The HAM'r website appears to be missing a couple of Kurt days, but if your visualisation is right then Tarzan should be under 200 miles a day to reach the record.

Day 233 / 14: Kurt sticks to the lakes of NE Wisconsin for 222 miles of riding. Steve does a couple of post-PBP loops from Dieppe giving him 159 miles for the day and taking his reboot pace back down to Godwin's average. Miles rides north of Melbourne for 145 miles, presumably with a fixed bottom bracket.

Day 234 / 15: Kurt rides 218 miles north through central Wisconsin. Steve does 217 miles in a long day after disembarking the ferry at Newhaven, travelling back to Milton Keynes via Hungerford (Tutti Pole?). Miles heads back to riding the bay for 136 miles.

Good stuff Jo!  I notice that on the full chart if you uncheck the "common start times" box it now shows Steve's current progress duplicated  - a continuation of the Jan 1st attempt and also the concurrent August re-start in real time.  Very cool - gives a great comparison of effort.

I also notice you've quietly dropped "Iron Ox" off the chart - quite right  ;)  Talk about a waste of statistical space!

Yes.  I can't remember who created the excellent YearRecordTracker app, but it would be nice if he got dropped from there too.  Maybe to be replaced by SG2 or Miles.

For info though, IronOx did a 40 mile ride yesterday, bringing his annual total to 2,629 miles. I would have thought a good number of YACF members have ridden more than that this year.

No.  Only 2392, but hopefully overtaking him soon.

Yup, a low mileage year with 3 months having only a handful of rides each & I've still ridden more than that...

Day 235 / 16: Kurt rides 213 miles east to Manitowoc. Steve rides slowly and only for 30 miles so takes the opportunity for a post-PBP recovery. This puts him 56 miles behind Kurt after the first 16 days. Miles puts in 188 miles along the bay.

Loads will have I would have thought, I'm on 3,455 miles which is a little less than this time last year which was my best year since I kept keeping records (2009).

IronOx would have done better if he'd just followed me to and from work....

 if you look at the  UMCA rules then you realise how " odd" they are -- if I was a member and had paid an entry fee -- then I would be heading now towards being the 70/75 World record holder for annual mileage.

Similarly I could be the 70/75 male  World Champion under their rules for riding  just the odd qualifying event. Current 70/75 world champ rode 2 24 hour events only , riding 301 and 156 miles.

All the UMCA World Champions should be regarded as a very curious sub set of cyclists.

Day 236 / 17: Kurt follows the wind from east to west for most of the day with a moving average approaching 20mph and a total of 218 miles. Steve, still suffering with a post-PBP cold keeps it shorter (by the standards of the OYTT) and slow for 130 miles. Miles sticks to the bay for 172 miles.

Thank you very much, for producing these graphs - they provide very informative and interesting viewing every morning over breakfast.

Watching Steve's restart on the graphs further up this page, the whole process of attempting this record seems akin to desperately trying to bail out a sinking boat. The effect that just one missed, or 'low-mileage' day is very disheartening!

Day 237 / 18: Kurt takes it comparatively easy in windy conditions with more stops and shorter day giving him a total of 142 miles. Steve, while still recovering from his cold, begins to increase his speed and distance with a 144 mile Cambridgeshire loop. This puts him just 20 miles ahead of 'January Steve' by day 18. Miles does a couple of bay rides for 129 miles. He is now 4,100 miles behind Tommy's WR pace.

Day 238 / 19: Kurt rides to Manitowoc for 210 miles. Steve continues to recover from illness with a 162 mile loop via Peterborough putting him marginally ahead of his January self but 267 miles behind Kurt's first 19 days. Miles does the bay with some diversions for 163 miles. As we edge towards the end of a northern hemisphere summer and Australian winter, we may be seeing the beginnings of a convergence in daily distances.

Day 239 / 20: Kurt, feeling the OYTT blues, sticks to the Fort Atkinson region and so far has only posted a ride of 74 miles. Steve continues with his recovery from his post-PBP cold and does another Cambridgeshire loop via Peterborough for 193 miles, creeping ahead of January Steve. Miles does a there-and-back-again trip along the bay for 107 miles.

Day 240 / 21: Kurt heads west following the Wisconsin River but runs out of ridable roads and weather so quits the day with 149 miles of riding. Steve heads NE with the blustery wind for 202 miles and ends up at a Norwich Travelodge rather than face a long journey back into the wind. His summer pace keeps him comfortably ahead of January Steve. Nothing posted from Miles today.

Day 241 / 22: Kurt begins the long migration south from Wisconsin towards home at Little Rock Arkansas with 210 miles for the day. In his slightly less glamorous homeward road trip Steve heads back from a Norwich Travelodge to Milton Keynes with a couple of extra loops thrown in via Northampton and Buckingham giving him 201 miles. A second day from Miles with no riding posted. On this day in 1939, Tommy passed 50,000 miles.

Day 242 / 23: Kurt continues his migration back towards Little Rock, but because of dental problems for Alicia, takes a circuitous 195 mile route via Decatur and Bloomington, Illinois. Steve passes the 40,000 milestone on another 204 mile fenland loop via Ely. Still nothing from Miles.

Day 243 / 24: Two rides from Kurt in Illinois and Missouri leave him south of St Louis with a 155 mile total by the end of the day. Steve, on a wet, wet, wet day, rides an enlarged loop around Cambridge for 201 miles. No ride from Miles for the fourth consecutive day.

Day 244 / 25: Kurt rides an impressive 212 miles back to Little Rock while plagued by mechanical problems including a written off derailleur on one bike, trashed rims on another after it comes loose on the bike carrier and broken bars on the third bike.  Steve does another fenland loop of 203 miles, reporting that he has still not fully recovered from his post-PBP illness. Despite this, his recent consistency sees him increasing his gap over January Steve. After a four day gap Miles is back on the road with 101 miles of bay riding.

Day 245 / 26: Kurt, now back at home in Little Rock Arkansas, has to spend half the day assembling a fourth emergency bike while sourcing parts for his three broken bikes. He spends the other half riding local roads for 108 miles. Steve does a 220 mile Cambridgeshire and Essex loop in better weather than previous days reporting he is now recovering well from illness. Miles does 132 miles of bay riding.

Hi Jo

Kurt appears to have posted a total of 5 rides on Strava on Tuesday (Day 235) totalling 212 miles however if you look at his Garmin pages one of the rides is titled 'Alicia Cycling'.

https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/885537550

Distance for this ride is 31.1km/19.3 miles

This would suggest that one of the rides was actually done by Alicia ?

I'm sure when the official stats get updated all will become clear, in the meantime I hope this helps with the great job you are doing.

Thanks for pointing this out. I've just posted a query on Kurt's Strava post to see if we can get clarification.
