Too much information, infographic is nice. Totals 26868 tiles, 11*11and MC 408. West coast has lots of lochs so not bothered about max square 😄

Get a pedalo

I'll give it a week before he starts moaning about people having more squares than him, going out at the wrong time of day, not sticking to the rules or anything else that doesn't suit his way of thinking. He moans like fuck about all other forms of cycling so this will be just another platform for his greetin face.

Jimbo check when i joined yacf😊 Most don't  link veloviewer stats,
showing off if you do😉 as no one else sees your Veloviewer page. Still upset about Strava comments? hope you never deleted them especially the last 2. 👿

Today's government mandatory exercise netted me 8 tiles, taking my total to 9910, with a cluster of 528.

Still on 17x17 though

Readers of this thread may be interested to know that this week's Cycling Weekly (dated 2nd April with "How Good Are You?" as the main headline) has a four page article on "tile hunting". Thought it was a pretty good one too.

I am up from 5x5 in February to 25x25. If I could face Luton town centre then 3 tiles will get me to 27x27. I have become a little bit addicted.

I cycled through Luton today to get to a couple of North Luton tiles to get me to 2 21*21 squares. 23 *23 should reasonably easy, getting more tiles in North London will be more challenging once the lockdown is over

Succumbing to peer pressure, this was probably my last ride for a while.
Still on 17x17, but my cluster has increased by 4 to 532, and my total tiles have increased by 15 to 9925
Stay safe

Couldn't resist the temptation of quiet roads and so headed out to East London early on Friday morning to harvest.
Barking and Dagenham, not probably an area that I would choose to ride to on a regular basis, but interesting to visit.
Highlight was riding through a deserted square mile (although to be fair early on a normal weekend/holiday I don't think it looks any more populous)
Bumped me up 1 to 48x48

...seems like a lot more are now discovering the joys and trials of the Max Square. A good activity in these times of solo riding.

Bagged 6 new tiles to take the max. square to 19. Max. cluster is up to 930. It's going to be difficult to get the square >20.

Yay! Finally! Two (I think) new squares for me! (Cammo Estate near Edinburgh Airport).
I "just" need to get the other two airport squares now. (Also the quiet roads mean I might go for the A702, normally a road to avoid...)

Been getting rid of some hard drives, used Ascent to log rides on the mac.  Transferred onto Strava and up almost 600 tiles to 27461. 2007 had some rides in France😁. Now i can delete the drives.

I had better start looking at the European Velo routes now. Just a matter of waiting until life is back to normal. 😂

There's still some room for improvement in your part of the standings. It's very quiet a bit more up the table (and most of us still riding).

The farmland and associated tracks around here are OOB at the moment due to lambing, so i'm stuck on a Max square of 17x17.
I have been able to increase my cluster by 12 to 544, and my total tiles have increased by 13 to 9938.

I think I'll focus on getting my total tiles to 10000 for the time being.

Well I got my two squares near the airport but it turns out that there are two Pentlands squares that I simply can't get to under current circumstances that block me on that side. There are other places I can go, though, and sometime I will get to those squares!

I am up to 29x29 - not bad considering it was 5x5 in Feb

There are only 4 tiles needed to get me to 31x31.

I have found the lockdown great for this - most of the gaps were caused by main roads which have been blissfully quiet recently.

So what's with the Reading bashing? Really that bad? When I come back to the UK, it's looking like that will be the destination.

Moved from 21*21 to 23*23 today after knocking of 8 squares, in ones and 2s. A couple required a bit of comedy off roading but it was a lovely day for it. 25* 25 should not be too hard, beyond that a lot of work to do.

One benefit of the lockdown, is how quiet the trunk roads are.

So a trip up the A68 to Carfrae Mill on Saturday, and another cross-border raid on the A699 to Cornhill-on-Tweed on Sunday increased my tiles by 23 to 9961
Max square is still 17x17, but my cluster increased by 52, to 596.

Like Revolution9, I made use of the quieter roads at the weekend - in my case, the A702 to West Linton. I picked off some random squares within the Edinburgh bypass last week and I've got my eye on a few more Midlothian squares which should up my cluster a bit more.
