Day 28 (Amanda Coker) / Day 163 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 8 (Alicia Searvogel):

The high river and recent rain means that Amanda is the only current challenger who is having to deal with the hazard of alligators but survives the day uneaten with another 226 miles. Over the first four weeks she has accumulated over 6,300 miles and is 489 miles ahead of world record pace. Kajsa rides west over lumpy Swedish terrain for 86 miles leaving her 984 miles in front of Dovey pace. Alicia appears to have settled into a routine of two rides a day around Little Rock with the day's total weighing in at 107 miles.

Amanda is very close to Verne .75 pace - the equivalent of three quarters of the way around the world in 80 days.  :o

Day 29 (Amanda Coker) / Day 164 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 9 (Alicia Searvogel):

Friends and buzzards provide some distraction for Amanda on the same stretch of trails she has now ridden on for 6517 miles, 212 of which in the last day. Kajsa moves to the west coast of southern Sweden for a windy 91 miles. She is now one 89 mile ride away from equalling Billie Dovey's annual Eddington number and six 90 mile rides from exceeding it. Should she wish, she needs 34 centuries this year to accumulate 100 rides of 100 miles or more. Alicia rides the Little Rock river trail again for 115 miles and a total so far of 900.

Day 30 (Amanda Coker) / Day 165 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 10 (Alicia Searvogel):

One month of riding for Amanda and her ride of 235 miles takes her 500 miles ahead of world record pace. If she were to carry on at this rate she would have an annual total of around 82,000 miles smashing Kurt's record by 6000 miles. Kajsa rides 98 miles north on along the coast to Gothenburg. Her annual Eddington number (89) now equals that of Billy Dovey but achieved in less than 6 months. Alicia rides another 100 taking her to 1005 miles in 10 days.

Day 31 (Amanda Coker) / Day 166 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 11 (Alicia Searvogel):

231 miles from Amanda taking her average over the first month to just over 225 miles per day – quite a benchmark for any future challengers. Kajsa rides from Gothenburg to Onsala and back for 76 mile trip keeping her over 1000 miles ahead of Dovey pace. Alicia rides her recumbent along her usual routes for another 106 miles.

Day 32 (Amanda Coker) / Day 167 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 12 (Alicia Searvogel):

Amanda rides another 221 miles. It may be routine for her now, but riding this distance day after day has probably only been achieved by a handful of people. Ever. Kajsa eases off with 66 miles from Gothenburg in preparation for the 300km of Vätternrundan super-sportif. Alicia fits in three rides for a 126 mile total keeping her daily average above 100 miles.

When Steve and Kurt were battling it out 18 months ago I thought we were witnessing the extremes of human endurance on two wheels. So far, Amanda is a whole level above them. I do hope she can maintain it for another 11 months.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Day 33 (Amanda Coker) / Day 168 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 13 (Alicia Searvogel):

Another 228 miles for Amanda as she rides into her second month with the consistent high speed she has maintained throughout her challenge so far. No signs that she is tiring as she enters the phase of the challenge where body fatigue can start to show. Kajsa rides 41 miles around the north shore of Vättern heading towards Motala and the start of Vätternrundan with 20,000 other riders. Alicia adds another 101 miles to her total with 10 centuries in 13 days.

Day 34 (Amanda Coker) / Day 169 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 14 (Alicia Searvogel):

Amanda rides yet another 227 miles of Flatwood with no sign of letting up either distance or speed. Kajsa sets off at five in the evening on Vätternrundan riding 78 miles by midnight with another 118 to go to complete the 300km tour of Sweden's second largest lake. Two weeks in for Alicia and her pedal comes off (literally, not metaphorically) forcing her to finish the last 5 miles of her 99 mile day pedalling with one leg only.

Day 35 (Amanda Coker) / Day 170 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 15 (Alicia Searvogel):

Amanda puts 225 more miles in the HAMR bank. Kajsa completes Vätternrundan, 131 miles of which were between midnight and mid morning. Alicia has her furthest day yet with 131 miles on her usual roads.

Day 36 (Amanda Coker) / Day 171 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 16 (Alicia Searvogel):

One of her longer days for Amanda as she rides for 234 miles taking her average to 225.5 miles per day. Kajsa rides north from Motala for 62 miles. She is now a long way further north than any of the previous record challengers, but if you're going to ride that far north you might as well do it around the summer solstice. Alicia has three rides on her usual routes totalling 106 miles.

Another 231 miles for Amanda taking her 636 miles in front of Kurt's WR pace. Kajsa continues her Scandinavian migration north with a 112 mile ride to Gävle. Amanda reports another century ride although currently 67 miles logged on Strava.

Day 38 (Amanda Coker) / Day 173 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 18 (Alicia Searvogel):

For the longest day of the year for all the northern hemisphere riders Amanda rides another 230 miles. Alicia takes advantage of the 'Strawberry Moon' and does a nighttime century and then some to give her her longest ride yet at 133 miles. Kajsa rides ever northward along the east coast of Sweden. A bit of a tumble but no bones broken leaves her with 80 miles for the day.

Day 39 (Amanda Coker) / Day 174 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 19 (Alicia Searvogel):

223 more miles for Amanda takes her to just over 8800 miles in her first 39 days. Kajsa continues to head north along the Swedish coast, today for 92 miles. Alicia in an attempt to avoid the worst of the day's heat starts early, breaks midday and rounds off with an evening ride, all for a total of exactly 100 miles.

You don't need to, Jo... you should feel very free not to!

The straightness of Amanda's line so far is noticeable, apart from the blip around a tropical storm.  Perhaps that's because setting off in the summer months she has had less dark cold and wet to deal with, but more likely I am guessing that she is on top of things and riding within her capabilities.  Wow!

Day 49 (Amanda Coker) / Day 184 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 29 (Alicia Searvogel):

Over the last 10 days Kajsa has followed the northern coast of the Baltic from Sweden into Finland; ridden under the midnight sun; passed her half way mark in both distance and time; suffered saddle problems and OYTT blues but continues to stay ahead of both the Dovey line and her personal 50,000km target. Amanda continues strongly, passing 10,000 miles and keeping up an average of over 226 miles per day. Alicia keeps to her target of averaging a century a day now with 23 days out of 29 where she has ridden at least 100 miles.

Day 50 (Amanda Coker) / Day 185 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 30 (Alicia Searvogel):

Another 232 hot and humid miles for Amanda continues her consistent path towards a new world record. Kajsa rides southwest from Stockholm over lumpy and wet terrain for 80 miles taking her past 13,000 for the year. Alicia gets her riding in early to avoid the worst of the heat and clocks up another century.

Amanda is doing amazingly well. She seems to be finding mental fortitude through the sheer joy of putting the miles in.

Her daily distances seem so astonishingly consistent too - I guess that's a product of riding a consistent circuit.
