Just to add that there is a slight pause in OYTT visualization proceedings while some Real Life occupies my time. Hopefully back to thought for the day by the weekend.

More thanks, in particular it is useful when you have, as the germans might have it, gantzvollstandigkeinfourrummingmessingtzeit, to have a single point of truth to head for to find out the latest.

Jo's graph is the best way to follow progress.

This is something that really needs to be automated.

Day 105: Kurt's birthday ride clocks up a very respectable 212 miles doing loops around Little Rock. Matched by Miles's tour de Mornington who fits in 217 miles between sleeps. Rumour has it that Steve's new trike will be ready shortly.

Day 106: After an agonising wait, Steve makes his first one-legged recorded ride on his new trike with 80 laps of the Milton Keynes bowl. The scale of the challenge means that even with 50 remarkable miles, he still slips a long way behind Tommy's pace. Disaster for Kurt as he picks up serious digestive problems from a contaminated water bottle. Rest and a saline drip, but he still manages a tentative mile to keep a daily contribution to the challenge.

Day 107: Kurt recovers slowly from his tummy bug with plenty of sleep, a fever, but still 13 miles on the bike for a bit of variety. Steve's left leg takes him to the bowl again for 82 anticlockwise miles. Miles continues his back and forth across the bay with two working legs and a functioning digestive system.

Day 108: A day after being laid low by his stomach bug, Kurt is back up to 101 miles of "recovery" riding. Steve pedals another 83 miles with his heroic left leg. The full year view shows the impact of both their circumstances.

Day 109: Kurt is back already to 202 miles in a day despite still recuperating from the last few days' illness. Steve wanders the roads of Milton Keynes to avoid going stir crazy in the MK bowl. Miles heads north from Melbourne for an impressive 236 miles.

Day 110: Kurt hits the 20,000 milestone as he cycles SE to the Mississippi border. Steve is back in the bowl for 90 miles of round 'n' round. A transfer back to Melbourne for Miles leaves him with a shorter day riding north and south between Melbourne and Wandong.

I don't know about "Thanks" - but if you can decipher and make sense of some of Miles miles then you deserve a medal!!

Keep up the good work   :thumbsup:

20,000 miles! Good grief, that is some riding - and Steve's not far behind, despite all his woes. The accomplishments of all of these riders are astonishing, as is jo's amazing commentary and visualisation. Thanks again, jo!

Day 111: Still recovering after his illness, Kurt heads south along the Natchez Trace down to Louisiana for 150 miles. Steve rides to the bowl via a circular route before many more circles for 90 miles. Miles is back doing the tour de bay from Melbourne.

I wish I understood it. Diagrams have never been my strong point. The spatial  bit of IQ tests...eek.

I'm one of those who really groks this representation - I think it's superbly clear in both showing the achievement so far, and the magnitude of what remains. I just wish I had the ability to conceive of such a way of visualising numbers. Jo, thanks from me too.

Day 112: Kurt is back on form with 205 miles heading east to the Mississippi gulf coast. Steve's left leg takes him around MK for some more bowl action for 72 miles. Miles continues to get familiar with the bay road.

Day 113: Steve continues to build up his left leg around the Milton Keynes Bowl with a 91 mile day. Miles follows his familiar route along the Port Phillip Bay with little sleep in 24 hours. Kurt also rides loops, this time for 222 miles in southern Mississippi.
