Day 364 / 154 / 8: With only one more day to go for Kurt he rides north from the Keys past Miami, Fort Lauderdale towards West Palm Beach. He keeps his consistently fast pace despite over 75,000 miles in his legs ending the day with the world record advanced by another 211 miles. Steve's team publish a new riding schedule for 2016 that aims to deliver a 77,000 mile record in August. This involves immediately increasing his daily average to beyond 205 mpd. Things don't get off to a good start with the headwind from Yarmouth back to MK keeping his distance down to 185 miles. Kajsa has a better day and despite one puncture she completes her planned 100 miles of fenland riding taking her 88 miles ahead of Billie Dovey's pace. Bruce also has a good day joining team Astana on the road for a while and completing around 210 miles.

Day 365 / 155 / 9: After 365 days of riding without fail, including when barely able to stand with food poisoning, when having emergency heart monitoring, being knocked of his bike, numerous punctures,long dark nights of the soul and getting married, Kurt Searvogel clocks up a new world record of 76,076 miles.

Great summary Jo, and thanks for the work you have put in to help us keep track of this momentous achievement! 

That last chart says it all - it's like the printout from some life-support machine showing the dramatic ups and downs, and the constant struggle it takes just to keep near the target zone, let alone keep going at all.

And the horizontal line represents a daily Searvogel.  :thumbsup:

I have just been chatting to a cyclist on the train who was old enough to remember Tommy Godwin's record being made.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Am I correct?

1 Searvogel = 208.65

If my iPhone calculator is correct 76076/365 = 208.427 or 335.3km.  Mindboggling.  Checking my records I think I've managed a Searvogel on 28 occasions, that includes 3 x PBP, LEL, Mille Miglia, Mille Alba, 2 24 hour TTs (only one of those makes a Searvogel due to the middle of the day start and finsih), and 11xSR series.  That's not even enough for a February of Searvogels this year.

I believe as per https://teammooseisloose.wordpress.com/ the correct term is a "Tarzan".

From Wackypedia.

“the name Tarzan is claimed as a trademark of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc”

They’d better check this before putting Kurt’s nickname as an ‘official’ unit of measurement.

I meant the claimants in Larrington's Burroughs vs. Heseltine case would probably be referred to Arkel vs. Pressdram, not anyone on this good forum.

Jo, thanks for all you've done to illustrate this year's amazing athletes' efforts, and to bring it all alive.

A silver lining to today's bad news; less work for Jo, and the graphs are now a lot clearer!

Rather than dwell on what Steve hasn't achieved, I thought a bit of perspective might be helpful. He's ridden 108,000km since January 1st 2015.

Here's a map to scale:

What a wonderful visualisation. 

I know everyone else has said it, but thank you so much for all the work you have put in over the last year and a bit.  You made it so much easier for me to understand (or visualise) how the stories were unfolding. 
Every morning, sit down with coffee and read your 7 am ish post with graph and commentary.  What a ritual that became for me.

Thanks Jo.
