He's off, despite a late finish earlier this morning.

Today is going to be a significant one for Steve. Good luck.

Today is the day when he ends it above the Godwin average?

And tomorrow is another day when he starts below it.

Seems to be flying today - 26km/h according to the Ivan-o-matic.  Does the distance/routing calculator start off hopelessly optimistic each day, getting closer to the truth as time progresses, or does Steve slow down a bit?  Or both?

Och, I need to pay attention.  Today is day 88.  Whilst a fortuitous number for the Chinese, it wasn't for 21st century TG.

In case anyone hadn't spotted the significance of today (day 88 of his reboot), here is day 88 of Steve's first attempt. Thankfully, he's doing much better this time round and I predict he will end the day above Tommy's WR line.

Steve is off for one of his little "extra" runs, heading Northward! Will Jo's prediction become reality? Tune in later or in the morning.....

It's going to be close. He's done a little less than I thought he might today given his speed, but then the SPOT tracker page has not caught the first 30 minutes of riding...

I read these threads most days and, though I rarely comment, I remain in total awe of Steve's tenacity and doggedness as well as his superhuman attributes.   The most audacious of men.   Add to these qualities that he's such a decent bloke and you have a truly exceptional man.

Roll on Steve.

Won't he object?

The punctuation/grammar threads are elsewhere....

ALLEZ STEVE!

205.67 miles, still being troubled with the gutrot. That's pretty much bang on 1 Godwin. Amazing work by Our Man.
