Have you ever seen us both in the same room at the same time?

I might have done and never realised it.

Are you a blonde 24 year old female? If so, I'm guessing you're one and the same Jo dammit.

I'm looking forward to Tarzan's start as well. I've ben disappointed that IronOx hasn't been the magnet for our attentions that he might have been.

I'm a bit confused by Tarzan. I thought he had said that he was intending to try to break this record whilst working occasionally. If that's so then I don't think he really comprehends the order of magnitude of the task ahead. OTOH, he's a RAAM guy. He should have some idea.

Jo
Fabulous piece of work
Is this going to be 'online' anywhere soon ?
Those of us who are already hooked on TG-watching will want to set it as their home page.

Thanks PpP. I will place it online in the next day or so. I am still working on making it work smoothly on iOS devices and tidying up the interaction.

Nice one Jo!

Love this jo.

Is it possible to pick up the top (say) 5 Strava cyclists for comparison?

Tarzan’s chart still looks slightly offset, perhaps it’d be worth adjusting for time zone.

Thanks for pointing that out Simon. Now corrected for local timezones (both Tarzan and IronOx), which makes comparison a little easier. After Tarzan's second day of riding, he is inching ahead of Steve's second day...

Things remain close as of 12th Jan...



Looks like it was a day of two halves for Steve yesterday - much faster with the wind until lunch then battling against it on the way back.

Team is curious - we thought that Tarzan would demonstrate his strength by putting in bigger days than Steve at the start - then begin to find it hard going later -- hare and tortoise -- just doing a few more miles than Steve each day seems to be a developing tactic.

A tactic I can understand - it's always nice to have a target. Assuming he still intends to do a short seventh day, he's going to need to get further ahead on the others though, isn't he?

He actually did fewer miles than Steve on day 3, but is ahead on account of his marginally longer first couple of days. But I can see that attempting to approximately match Steve would be a good way of him to assess his own ability at taking the record.

There's a growing body of Teethgrinder fans here at work now so I shared the latest image with them. There were complimentary responses and a couple of 'Who did those?' I told them it was a fellow Audaxer who lectures in graphs and does graph research in London. That's about right isn't it, Jo?

That looks great, Jo - but (you'll probably hate me for this...) is it possible to match it against Tommy's daily achievement, rather than the average over the year?

It is. Perhaps Tim means the horizontal should be Tommy's line. If so, I'd prefer the existing arrangement.

Thanks! And yes, that about sums it up - "Professor of Visual Analytics" is my formal title, so I am lucky enough to be able to do this kind of thing both for fun and for a living.
