This continues to be completely outside my comprehension. (And I don't mean the graphs, they simply illustrate both beautifully and clearly what these people are doing, and therefore lead directly to even greater levels of incomprehension on my part.)

...and the continuing variety of the graphs is beautiful in itself, as well.

Thanks Jo!

Steve passes the UMCA month record distance.

With one day to go, Steve passes the previous UMCA month record distance of 6680 miles held by André Goeritz. As of midnight at the end of day 29 Steve has ridden 6841 miles.

The unspoken competition between Steve and Amanda is very close. Steve's daily average of 235.9 miles compares with Amanda's of 236.1 but he has been gaining fast in the last few days. That difference represents only 6 miles over 29 days of riding. Who ends up riding further may well depend on the weather conditions faced by both riders. Storms in Florida have kept Amanda's distances a little shorter than she had been riding earlier in the month while East Anglian wind has been slowing Steve on some of his rides.

Riding 264 miles on his final day, Steve's 30 day record now complete with an (unofficial) total of 7105 miles. That's an average of 236.8 miles per day. Over the same period Amanda rode 7088 miles, averaging 236.3 mpd.

Chapeau to both!

Is there any chance of a graph update now we are another 6 weeks into the challenge?

Yes. Sorry for the long gap - too much other stuff going on.

Day 179 (Amanda Coker) / Day 314 (Kajsa Tylen) / Day 159 (Alicia Searvogel

Amanda having weathered a number of tropical storms and hurricanes continues to make exceptional progress. She has ridden nearly 41000 miles with an average of over 228 mpd. Kajsa had a brief interruption due to the lurgy but has mostly been riding centuries taking her total to over 28,100 miles and an average of 89.6. She is currently 2678 miles ahead of Billie Dovey's pace with 1460 miles required before the end of the year to beat her record (an average 28.6 mpd). Alicia has recovered her mojo after a bit of a rougher patch and is currently averaging 94.4 mpd with a total of nearly 15000 miles.

Thank you! Makes it much clearer :-)

As I understand things, the delightful Kajsa is likely to take the Guinness record.

Alicia, if she continues, will get a HaMR age-group record.

Amanda, if she continues at this rate,  will get HaMR age-group and overall record.

If and when Amanda's record(s) become certified by the UMCA, Guinness will do the same. She has this in writing.

Hi Jo,

If you're able to do a graph update at some point with Kajsa's completed record and where Amanda is up to, I'd be interested to have a look! :)

Thanks! :)

Anyone know of any up to date visualisation of Amanda and Steve's progress?

Thanks!

I collected Steve's Strava-data from his attempts for a comparative overwiew:

After 95 days (June 6th) the daily average of Steve's 3rd attempt is 222 miles/ day. This puts him about 1580 miles above the "Godwin-line" (i.e. 205,7 miles/ day). Kurt Searvogel rode very similar daily averages in his best HAMR-months 2015 (May till July, November, December).

With daily averages between 220 (April 2017) and 225 miles (March 2017) Steve is cycling a bit longer and a bit faster than during his best months in 2015 (June and September 2015), when he rode around 215 miles/ day. Steve's best month ever so far is his HMMR-attempt in September 2016 when he reached 236 miles/ day, thanks to a slightly higher average speed.

While Steve's average daily speeds 2017 show considerable variation, monthly data leads to pretty homogeneous values of about 16 miles/ hour. The monthly average daily riding time is pretty stable, too, overall average is 13,9 hours/ day.

My impression:
Steve is in better shape than 2015 and he is on a good way to beat Tommy Godwin's 1939-mileage (75075, 205,7 miles/ day) and Kurt Searvogel's 2015 (76076, 208,4 miles/ day). But Kurt's setbacks 2015 and Steve's lower winter miles show that a comfortable lead can quickly vanish. I hope that Steve's anomalous daily routines with several sleepless nights do not overstretch his immune system.

Amanda Coker's 20106/2017-record of 86573 miles (237,2 miles/ day) is out of Steve's reach.
