Did it really matter that it was inaccurate? I'd rather some idea of distance travelled in real time than wait for a Strava upload later in the evening. That's still the "official" record.

On that point I see that the Strava feed on Steves website is now in km and not miles.

From what I remember the mileage was a  total figure which was already something like 8% out -- after a month or two - this figure would have become meaningless.

we were also getting  queries about the difference - so rather than keep having an inaccurate and getting more inaccurate every day figure -- it has gone.

I agree on a daily thread but think that perhaps they could be merged into weekly blocks after a suitable interval has passed.

I think it is a shame that the tracker does not display distance. It's not hard to understand what is going on.
Basses lower the tone.

Why merge them?

Why not leave them the way they happened, the way we all contributed to them day by day as Steve rode day by day?

AFAICS all merging would achieve would be to make things more confusing to read and less searchable.

Less searchable than it is already? Wowsa.

Quite.

Interesting in that I've just come home, read this thread and haven't got a clue how Steve got on on the 5th!

I vote for thread a day.

I like this format too, but it made me realize we'll want some pinned posts (or a pinned index post) in the main Tommy Goodwin board for the frequently accessed things that may otherwise get buried after a month. Donation info, tracker pages, etc.

I grabbed some screen shots of it, if anyone requires. (Else it's probably a simple mock up)
