You can see the patterns of movement that led to the slightly shorter distances for both riders yesterday (bottom row; Kurt in blue, Steve in red). An unusually long set of stops during the day for Kurt, an unusually late start and no second breakfast for Steve.

To be honest I think its remarkable that they haven't had more of these little technical issues (broken bikes, flat batteries) to keep them form riding.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Day 56: Both Kurt and Steve are showing remarkable consistency. While Kurt's daily distances can vary somewhat, he has maintained the WR pace over the last 11 days despite various mechanical difficulties. Steve has been knocking out just under 200 miles per day for most of the month.

Day 57: Another long day for Kurt (223 miles) raises is daily average to date to over 202 miles per day. Steve has a day of rain and wind but manages 193 miles in line with his February schedule.

When you look at the full year Sunday appears to be when Steve's line should start to go up. Which in my mind is when the challenge really begins.

When you look closely, you you see that there is a change in the slope of Steve's schedule at the end of each month. Does anyone know how many miles per day corresponds to each monthly slope? Maybe Jo will be kind enough to compute that for us!

Thank you!

So, he's planning to ride 285 miles per day, every day, in July? That makes me feel so small!!

Almost: that is for his 'low' schedule.  He's currently tracking above his high one, which doesn't give him much change from 300 miles per day in July.

I think it may prove harder to exceed the summer schedule than the winter one. But what do I know having never cycled more than 250 miles or so in a day and never having ridden 10,000 miles in a year let alone in less than two months.

10,000 miles in a year ?!?

Paff, I haven't done that mileage in three years.

The change in daily mileage will we gradual and smooth the curve, I'm sure. My point is that Steve has spent January and February warming up. I have no idea how anybody can do the sort of day's that are planned, but if he can do it .... we ain't seen nothin' yet!

Of course he did. It was mostly feckin' freezing that's why.
You're only as successful as your last 1200...

10 000 miles is a warmup? Steve must be an alien from another planet.

It's a pretty good warm up when July alone has 9000 miles!

Day 58: Third consecutive day riding over 220 miles for Kurt moves him even closer to WR pace and less than a day from his 10,000 milestone. Steve heads into Essex with a 195 miler. Nothing logged by William in a frosty Texas for the sixth time this month.

What average mph do we think Steve will achieve over the Summer? I know his schedule is for 270 mile days in July. He's going to have to up the pace to 18-19mph plus to fit this in day by day. Sure this is possible when he's reduced the load on the bike and ridden himself fitter.

Day 59: A comparative 'rest' day for Steve and Kurt today, with around 160 and 180 miles respectively. Steve endures yet more winter weather, but is helped by joining a peloton of Essex riders. Kurt breaks the 10,000 mile barrier five days after Steve. The two riders are now almost exactly 1,000 miles apart after two months' awheel.

Here are the tyreprints of the three riders as of end of February. All three maps are to the same scale - 600km along each side of the square. I perhaps do William a disservice by not including his California rides but they are no more extensive than his Texas ones shown here.

And their daily movement periods for the first two months (dark = moving; light = stationary)

After the end of the year these heatmaps would make great posters if printed up. Motivational poster to hang on your wall.  Or even a tea towel!

William's map puts the challenge into perspective. He has ridden 1,680 miles so far this year, which I suspect is further than many of us have managed. Yet in comparison to the other two riders, his is but a smudge on a blank canvas.

There may be a problem with Kurts mileage total. His Garmin connect site says 215 while Strava says 178. Alicia seems to think that 215 miles is the correct total and is looking for help to sort it out via Kurts FB page.

The 215 certainly fits better with what I saw on the tracker page at 01:00 this am.
