Previously somewhere on here was a link to the blue dot page as apposed to the tracking page.  The blue dot page gave a much better idea of where Steve is as you could zoom in very clearly on satellite view  (but did not show the track) .  That page no longer seems to be working which is a shame.

I was enjoying the tracker but now the distance has gone I haven't looked at it since.   Where can I see his distance please?

On the tracker -- daily distance there now -- cumulative was just getting further and further out.
Strava is the official measuring system

Ah, it's fine - I've found him.   No 's' on his surname.   :thumbsup:

The 'where is Steve' pin seems to have reappeared on the tracker.  It seemed to have gone awol since the distance covered was removed - at least it disappeared for me.

Good luck from the Lees.  ;)

Strava seems easier to assess Steves wonderful progress at the end of each day,even though it does not give instantaneous details during the ride.I have not found The track leaders much help.

I trust team TG are keeping safe and secure offsite backups of all the .fit/gpx files with HR data intact

Surely we've got a cyclist contact within GCHQ?  They'll have backups of everything.

Of course they have. They know TG's inside leg measurement!

Of course GCHQ are interested. The Russians are also taking an interest in Steve and are intending to claim his achievement as their own.

You won. Get over it.

Interestingly when you "refresh location" the "status" doesn't update so the days mileage is not recalculated.

None of the trackers are updating at the monent, which is a tad inconvenient!

Anyone know what's going on?

Ivan's Clever SCIENCE has Steve's Google distance rather higher than the SPOT Tracker, which you'd expect, but has Tarzan's SPOT the thick end of fifty miles more than the Chocolate Factory's ???

I’ve noticed that the track reduces in granularity for later samples. Means some detours Steve took today vanished - so more of an underestimate later on.

Yes, just noticed this for Tarzan, looks like I am running into Google's usage limits for their directions service, but my (sloppy) code doesn't check the return codes, will have to see what I can do.

I'm finding the tracker is causing script performance issues in Firefox, perhaps because of plotting a month's worth of routing. I've swapped to Ivan's tracker which is better.

Apologies if this has been discussed somewhere I've missed. Does anybody understand the reason for the discrepancy between the "race flow" graph on http://trackleaders.com/oneyeartimetrial15 and the accumulated miles on https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xz2QyYN6S5ve5X5lvNNwLDb4J8sEek1EOuE7qACqDbQ/pubhtml?gid=944055483&single=true

The graph seems to understate Steve's and overstate Kurt's miles.

Is it possible that it is picking up Kurt's vehicle transfers? Day 24 for Kurt looks decidedly odd with no sleep stop showing. You might expect a bit of under estimation for Steve as he does more wiggly routes and so will be underestimated by the track polling at 5 minute intervals.

I've not looked at the official,page since Ivan unleashed his Clever SCIENCE on an unsuspecting world but, yes, it does take ages.  I expect it's loading the data for the whole year coz it also takes an age to launch for IronOx.

At some point it'll take so long to load that it'll be unable to keep up in real time ;D

The Year Record Tracker app on Android is pretty quick to display results on my phone.

Agree with others that the standard app is very slow - much slower on my tablet than on the desktop for some reason.

I noticed today that according to the tracker, Steve’s moving average speed has just gone up from 16.1 to 16.2.
Out of interest, I took a look at Kurt’s tracker.  His is only showing an average moving speed of 14.5.
Surely one of those figures has to be wrong.  I would expect Kurt to moving much faster than Steve.
I assume the average moving speed means the average since the riders started at the beginning of the year?
