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

Jo

I've just zoomed in to the map on the garmin page and discovered that the ride actually starts in a small place in Arkansas which is actually called Alicia - so that may well explain the ride title.

I guess if your names Alicia its likely that you might go and visit it but in this case the coincidence has led to a bit of confusion - my apologies if this turns out to be the case.

Day 246 / 27: Arkansas cyclists rally round to help Kurt with his recent mechanical and health problems providing replacement components and some on-the-road company. Facing high daytime temperatures, he completes an impressive 221 miles keeping him marginally above Tommy's accumulated distance. Steve is also back on form completing a fenland figure of eight via Spalding for 215 miles. Nothing posted from Miles, which leaves him further behind the pace than Steve was at the end of his post-crash hospital recuperation.

Day 247 / 28: Kurt is back in the heat of Little Rock Arkansas doing repeats on local roads for a day's total of 216 miles. His bike problems seem to be sorted and breathing issues tolerable as he mixes upright with recumbent riding. Steve puts in a long day and late finish as he does a 220 mile loop of Cambridgeshire and Essex, continuing to pull away from January Steve. Miles does a couple of short Melbourne trips, only logging 9 miles of riding.

Day 248 / 29: Big miles from Kurt as he's back on the Little Rock hamster wheel doing 231 miles of local road repeats. Steve does a 195 mile Ely loop to maintain his lead over his January riding. Miles is back to the big rides with several bay trips for a 233 mile total.

Day 249 / 30: Kurt settles in to a pattern of two local rides per day, one in early morning and the other in the afternoon/evening, avoiding the worst of the Arkansas heat. This gives him 208 miles, placing him within a day of the 50,000 milestone. Steve, in better weather than recent days, rides north and south to Boston for 215 miles. Miles does a there-and-back again ride along the bay for 131 miles.

Day 250 / 31: The Arkansas high temperatures push Kurt's riding to the early morning and late evening along local roads. He passes the 50,000 milestone with a ride of 201 miles and remains ahead of Tommy's September 7th 1939 pace. Steve rides up to the Wash and back for 210 miles. Miles takes the train north to Shepparton and rides back to Melbourne for 112 miles.

Day 251 / 32: Big miles from Kurt – 244 of them on Little Rock roads. This puts him 629 miles in front of Tommy's WR pace and 97 miles ahead of Tommy's actual riding at this stage of the challenge. Steve continues his climb away from his January riding, completing 212 miles through Cambridgeshire and Essex. Miles does another bay ride for 127 miles.

Since Steve has now admitted that the schedule is out of the window, and since the graphs are showing that his progress since the reboot is better than the anticipated January/February mileage (hardly surprising), is it now time to lose the schedule curves from the graph?

They don't make much sense in the context of the reboot as they're assuming a different time of year, also.

On the full chart at http://gicentre.org/oytt/ - if you uncheck the "common start times" box then you can see the comparative progress in real time since the restart in August (if that's what you're after).  They look remarkable similar!

You can also uncheck 'schedules' if you don't wish to see Steve and Kurt's original published schedules.

Remember also that Steve is running two concurrent attempts, so while there is virtually no possibility that he could make the Tommy Godwin record in 2015, it is still instructive to see how an anticipated schedule differed from the reality.

Day 252 / 33: Both Kurt and Steve ride 220 miles – Kurt doing 20 repeats on a 11 mile stretch of local roads in Little Rock, Steve doing another Cambridgeshire/Essex loop. Their rides keep Kurt 57 miles ahead of Tommy's 243rd day total and pushes Steve further ahead of his February progress. Miles does another bay there-and-back for 135 miles.

300 miles beneath the Godwin line.  He needs 20 days like yesterday to get back up to matching it.  Tough times ahead.

Day 253 / 34: Kurt rides a slightly wider selection of roads from Little Rock than recent days giving him another 233 miles. Steve heads east to Sudbury than takes a Cambridgeshire route home for 206 miles. Nothing posted from Miles today.

Day 254 / 35: Kurt goes back to the hamster wheel – 20 repeats of a 10 mile stretch of road beside the Arkansas River giving him 208 miles for the day. Steve does another fenland loop for 209 miles bringing him a little closer to Kurt's February pace. Miles does the bay as a single there-and-back for 111 miles.

Here are the movement charts for the three riders. As before - dark bars represent time moving on the bike, 24 hours per row, January to September top to bottom.

Day 255 / 36: Kurt leaves some of his hamster wheel repeats to ride an extended loop down to Pine Bluff for a day's total of 221 miles. Steve heads northeast, and them some more east until there's no more (dry) east to ride, ending his 211 mile day just north of Lowestoft. Miles does several bay road trips for a total of 202 miles.

Day 256 / 37: Steve takes a 220 mile meandering journey back from the Norfolk coast to MK. He's now less than 300 miles behind Tommy's WR pace. Kurt says he's back on the "hamster wheel", but nothing posted on Strava as yet. Miles focuses on doing regular trips up and down the first 30 mile stretch of the bay road giving him a 171 mile total for the day.

Good to see the continued gradual upward trend from Steve. That seems to be what he is best at. Steady but sure.

KEEP GOING STEVE!

I am puzzled, jo. Your graphs show Kurt to be behind Tommy's average speed. I thought he had pulled ahead of it some time ago. What am I missing?
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.
