It's been a while (real life and all that). But here is the latest from our 2016 riders. Amanda is sufficiently far ahead now that she needs a separate chart...

Thanks Jo, as beautiful and welcome as ever!

And I second that. Can't imagine the time it took to create this, and then on top of that, to keep it updated. Thank you!

Day 83 (Amanda Coker) / Day 218 (Kajsa Tylen) / Day 63 (Alicia Searvogel):

Kajsa, after being back in the UK for a couple of weeks has been riding consistently around 85-100 miles per day building up a good buffer for her 50,000km target. Amanda has been slowly increasing her weekly total and now has passed Kajsa's annual distance so far. She has currently ridden 18,937 miles compared with Kajsa's 18,839. Alicia continues to knock out 100 miles per day in Little Rock but is shortly due to move her riding up to Wisconsin.

Thanks Jo!

Still my first point of call when coming on the forum. You're graphics and summaries are, as always, much appreciated.

Day 87 (Amanda Coker) / Day 222 (Kajsa Tylen) / Day 67 (Alicia Searvogel):

Kajsa keeps edging away from the Dovey line, currently 1194 miles ahead and with three centuries in the last five days. She should hit the 20,000 milestone in 9-10 days' time. Alicia has now moved to Wisconsin for her rides, as Kurt did in the hotter months. She maintains her consistent 100 miles per day target and is 1355 miles above the Dovey line.

Amanda has ridden at least 230 miles every day in the last 16 days, ever increasing her daily average. She should pass the 20,000 milestone tomorrow. Barring significant incidents (and bear in mind we have not yet hit Florida's peak hurricane season yet), I predict she will take the world record distance at least a full month before her year is up. Her average to date would see her pass Kurt around 13th April 2017 (32 days ahead) and achieve a total of about 83,350 miles. Her more recent average, which is around 233 miles per day, would see her pass Kurt on 8th April (37 days ahead) and hit a year's total of about 84,600 miles.

I certainly don't want to minimize what Amanda is doing now, but we have to accept that all record candidates until now have done shorter rides in January/February. Amanda has not yet passed through this difficult period of the year.Having said that, I wish her all the best!

Surely she's going to move elsewhere for the rainy (rainier) season?

Day 89 (Amanda Coker) / Day 224 (Kajsa Tylen) / Day 69 (Alicia Searvogel):

Kajsa has ridden a 98 and 85 miler in the last couple of days which puts her 1215 miles above the Dovey line – the furthest she has been ahead of Billie since she started. Only around 620 miles (lest than one PBP) to go until she passes 20,000. Alicia is building up a buffer over her target of 100 mpd and just reaches the 7000 milestone at the end of her ride along the western edge of Lake Michigan.
Amanda has been having some wet and windy weather of late but puts the previous day's storm behind her to complete another 230 mile day. It is notable that when her rides are disrupted by major weather events, she loses less distance than the setbacks that have affected other riders.

Day 112 (Amanda Coker) / Day 247 (Kajsa Tylen) / Day 92 (Alicia Searvogel)

I wonder if NOAA have considered using Amanda as monitor of Florida extreme weather. Here's here progress to date. The unnamed tropical weather event around August 10th could be regarded as a Perfect Storm as it coincided with Amanda celebrating 20,000 miles.



Meanwhile Kajsa continues to make good progress with three centuries in the last three days. Alicia is well above the Dovey line but has struggled a little recently with a leg injury and travels away from Little Rock so is just behind her personal 100mpd target.

Day 114 (Amanda Coker) / Day 249 (Kajsa Tylen) / Day 94 (Alicia Searvogel) / Day 5 (Steve Abraham Month Record)

Big miles September. Kajsa and Alicia aim for at least 100mpd, Steve goes for the month record and Amanda continues her relentless push for a new world record. Kajsa squeezes in an interview with East Midlands Today between 100 miles from Grantham. Steve adds another 238 miles on a Fenland loop taking him 86 miles ahead of target. Alicia recovering from her leg injury still manages 102 Little Rock miles and Amanda does what Amanda does with another 241 miles of her Florida loops.

Day 119 (Amanda Coker) / Day 254 (Kajsa Tylen) / Day 99 (Alicia Searvogel) / Day 10 (Steve Abraham Month Record)

Amanda keeps going with her 7th consecutive day of 240+ miles (is she perhaps sending a message to Steve and his month challenge?). Kajsa has been heading SW in the last few days riding in Gloucestershire with some YACFers. She dipped a little below 100 miles on one day but otherwise has managed 9 centuries in the first 10 days of September. Alicia has been going though a bit of a tougher time with a ongoing aches in her quads and some fatigue. Perhaps the same 100 day blues that also affected Kajsa earlier in the year. Steve is half way though the Flatlands 600 audax and is currently around 64 miles ahead of his month challenge target of 233mpd.

It's hurricane season where she is riding and she's had to take one 'rest' day of 50 miles due to weather. I suspect she is banking extra miles on every day of good weather when her body is feeling up to it.

MrCharly, you may be right. I am sure that all riders think about banking miles when the going is good to make up for those rainy days. However, I know Amanda is well aware of Steve's month challenge and I was conscious that she does seem to have switched from averaging just below Steve's target to just above it since he started on September 2nd (Steve's target of 233 miles per day in red, Amanda's daily mileage in purple):

It looks like Amanda has a healthy amount of competitiveness in her which is unhelpful for other contenders.
