +225 miles over the two days. = 177.5 per day.

What took Steve nearly 24 hours, with over 18 hours of riding time, is only just over what he's got scheduled on average for the whole of February.

I am likely to be moving to weekly summaries on the visualization thread. But in terms of Steve's recent progress, see the chart below with his 2016 schedule indicated.

I hope it is bright and sunny where you are going  Steve.  On the 14th January last year you reeled off 158 miles so I am sure you will do more than that today.

No need for the disclaimer. And thanks for the response.  I suspect we can all draw conclusions from the facts.

The Apostates will suggest it shows the folly of Steve's attempt.
The Cult of Steve will take heart that He achieved much more than scheduled on a single day, and that He will perform the miracle of turning bed into time.

I'm supportive, but open minded until end of January...where I'll still be supportive what ever Steve chooses to do and how ever successful or not that it might end up being :)
