*Day 365 / 146: * Kurt has a fast and long day looping around Flatwood with friends. In so doing, he adds 227 miles to his total. He is now within a week of taking the record, or if he wants to take it easy, just 88 miles per day until Jan 9th.

Steve completes his year of cycling with a total of 63,565 miles – exactly 11,500 miles behind Tommy Godwin, or around 66 days of riding at his average pace. That places Steve third in the all-time list of annual distance records behind Tommy and Bernard Bennett, although shortly to be shunted down one position when Kurt completes his year on January 9th. Over the year, including his time off in hospital and recovery after his broken ankle, he has averaged 174.2 miles per day and has spent 51% of every hour of the year moving on his bike.
