Ooo. That is neat. Any chance of including the moon in the image ?

The moon is 384,400 km away. It would be way off the right of your monitor at that scale.

Put another way, Steve cycled more than one quarter of the way to Luna...

Superb, jo. All we need is another Kurt, another Steve and someone to fetch the Baton from Dunnett Head and it can go to the moon. :smug:

It's okay, I've cunningly got another monitor...  I estimate that puts the moon somewhere in the vicinity of the nicklist of my IRC window, and about twice the diameter of one of the chanops' '@'s.

Another vote of thanks Jo!

I noticed earlier that http://gicentre.org/oytt/ seems to be down for me atm. Is this permanent or temporary?

Thanks!

The OYTT site being down is just temporary. I am told the web server elves are busy trying to sort it out.

In the mean time you can see it via a different page: http://staff.city.ac.uk/~jwo/oytt


ETA: http://gicentre.org/oytt is now back up and running.

I will continue to keep it up to date though the year, but will probably be posting on this thread infrequently.

Update as of Feb 2nd: Both Kajsa and Bruce have made promising starts after a month of riding.

Kajsa has kept up an average of 88.5 miles per day and 1.0 entertaining video blogs per day. Strong winds in the last few days have lowered her average a little but she is currently 245 miles above the Dovey line with probably the worst month of weather behind her.



Bruce had been climbing steadily above the 'Searvogel line' for most of January, typically riding around 210 miles per day.  Knee problems, a bit of fatigue and worsening weather have meant he has lost most of his gains in the last few days, but at 6792 miles in 33 days he remains within 100 miles of Kurt's record pace.

Update as of Sunday February 7th:

A tough week for Kajsa as she sees off a cold while continuing to battle with windy conditions. Over the weekend she has headed SW to Gloucester and the Severn for the first time and spent some time riding in the company of Steve Abraham who'd ridden over from Milton Keynes to join her. She is currently about 230 miles up on Billie Dovey's pace and about 490 miles down on a 100mpd pace.



Bruce has had a particularly difficult week, dealing with knee problems, a day without riding and a slow recovery while doubts remain about the official status of his record challenge. A few days of low mileage leaves him over 700 miles behind Kurt's record pace.



(for comparison, Steve's August restart is shown as the thick red line, his January 2015 start the thinner line)

Day 48. It has not been an easy couple of weeks for Kajsa with cold and wet winter days, a change in the rules from Guinness and tired legs that have required a visit from the physio. In the last week she has averaged around 72 mpd but despite her trials she remains well up on Billie's pace - around 197 miles above the Dovey line.

Day 69: Kajsa has been making good progress in the last three weeks as the days get longer and the wind begins to drop. 33 century rides so far including 15 in the last 16 days. She has ridden around 6100 miles so far, averaging just over 88 miles per day.

I've been a bit neglectful in visualizing Kaja's progress in the challenge. As of Day 98 she's ridden (i) further than the diameter of the earth (by nearly 900 miles); (ii) 41 imperial centuries; (iii) further than all the 21st century OYTT challengers bar Kurt and Steve (that's IronOx, Miles and Bruce).



Here's her heatmap so far

(and a higher resolution version).

Brill, jo! I hope her current physical woes end soon and allow her to resume the upward trend.

Can I post your words to her facebook page? They are remarkable stats and might give her a lift.

Sure. She might like the heatmap link too.

When I get some time I will update the gicentre.org/oytt page to scale the chart by default to show her and Billie's progress.

Hi Jo,

Just wondering whether you've decided to stop updating the visualisation permanently?

Thanks,

David

No - I haven't given up. Things have just been very busy. I'm downloading Kajsa's last month of rides and will post something here shortly...

Kajsa started April with a couple of weeks of recovery riding to deal with ongoing leg issues, but then started to build up the miles again with six centuries in the last two weeks and the 10,000 milestone passed. She remains well above the Dovey line with the prospect of longer days and improved weather ahead.

Here's Kajsa's heatmap up to May 1st. Since last month she has extended further north and into north Norfolk.


(and the full sized image)

Interesting to see how little her routes have crossed with Steve's. I guess in part because she is happier to do hilly routes that Steve was during his OYTT.


(and the full sized image)

And here's Kajsa's movement chart for the first four months, with daylight/darkness shown. With a target of closer to 80mpd, she has been able to avoid riding in darkness for most of the year.

Here are the OYTT Eddington numbers including Kajsa up to 3rd May. With an E=80, she should overtake Billie Dovey's E=89 in the next couple of months.
