Or he's doing the night shift?

Hope he's OK all the same.

Indeed, and if he had forgotten it he would notice pretty soon and go back and get it.

...and/or tweeted as he did when awaiting a bike change.  Very strange.

0.0 ft was showing on the tracker between 9 and 10 this morning, indicating that he intended to set off at the usual time. Maybe he did?

It's not showing now.

Am I getting confused or has he now posted today's ride on Strava, but it comes up as yesterday because it started just before midnight  ???
 
Edit: hold on, no, that's two days ago...

That 186 mile ride is Monday's I believe.

It's Monday, but because the track includes 00:00:00 on Tuesday it gets listed under Tuesday's date (Strava lists it under the day of the latest date in the track).

If you click on the link (https://www.strava.com/activities/473588286) you see the start time listed above the ride name. In this case it's "00:00 on Monday, 18 January 2016".

It starts short of MK and includes the last 21.7km home early on Monday morning (so the end of Sunday's ride). Steve then sets off at 9:10am and heads North with the track stopping at midnight near Snaith some 20 miles short of where he ended up in York early on Tuesday morning.

It's been up there for at least a day, nothing new has been posted today as far as I can see.

Yes, on the Android app thingy. It generally shows the full distance until SPOT switched on at which time it resets to 0.0 ft. Steve generally departs a few minutes later. So still the question,  does he have a dodgy tracker,  or did he go back to bed -  or something else??

Ride for Tuesday now on Strava, so don't know who or where this was posted from...

I just look at my bike and I feel tired :)

I, too, am worried about Steve.

I got a reply via fb message from Idai; he says he saw him this morning and he's ok. No further details.

Thanks for posting Dave  :thumbsup:

Idai couldn't have been less informative if he'd tried.  :(

Looks worrying - certainly very odd that yesterday's ride posted so late if,  as we suspect,  he's been in Milton Keynes - perhaps we can deduce that Idai has sort of confirmed this. The usual pattern would be for him to set off soon after. It's very cold out there..  We don't know what to think.

Its about time someone from the 'team' made a statement rather than leaving everyone hanging. What does 'ok' mean?

There is a comment elsewhere from 18th about giving Steve a lift to Pompey to be able to ride North?

No, from the trackleaders site (http://trackleaders.com/oneyeartimetrial15i.php?name=Steve_Abraham) which shows the last time there was any contact from Steve's SPOT tracker. If the SPOT tracker had been switched on after that point then the time of last update should have been updated.

The last trackpoint (3:11:39am on 01/20/16) is when he eventually got home from yesterday's (Tuesday's) ride.

All sounds plausible - Either I'm wrong then or the tracker's broken - expect we'll find out sometime. None of this answers the mysterious Strava upload though, or the enigmatic Idai 'OK'.

AIUI the Android app just scrapes the trackleaders site, so it may show something else due to misinterpretation or miscoding.

Oof, the rules seem harsh if either the tracker or Garmin fail:-

Quote
11. If both/either tracker and GPS data fails, the distance credited will be the shortest distance via cycleable road between locations documented in the witness book.
12. In the case of communication failure where either/both of the live tracker or trip recorder data is unavailable, the rider shall send an explanation (email or text message preferred) as soon as possible to the Records Chairman. The mileage involved shall be considered to be provisional until the Records Chairman can decide on the validity of the explanation.

So, the daily checking on Steve's progress from 1st January through to the day on the ride back from South Wes  when he was hit by the moped, the tracker stopped; through the  one legged heroics and the re-start the problems with diet and then weather - and have forgotten following through PBP too... well it looks to me that today is the day when the Steve stalking or cheering on appears to have come to an end.

I hope I'm wrong. And am aware that this has felt to be increasingly inevitable over the last few weeks.

And if,alas, I'm right - rest well Steve; you've given your best shot and in my eyes and many others you're a hero

Still rather be wrong though and it's a tracker etc problem and you're out there now...

If it's a tracker problem, TG has more than a year's good faith to fall back on in all the rides he's ridden (assuming he doesn't claim to have ridden to Thurso and back, for example). I'd hope the overseers would take that into account as a one-off.

We don't know.

Because there is no communication from Steve's team.

Not even a simple FB post, YACF message, Strava update or a tweet.

I hope Steve is ok.
