It takes me the best part of a year to do that sort of mileage.
Go for it Steve!

Bloody good luck Steve, wishing you fair winds and weather.
2017 targets: Two achieved, the two remaining look to be at significant risk.

Good luck Steve.  I reckon 7000 plus is possible.  Last year your September schedule was 7200 and you managed 6436 but with just one month of mile eating should succeed. I've no doubt you've reserched your routes etc along with dietary requirements from all you learned last year.  We shall follow your days riding with great interest.  Weather wise it's looking like just what you  (likely ) ordered

He appears to have set off just after midnight and I can't see the distance on the spot track.  Can someone prod Ivan, I think we need his Science back up.

Looks to me like the tracker in Steve's link records point to point, not the route, so doesn't give mileage.

Presumably, he has another gadget on board which is doing that.

Woohoo Steve!

Do we have any details of his support for this attempt?

I now have a new red "go faster" helmet as the old one seems a little battered (I only had it just over a year!)

Haha, that made me chuckle! "Only"! ;D

Best of luck! :)

It was interesting to note that he had 2000m of climbing in the same distance that Amanda C. Has around 200m!

Yeah, but he still managed 226 miles in windy conditions and is 61 miles ahead of schedule on his second day (target is 7000 miles in 30 days = 233 mpd).

Go Steve!
