Yes, very nice. And a great graphic.

The dangling rather reminded me of this:

Day 33: In over three weeks of riding for Kurt, he has an impressive moving average of 17.8 mph (28.6 kmph). Over a month of Steve's longer days at 13.7 mph (22.0 kmh) keep him above his 87,000 mile schedule.

Day 34: A longer day from Kurt is gradually moving is daily average upwards - 201.4 miles per day. Steve has one of the toughest days of winter weather so far with 15h30m out on the bike.

Day 35: After a month of riding, William is 5,000 miles behind Steve. This looks like a deficit from which he will not be able to recover, his longest ride to date being one third of the average daily distance of the other two. The consistency of Kurt and Steve is remarkable.

Indeed!
Also remarkable is the elegance of Jo's presentation.

I'm loving the visuals and the succinct reports: thanks jo  :thumbsup:


[I'm worried about the toll it's taking on him. Does he have the mental fortitude to keep going at this pace for the whole 365 days? Can his body take the strain? Do we need to arrange home support? Physiotherapy? More vegan sausages?]

Actually, William is even more remarkably consistent, it's a very straight line, unlike the zigzags of the two favourites. Does he never sleep?

Day 36: An incident with a car that failed to give way results in a slightly shorter day for Kurt and takes his daily average back to 200 miles. Steve puts in a long day to nudge his daily average to just over 186 miles keeping him within four extra days worth of riding from Tommy's WR pace.

Day37: A long incident-free day for Kurt keeps him within 150 miles of Tommy's WR pace after 28 days of riding. A bitterly cold northerly wind for Steve and a slightly earlier finish has him about 740 miles off the WR average.

Tarzans "rest" day appears to have worked, 205 mile day yesterday and he only stopped for 43 minutes. :o
He will pass Steve's January total with two days to spare

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. Movement (darker colours) estimated by comparing distance covered at 5 minute intervals (as usual, Steve in red, Kurt in blue and William in green):

[Edit] I've added a summary column for each day showing the proportion of the day moving (you may have to refresh your browser if you've previously viewed the older images).

That really tells the tactics story so far very clearly.  Thanks, jo.

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

I think Kurt is just getting faster, or at least reducing stopping time during the day as his end of day time isn't slipping to the same extent and he is still doing around 200 miles per day.

I've defragged each day now so you can really see the difference in the time spent in the saddle.

Day38: Another weekend and another long ride from Kurt keeps his pace at the WR average. Steve's trip to Leicestershire ensures he is above his schedule.

Day 39: A long weekend of riding by Kurt brings him to a significant milestone. He is now ahead of Tommy Godwin's mileage despite starting 9 days later in the year. Steve is 1,260 miles ahead of Tommy.

I amazed to see how Kurt manages to keep up the mileage when he appears to be posting so many videos on his Facebook page, plus having so much ill luck! Respect to them both but I prefer Steve's lower key profile of 'just riding my bike!' Go Steve!

To me that longer view appears to show that after Steves long weekend to York  he decided it was maybe a mistake at this time, and settled back into his 180 a day rhythm.
Right now if Kurt can maintain his current speed, time is heavily on his side.

I think it shows that Steve's ride to York put him onto a higher trajectory, above his optimistic schedule.  It also shows that his trajectory inevitably slipped back slightly during the colder weather we had last week.  Given it's a bit milder, and brighter, this week, I expect he'll wind things up very gradually.
