Day 351 / 132: Kurt leaves Flatwood for a day riding to the east coast at St Augustine. Rain at the end of the day cuts his ride a little short at 203 miles. Steve takes time to recover from recent tummy trouble so on doctor's orders keeps to a shorter local ride including laps of the Milton Keynes Bowl for a 100 mile total.

Day 352 / 133: Kurt sticks to the Florida east coast, riding south from St Augustine to Vero Beach. Rain and highway detritus add interest to his 209 mile ride. Steve continue to suffer digestive health issues combined with the need to rest so has another short day mostly riding loops of the MK Bowl for a total of 107 miles.

Day 353 / 134: Kurt rides back to the Florida west coast mostly following the wind for exactly one Godwin. Steve begins his recovery, sticking to local roads and the Milton Keynes Bowl. His 184 mile total for the day sees him passing Rene Menzies' 1937 record of 61561 miles.

From the Kurt thread:
Godwin has three records.

The classic calendar year record, the "year" record and the 100K record. I suspect Kurt will only take one of these .
I think Kurt's stated intention is only to go for the 2nd of those 3, but Steve has talked about all 3.
As this is the main thread for number-crunching:

How is Steve looking against the 100,000mile schedule? IIRC it's 500 days, so at 200mpd a little softer than the 205 figure (or whatever-Kurt-sets-in-January).

Steve needs 261 per day for the remaining 147 days were he to take the 500 utilising the original year. 

He can sensibly utilise some of his post ankle miles plus the year up to August but IIRC he'll need to raise Kurts benchmark by a fair bit to step off the bike taking the year and the 100k at midnight at the end of his current year.  I did quantify 'a fair bit' in a thread a while back (with a bit of guesstimation as it was a week or so before the restart) but I can't recall where the spreadsheet is just now.

Day 354 / 135: Back to Flatwood Park for Kurt as he does 213 miles of loops, half of which with company. Steve rides NE with the wind to Cromer before calling it a night and getting his first lift back to MK. The 185 miles takes him further ahead of Rene Menzies' 1937 total and edges him towards Ossie Nicholson's 62,657 record.

Jo thank you once again for your excellent daily graphs.  How many miles below the Godwin Line is he.  I mean that as opposed to the slightly higher  (looking likely ) Kurt line

Day 355 / 136: More Flatwood Park loops for Kurt. Knee pain prevents him riding the recumbent but he manages a healthy 217 miles on the upright. Steve has still to shake off his tummy bug problems and after a vehicle transfer from Cromer to MK, sticks to a short day of Milton Keynes Bowl laps for 65 miles. This leaves him around 1720 miles below the Godwin line.

Day 356 / 137: Kurt rides the Flatwood circuit with some fast company for a day's total of 223 miles. As he nears the end of his year, he's including some faster intervals and sprints in the mix. Steve starts from the Severn Bridge and rides NE with the wind. He fits in an appointment with a gastroenterologist for his digestive problems yet manages to squeeze 199 miles of riding into the day. In doing so, he passes 100kkm – that's 100,000km of riding since January 1st.

Doffs cap toward Mr Abraham.

To put that into perspective, if all those kms had counted toward the AUK individual award he'd be on 1,000 points. ONE THOUSAND POINTS!!!!!

Jeezus I'm still pleased at having done 100 points in a season. Once.
You're only as successful as your last 1200...

Day 357 / 138: Kurt sticks to Flatwood where he is able to get the fastest miles in and a good chance of company. Today's total of 220 miles take him to nearly 1050 miles above the Godwin line. Steve has a day of respite in the weather between westerly storms, riding back from Newmarket to MK with some evening Bowl action for a total of 158 miles.

Day 358 / 139: Kurt continues to push out the miles doing loops around Flatwood Park. Today, on Christmas Eve, with plenty of company to keep the morale and speed up he manages 229 miles. Steve has the benefit of a tailwind as he rides from MK to the north Norfolk coast and beds down for the night at Acle with 160 miles ridden.

Day 359 / 140: Christmas day. Kurt leaves Flatwood for a 'recovery day' riding NW for a series of repeats totalling just over one Godwin. He is currently around 1070 miles above the Godwin line. Steve rides back from the Norfolk Broads to MK, suffering a major tyre cut on the way and a forced stop while he waits for repairs. He makes up some of the distance by doing some evening repeats and circuits of the MK Bowl, all in for 182 miles and within a day of taking Ossie Nicholson's 1937 record.

Day 360 / 141: Yet another day of Flatwood loops for Kurt. He decides to call it a day after 214 miles when rain stops play. On recent progress, he should be exceed Tommy's record by around 1200 miles by the end of his 365 days. Steve rides 185 miles to Great Yarmouth and in doing so passes Ossie Nicholson's 1937 record of 62,657 miles.

Day 361 / 142: Alicia's birthday. To celebrate Kurt rides more laps of Flatwood adding another 210 miles to his total. Steve returns from Great Yarmouth in somewhat better weather for 176 miles.

Day 362 / 143: Kurt counts down on his virtual RAAM by riding another 219 miles around Flatwood Park in the company of various supporters and other riders. Fatigue gets the better of Steve who limits himself to a short trip to the MK Bowl for 25 miles. He is now 2075 miles below the Godwin line, requiring 215 mpd for the next 6 months to equal Tommy's record and over 220 mpd to beat Kurt's likely total.

Day 363 / 144: 212 miles of Flatwood laps for Kurt has he continues to tick off the virtual RAAM checkpoints. Steve has a late start and rides to 141 miles to Basingstoke via the Cotswolds yet again battling winter headwinds.

Day 364 / 145: Kurt puts another 216 miles in the bag via Flatwood Park and his virtual RAAM. He and Alicia agree to stick to Flatwood until the record is broken. Steve makes the return from Basingstoke with some wet weather but the benefit of some tailwind. He passes MK ending his 176 miles in King's Lynn.

Day 365 / 146: Kurt has a fast and long day looping around Flatwood with friends. In so doing, he adds 227 miles to his total. He is now within a week of taking the record, or if he wants to take it easy, just 88 miles per day until Jan 9th.

Steve completes his year of cycling with a total of 63,565 miles – exactly 11,500 miles behind Tommy Godwin, or around 66 days of riding at his average pace. That places Steve third in the all-time list of annual distance records behind Tommy and Bernard Bennett, although shortly to be shunted down one position when Kurt completes his year on January 9th. Over the year, including his time off in hospital and recovery after his broken ankle, he has averaged 174.2 miles per day and has spent 51% of every hour of the year moving on his bike.

From day 91 to day 152 we can see that Steve lost 7,500 miles due to the accident. Further recovery time will have been the cause of some or all of the remaining 4,000 miles short of Tommy. Quite how many of those miles would not have been lost without the accident and then the adjusting to a new diet we cannot be sure. It seems that Steve has shown that he is capable of achieving his target given good health and no broken bones.

You know how amazing you are at these graphics Jo, erm, is there any possibility we will see a line for Bruce?  I know it is a boatload more work for you so will understand if not.

I'm working on some enhancements that will include both Bruce and Kajsa's rides. Not sure how frequently I will be providing updates on this thread in 2016 though. I've calculated that in 2015 I've spent over 400 hours on visualizing and reporting various aspects of the OYTT. That's equivalent to 10 weeks of full-time work.
