Day 152: Flooding continues to keep Kurt up and down a small segment of the roads for 230 miles. Steve has a relatively easy 140 mile day with a couple of Marsh Gibbon visits thrown in for good measure.

Day 153: 233 more miles of repeats along the same 5 mile stretch of road for Kurt. He's now about a day away from matching Billie Fleming's record. Steve puts in a long day to Lowestoft adding 252 miles to his total.

Day 154: Repeated trips along the five mile strip of the Arkansas river trail gives Kurt 245 miles for the day and takes him beyond Billie Fleming's 1938 record. Steve returns from Lowestoft for a 212 mile total.

Day 155: Kurt does more Arkansas river repeats but then escapes for a bit of hill climbing to Wye giving him 215 miles for the day. Steve has a hospital visit sandwiched between 191 miles of local riding.

Day 156: Kurt reaches the 30,000 milestone with more hamster wheel riding by the river. Steve heads north for 206 miles to Alfreton in readiness for the weekend's Nine Counties 600km audax.

Day 157: Kurt starts the day racing in the Tour de Rock before returning to the back and forth on the river trail for a day's total of 222 miles. Steve rides the first part of the Nine Counties audax through Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire (have I missed any?) for a tidy 233 miles.

Day 158: Steve completes his 600km Audax with a few extra diversions added to give him a 205 mile day. Kurt continues on his 'hamster wheel' on the river trail with a small hilly diversion at the start of the day for a bit of variety. With another 228 miles for the day, he's now within a week of hitting Tommy's WR annual pace.

Day 159: Steve makes is return trip from Alfreton to MK, taking the long way round via the Humber to give him 250 miles for the day. He appears to have 'bottomed out' and begins the slog back to WR pace. He'll need to ride at least 246 miles every day to do this by the end of the 2015. Kurt continues to push the hamster wheel for 209 miles.

Day 160: 216 more hamster wheel miles for Kurt. Steve does a shorter than usual loop towards Cambridge for 153 miles.

Day 161: After 222 more miles on the Arkansas hamster wheel, Kurt is now closer to Tommy's WR pace than he has been since the first few days of the challenge. Steve does a 205 mile loop through Cambridgeshire and Essex. It looks increasingly unlikely that he would be able to beat Tommy's total in 2015, now requiring an average of over 246 miles per day for the remains of the year.

Day 162: As the temperature rises in Little Rock, Kurt starts riding northward. GPS problems leave him with only 75 miles logged despite a 213 mile ride. Steve puts in a long day with an early start and late finish giving him 280 miles for his East Anglian loop. This takes his annual total above 25,000 miles.

Day 163: Chased by the heat Kurt continues his great migration north, 231 miles through Missouri, crossing the Mississippi into Illinois. Steve sticks to Buckinghamshire loops for 182 miles and 4 Marsh Gibbons.

Comparing the riders' statistics on the official spreadsheet is interesting. Despite Steve's 229 miles today, he has fallen a further 10 miles or so behind Tommy. However, the past 20 days have seen him reduce his mph deficit from -2.58 to -2.23. Of course, the further Steve goes, the less beneficial effect each better-than-average day will have on his overall mph.

In raw mileage terms, Steve has another 50136 miles to do to beat Tommy and 201 days in which to do it. 250 mpd. Piece of piss.

Day 164: Kurt continues to head north towards the great lakes. A long day takes him to Ottawa, IL and 246 miles closer to the record. Steve does a fenland loop via King's Lynn for 229 miles. He has averaged the WR pace of 206 miles per day over the last 23 days but would need to increase this considerably in order to catch up from his current 8,266 mile deficit.

Day 165: Kurt pedals 203 miles further north into Wisconsin where temperatures are a pleasant 27 degrees. Steve does another fenland loop via King' Lynn for 207 miles.

Day 166: Kurt rides into northern Wisconsin leaving the heat behind but now dealing with "rain in every direction". He still manages 204 miles though. Steve matches his previous day's riding exactly at 207 miles with another fenland trip, this time via Ely. He declares publicly that he's still aiming for Godwin's record with planned increases in daily milage throughout July and August.

Day 167: Steve increases his average speed and distance covered with a 257 mile loop via King's Lynn. He now shows a clear upward trend during June. Kurt heads to Manitowoc on Lake Michigan for 231 miles.

Just wondering that if Steve keeps to the required ~247mpd, whether he will cross the X-axis/zero/WR pace of the OYTT chart around mid Sept-October?   i.e. what the projected shape of Steve's curve will be...

If he sticks to the required daily rate of approx 247 he will touch the x axis at 11.59 pm on Dec 31st

Day 168: Kurt rides 216 miles into the Wisconsin prairies. Another wide loop around Cambridge for Steve gives him 190 miles for the day. It looks like he is interleaving shorter and longer rides as he builds up his daily distances.

Day 169: Miles reenters the challenge with a couple of Port Phillip bay trips for a 184 mile midwinter start. Lots of riding for Steve who extends his King's Lynn loop via Sleaford to give him 261 miles for the day. Kurt does 221 miles of loops from Plover, Wisconsin.

Day 170: For day two of his OYTT reboot, Miles does a single there-and-back-again trip along Port Phillip Bay for 131 miles. Kurt heads SW from Plover ending in the hills for a 211 mile day. Steve loops up to Spalding adding 200 miles to his annual total.
