Alicia's attempt will start on June 4th.

Do we know where?

Day 1 seemed to go well.  Day 2 sounded harder.  But Alicia is consistently riding centuries.

She appears (at present) to be splitting her rides, 100m am and around 30-40m pm?

And yesterday's afternoon ride was curtailed, courtesy of a Chilli lunch  :o

A Century A Day For A Year is about all it adds up to and that's enough for me. Sorry, not exactly exciting sports entertainment or data. I do like to make note of all the quirky unexpected things that happen, though...

A friend of mine made this comment, "It will be a deep personal journey and that will be interesting to you. You will discover things about yourself that you never knew."
My replied back, "I hope not! I've been on enough deep personal journeys. I want this to be an empty one!"

Eeek!  Well I guess that confirms the shoe cannot be more on the other foot in the Searvogel household.

Go Alicia! but go carefully please.
2017 targets: not worth worrying about a while yet - just ride.

On FB, Alicia reports a close call with a 'semi'* yesterday, but they were untouched.

Alicia is ditching the recumbent, having decided it is the root cause of her knee problems.

After noticing that there have been no Strava updates from Alicia in the last three days I checked her Facebook page. She reports that her nephew Evan was killed in a car crash on the 5th and she sounds pretty shaken up by it. Not sure what this means for her riding but it must be really tough for her at the moment. Thoughts are with you.

Yes, I saw that. Heart goes out to her and all that, but further posts suggested that she was still riding. Not sure how far.

Alicia is piling on the miles in the closing stages.  Not sure if there is a minimum to set a category record, but I imagine she's surpassed it.

Here's to a big finish!

It may be coincidental but she needs just under 200k/day to beak Kajsa's mark (about 194 at the mo I think, I don't have the numbers to hand)Edit: As at the end of tues 23rd it was 208 km/day. I know KT wasn't riding HAMR rules, and AS may be entirely unaware of this fact, but it means that a little bit of drama can be manufactured from the numbers.

She mentioned she was riding for her category monthly record, which would explain it.

If Guinness have done a volte-face and recognised the HAM'R records, has the UMCA recognised Kajsa's Guinness record?

I doubt that they will. They strike me as being a lot more professional than Guinness. The GBoR are whores. Now they know they have a pukka organisation who cares about endurance cycling they can just print the results and pretend they are theirs.
