In 1939 Tommy Godwin cycled a frankly mind boggling 75,065 miles, an average of 205 miles a day. In January 2015 two cyclists, Steve Abraham from the UK and Kurt Searvogel from the USA set out to break the record. However on the 29/3/15 Steve sustained a broken ankle after being ridden into by a moped. In reality the challenge was over for Steve that day, but he refused to give up at that time and after some rehabilitation he started again, it wasn't until 21/01/16 that he made an announcement that he was retiring from the challenge. Others started but soon fell by the wayside, leaving Kurt largely unchallenged except by the monumental task itself. On 09/01/16 Kurt finished his 365th day having ridden a frankly ludicrous 76,076 miles in a year beating Tommy by 1011 miles and pushing the average up to just over 208 miles a day, for a year. And then came Coker. 4 months after Kurt broke the record Amanda Coker started her attempt. 288 days in, 77 to go, she is riding just shy of 231 miles a day average, astonishing. Currently she is 6434 miles ahead of the world record pace and looks certain to smash the total that Kurt achieved. For Steve Abraham though it's unfinished business. On 04/03/17 he is starting again, having broken the month record in September 2016 riding 7104 miles in 30 days, just short of an average of 237 miles a day, he feels ready to take on the year record again. This time though he's likely to need an average of around 235 miles a day to take the record. Here's the link if you want to follow him on Strava Here's the link to his live tracker Here's the link to his Facebook The link to his 1YTT website is at the top of this post. We wish you all the best Steve, here's to no punctures, no mopeds, a wind at your back and perfect conditions for the next 12 months. GO STEVE!!!!!! Edit: Forgot to say, if you'd like to have browse through the thread for Kurt and Steve's attempt, HERE'S the link to the orginal CC thread. Edit edit: Should things change with Amanda I'll adjust the thread title and OP to suit.
