Day 172: Over the longest northern hemisphere day when Tommy Godwin rode an incredible 361 miles in 1939, the 2015 riders each rode comparative 'recovery' distances: 201 miles for Kurt, 199 for Steve and 131 for Miles. A reminder what a challenge this is.

Day 173: UMCA have retrospectively recognised Kurt's missing 138 miles from June 11, which means he's officially been above Tommy's pace for the last week. He continues with another 222 miles up the west shore of Lake Michigan. Steve has a premature stop south of Boston for a shorter than usual 135 miles. Meanwhile in Melbourne, Miles does another bay trip for 141 miles.

The total you have for Kurt (33,802) seems to be about 60 miles higher than the official total which I estimate to be 33,739.7 at the end of the 22nd Jun (31,811.9 on 13th June from latest pdf, adding 1927.7 logged via Garmin since)

I think this dates back to the 12th March, which is when the official record for Kurt started using the garmin connect data instead of the strava data - there seems to be about 0.5 miles discrepancy between the two each day (garmin always on the low side).  Using the 21st June as an example 201.1 was posted to (strava), but 200.6 was posted on (garmin connect)

It's not much each day, but it's going to be ~160 miles by the end of the challenge

Isn't that discrepancy due to Garmin not counting distance moved when the device is paused, whereas Strava fills the gap & adds the mileage (which is what happened when he had that early vehicle transfer)?

Garmin connect uses additional information such as a speed/cadence sensor in the tcx file format. I had exactly the same issue with my ride on Sunday, which was about 2km shorter in Strava than claimed from wheel rotations.

Some of that difference is down to calibration (I used a notional figure of 2105mm for 700x25C in my example). But also, GPS distances will tend to be marginally shorter due to corner cutting in the track.
