Interesting that Steve seems to be keeping to a set start time, whereas Kurt is slowly slipping backwards.

I reckon Kurt is adjusting his riding time to coincide with daytime ambient temperatures.

Later in the year, he could split his daily mileage into two to take advantage of morning and evening cool. Seista at midday.

Day 40: After forty days in the wilderness for Steve (but plenty of eating) a longer day narrows the gap slightly with Kurt who himself has some tyre deflation issues but crosses the 10,000km milestone.

As a number of people have expressed interest in comparing stopped vs moving time for the riders, I've had a go at visualising their moving time.

Will you be putting these on the gicentre website and updating them regularly like the progress graph Jo?

Now that Kurt has reached day 31 the first month comparisons can be made.
I make it:

Kurt     6218 miles     (removing the 6.1 miles of car transfer from 26th Jan)
Steve   5743.6 miles

And during the period from daily ride start to ride end Kurt spent 15 hrs 20 min less time stationary.

I'll have a go. At the moment the 'time moving' charts are written as a separate application. When I get some time, I will add this as an option to the OYTT chart page so that it is always up to date. I have a busy week this week, so may be a week or so before it is up and running though.

A bit like this one done by the aussies?

Scroll down near the bottom of page 9.

I think that's called a Firework chart.

Simple and visually effective.

If Steve achieves his upper schedule Kurt will need to average 242 miles a day for the next 11 months of the year to match it, compared with his average of 200 miles a day in January.

Day 41: Kurt makes up for a slightly shorter day yesterday by putting in the miles today. Despite a slight daily variation in distance, he appears to be riding to a steady WR pace. Steve has been slowly increasing his daily distance to keep him above his upper schedule.

Day42: Like day 41.



And Jo's endurance / resolve finally broke.

Or probably more likely Jo's work load caught up so that his little side project had to be set aside.

I set the alarm at 5:45 every morning in order to do the data processing for the previous day's riding before work proper starts (Strava -> chart -> YACF for all three riders about 20 minutes' work). If I ever feel like giving it a miss, a quick "but what would Steve do?" usually puts it into perspective. This morning, after a particularly heavy week, I was a bit lost for inspiration. Just think of it as a recovery day before the big push later on.

And in my defence, Day 42 was like day 41.  ;D

Day 241: Jo hasn't shaved in 3 months. But the graphs look great.

Yes; I read that as yet another perfect informative summary!

Jo, it wasn't meant as a dig. Thank you for all your efforts to develop and maintain the graph.

regarding daily data grabbing, do you not have a student who could be tasked in return for a nice little conference poster.

CS student, maybe.  They'd still be up from the previous day working on the code to grab the data automatically.

Matthew - your comment wasn't taken as a dig at all. I thought is was quite funny.

Much as it might be convenient to pass on to a student, I do really enjoy working on this and I fully intend to get some kind of paper out of it (I've already managed to get one of of the LEL visualization work, which I'll share once it is published).

I've tried to automate the data capture as much as I can. The time consuming bits are (i) getting the files from Strava converted into .crs files (the Strava API can't be used for this as it only allows you to process your own uploads); (ii) selecting an appropriate screenshot and two sentence summary for YACF. Perhaps I should just bung a graphic up and we have a caption competition.

I'm sure MegaHAL could generate a summary if you primed it with enough miles, sausages and gibbons...   ;D

Day 43: Kurt's day was slightly shorter than recent rides but he is still within a day's riding of Tommy's WR pace. Steve has had a straight run of ~200 mile days this week edging him away from his most optimistic schedule.

It will be interesting to see what effect Kurts participation in the Sebring 12 has on his daily milage. I predict an easier day the day before, a monster day in the event and then another couple of easier days as he "recovers".

A monster day? That would make a change.  ;D
