If you have six minutes to spare, here's an animation of Steve and Kurt's progress so far (both to the same scale).

Very good! I enjoyed that.

You do get a good idea of their respective speeds.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

That's wonderful!

(it reminded me of the time-lapse video of nuclear explosions, I don't know if that was deliberate...)

For no readily apparent reason I don't even see jo's link but pasting the url into a new tab works fine ???  Chrome under both Win 8.1 and iOS 8.something.

Chrome blocking 'unsafe scripts' on an https page. Click the little shield icon in the address bar and chose 'load unsafe script' and it should appear. It does for me (Chrome, Windows 8.1)

Day 78: More Natchez Trace for Kurt taking him down to Baton Rouge Louisiana and slowly towards the magic WR line. One puncture, some rain and a trashing of the 'bent's rear wheel when on the bike rack adds some variety to his 210 mile day. Steve takes a 202 mile route from MK to Cambridge via King's Lynn to keep him hovering around his upper schedule.

This is really good. It gives a real idea of just what these two have acheived so far. The full year version will be about an hour long.

This is mesmerising and really does give a sense of their different strategies. Nice work Jo!

Day 79: Kurt goes on a 222 mile tour of Louisiana towards New Orleans crossing the 14,000 miles mark. As the moon crosses the sun, Steve crosses his 15,000 mile total on his fenland tour back to MK.

Day 80: Steady progress from both Kurt and Steve, clocking up 221 and 215 miles respectively. Kurt does some beach loops NE of New Orleans while Steve follows a cold northerly wind from MK down to Dorset.

Just a thought, but will you be amending the OYTT chart to show our antipodean colleague once he starts?
Also I can't remember who created the marvellous tracker app but will this also be amended to show the new guy? (I would suggest removing Tin Boy).

Yes, I'll add Miles' progress once he starts. I'll also continue recording William's rides while he remains officially part of the HAM'R.

Day 81: Both Steve and Kurt each ride around one 'Godwin' of 206 miles. Kurt heading along the coast to Alabama, Steve returning home from Dorset. One more week left of a scheduled pace of 215 miles per day before things ramp up yet again.

AFAIK, Oz road distances are posted in km. Is it in the rules Miles will have to report in Statute miles?

Rule 15:Daily mileages shall be recorded to the nearest tenth or rounded down to the nearest mile

In practice, the participants record GPS data and post it publicly within 24 hours (rule 7),  and the UCMA will take the distance that Strava calculates from the GPS points, in miles and tenths.

Day 82: A day of longer rides - Kurt heads through Pensacola for 235 miles of riding back in Florida; Steve pedals some familiar roads between MK and King's Lynn in a 220 mile circuit.

Day 83: Kurt has a 211 mile "recovery ride" out of Florida into Mississippi, this time away from the coast to avoid traffic. Steve has fun visiting Marsh Gibbon 12 times during his 214 mile day.

Day 84: Another 210 miles each for Kurt and Steve keep them both on schedule. Kurt heads north, in and out of Louisiana. Steve takes a trip south down to Portsmouth.

Thanks again Jo  :thumbsup:

Looking at this I'm struck again by the impact of Kurts two short days and in general by the shear relentlessness of it.  I simply cannot comprehend that Steve plans to increase his mileage again shortly...

This visualisation helps keep it all in perspective, I fear I have come to accept the idea of 200mile back to back days as something close to normal - which it clearly is not!  I guess they have both been doing the equivalent of non stop back to back LELs.
