Pushed my max square up to 42 and the cluster over 2000.  Given that I'm not willing to use trains for something as trivial as a bike ride, I'm not expecting much more significant progress now the weather's turning.

Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Same here. But I did manage to opportunistically bag a tricky tile today, which was very satisfying. Went for a walk up the creek and because it was low tide and I had expeditiously worn wellies, I decided to go for it, and was able to head offshore *just* far enough. Strictly speaking, a no-go area, but since I stayed well below the high-water mark, I think that's OK.

No increase to my max square, which stands at 17x17, but I now have 14 of them. Still two tiles away from expanding to 19x19. Unfortunately, being hemmed in by the coastline on three sides means not much chance of expanding beyond 19 for a while yet.

I managed a paltry two or three squares last weekend. I have a training plan which only allowed for a 2h30 ride or so. It is what it is.

Probably not going to get any squares this weekend, judging by the forecast. I'll be doing two 2h30 z2 indoors workouts.

Well, I got fed up of looking out the window at the rain this morning so decided to go for a ride in it instead. I had a 110km route already planned, designed to pick off some tiles, so I went for it... and thanks to the wonders of modern sportswear fabric technology, I stayed warm and comfortable even when it was belting down.

The only thing that spoiled the ride was forgetting to pick up my water bottle and ride food on the way out, so ended up bailing out before I hit the wall, and got the train home. But still managed to get 75km done and more importantly, picked off most of the tiles I was after (seven) - and my max square is now up to 20.

Very satisfying day out!

Needed some scenery therapy after 3 days cycling in the central belt, cluster up to 1550. Good weather was forecast for rest of week. Down to D&G to catch some tiles, running total 28600 +. As usual if its not on Strava your cycling history does not exist.

Cycled across Germany from Lake Constanz to the Rügen Island in the past few weeks, this netted me slightly over 1000 new tiles but no increase in cluster.
A wonderful ride though.

You make me feel like a rank amateur. (Which I am, to be fair.)

Managed to get to 16x16 today with a 75km ride to the SW corner:



Wish I'd filled in that one tile south of Bridgwater as I'll have to return to that area to fill in before I can grow the square to the south.

Filling in 9 tiles on the lefty jumps the square up from 23 to 28. Aberfoyle forest and east of Uplawmoor were a pain.

Lovely 95km ride today to pick up 15 new tiles and take my max cluster from 742 to 770. Turned out to be a really good route too. Very happy with that.

Reckon you could just rock up at the door asking if you're in the right place for an eye test...

When you export the Max Cluster KML file, and it shows the tiles you haven't ridden, but only a slightly larger area than your max square.  Is there any way to make it show tiles further away?

On the map on the Activities tab under settings there are options to export various KMLs. It's dependent on the zoom setting so watch out!

Got an awkward tile yesterday by means of sneaking up someone's drive. Cluster up to 1603.

+72 to my cluster yesterday.   I planned a 200km DIY out into the Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire/Rutland/Leicestershire lanes, planned specifically to pick off some easy to get missing tiles. 

Cluster now 3385.
