All you get from the tracker is a set of positions, with no information at all about what happens between positions. The tracker page just joins the final position before the Spot was turned off to the first position after it was turned on. There's no "on" or "off" signal, so that's all it can do.

Nothing particularly suspicious. He transferred to a vehicle at that point, and while the GPX file directly downloadable from Strava 'joins the dots' to include that transfer, he did switch off the timer on his GPS, so the course file records what looks like the correct distance. The difference between the two is 292.75km (.crs file) and 325.25km (GPX). The summary distance on Strava matches the lower, course file.

His time-distance chart for the day looks reasonable:

Day 27: Steve breaks 5,000 miles in under 4 weeks. Kurt puts in a long day to match Steve's long weekend on his 18th day.

The visualisation is great. One question though..is it possible to reposition the legend on the full year page? It currently obliterates some of the information on the graph?

I'll look at adding the ability to move the legend when I get some time. You can of course simply remove it if it gets in the way (either by selecting the Steve 'Legend' tick-box or pressing the 'L' key).

Day 28: A stunning 400km+ day from Kurt lifts his progress line back towards Tommy's annual average. Steve's journey from Dorset back to MK on a windy cold day keeps him above his own schedule.

Day 29: After his 250 mile day on the 28th, a later start and yet more mechanical problems for Kurt returns his average to 200 miles per day. Steve continues his very steady 10-day move away from his upper schedule.

Steves line is now telling its own story of consistancy. Brilliant.

Day 30: More consistency from both riders. Kurt starts the day with some circuits to bring his average daily distance back up to 200 miles per day. Steve bangs out another 190 miles to keep him on his recent two-week pace. Both continue to distance themselves from Tommy's January rides.

Steve is utterly metronomic, it's astounding.

A metronome that will swing from andante, to vivace, to presto over the coming months.

January 2015: Impressive performance from two outstanding riders. Kurt is currently riding about 16 miles per day more than Steve. Should that continue, he would overtake Steve in absolute distance by mid-April (day 103) despite starting 10 days later. However, Steve's schedule is for significantly lengthening his daily distances by that time and while Kurt strays from his published strategy, there will be some interesting times in the spring.

Crikey. It'll be interesting to see how that pans out.

Looking at the cumulative distances, it seems Steve will probably pass through the 10,000km mark on Tuesday.

Excellent graphic Jo.

I like how it demonstrates that Steve's been keeping to the flattest part of England, namely East Anglia.

No problem sharing Del. If there is a chance to credit me "Jo Wood, giCentre, City University London" and/or http://gicentre.org/oytt would be appreciated.

There will be more of these as the months go by.

Awesome stuff, jo! Any chance you could do something with elevation data?  :P
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

Thanks for that, shared and credited as above.  ;)

I've also borrowed from Oaky's Marsh GAS info.  ;D

Approximate relative areas:



That US is rather a big place given Florida is just a little dangly bit off one of its corners.

Day 32: Another month, another pair of impressive rides. Kurt now averaging over 201 miles per day. Steve battles a long day of headwind to keep above schedule and 1,000 miles ahead of Tommy.
