Day 60: As we enter the third month, both riders will need to start increasing their daily mileage. Steve's schedule suggests he will start riding above the 205 miles per day WR pace moving upward on the OYTT chart.

Looks like the UMCA have joined the graph game.

No mention of Gibbon visits though?

I see they've included the required run-rate, which is useful to know. I'm surprised they put the daily climb in.

I imagine there is a Marsh Gibbon _somewhere_ in the US, but unless Florida and Texas have one, I can see why UMCA might not be counting such things.

If you disagree I suggest you lodge an appeal direct.

I thought that Tarzan was 50 at the start of this ride, yet now it has him as being 52. No wonder he's covering so many miles.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

He's 51, but the UMCA uses your age at the end of the current year for age group standings.

Day 61: 213 miles from Kurt keeps him in touch with Tommy's WR pace. 195 miles from Steve in a bitingly cold wind sees him above his upper schedule but shrinking his buffer slightly. William is now over 10,000 miles behind the WR pace.

Day 62: Similar to the previous couple of days, 215 miles for Kurt and 194 for Steve. Kurt is gradually increasing the length of his riding days with both riders now finishing at around 8:30pm.

Day 63: Another similar day from Kurt and Steve with a 20 mile difference between their day's totals. Daylight hours are lengthening and weather is getting warmer for both riders so we might expect distances to increase soon.

I note that the slope of Steve's actual mileage is about intersect with the upper schedule line, which is on an upward trend, does this mean Steve may be upping his average daily miles total very soon?   (sorry if this has been said already).

That was my predication in this morning's post, but who knows?

Well, perhaps Steve does as he had a bit of an early start today and has done more than 90 miles before 11am.

He needs to cover more ground now and he needs to get a bit quicker on the road. There is limited oportunity for him to reduce time off the bike.

this challenge is like going up the never ending down escalator - you keep running up all day and every time you stop or go to sleep it takes you back down, no mercy, no pause, 205 miles next day, again and again. you need to be walking up quite fast just to stay in the same place..

massive respect to both riders!

GO STEVE!

I looked at the graph but not what you'd written...  :)  :-\  yes, ramping up can't be too far away now... 

GO Steve!

Day 64: Steve makes an early start and pulls a 217 mile day towards the WR pace. Kurt heads to the north of Florida with 203 miles. Another day of no riding from William.

Day 65: Another 220+ mile day for Kurt heading west in northern Florida brings him closer to WR pace. Steve's 196 mile day in Essex keeps him a little above his upper schedule. A third consecutive day of no riding for William.

At this rate, Kurt will pop back above Godwin's average by the end of the month.

It's difficult to tell, but is Steve's recent trend above or below the pace/gradient of his pessimistic schedule?

Easy to see on the whole graph - http://gicentre.org/oytt/

The optimistic schedule sees him ramping up miles significantly as from around now (which is why that line is moving towards him), the bottom schedule sees him ramping up the miles in about a month .

Day 66: Kurt heads west and makes it out of Florida for the first time with another 210+ mile day. Steve gets his kicks on route Essex, joining the Horsepower 200 Audax. Plenty of sun and wind. No-show for William again.

Day 67:  Around 200 miles each for Kurt and Steve. Kurt enjoyed Florida's panhandle while Steve took a circuitous route from Essex back to Milton Keynes.

Day 68: Kurt makes a dash for the state border and finds himself in Alabama after 214 miles. Steve has a 220 mile wind assisted day to York tailed by an evening of headwind.

Day 69: In a reversal of the pattern of the last couple of months, Kurt makes a 195 mile journey through Alabama with 1900m of climbing while Steve's 222 mile return from York to MK sticks to the flatlands with less than 1000m of ascent.
