    I guess the 73K is 200 mile per day, so yes a significant figure to reach.

    I feel for him, so close but no cigar.

    It is just amazing how far he has cycled, 73,000 mile is just mind blowing, there will be plenty of long distance lorry drivers don't even manage that mileage in a year.

    Oooh. I'm due to be there with my 13yo for racing, providing it's on. Might have to bring 2 bikes :okay:

    Edit to the above - race cancelled due to snow, so I won't be there.

    On the up-side, Steve can start earlier round the bowl ...

    72500 miles in this country in all weathers. There are very, very few people in the world who could do that, it's an astonishing achievement and fully puts into perspective the immensity of Godwin's record.

    Can we organise a team of taxis to ferry him from the bottom of a long downhill to the top all day long? He should be able to beat the year record in a month then.

    A recent tweet from Steve says he's spending today - the last day of the attempt - in Wetherspoons in Milton Keynes.

    I imagine it is frighteningly high.

    Thanks @Dogtrousers
    A sad ending to an epic tale.
    The mileage distribution chart is the most telling. Too many rides beloww 200 mpd.
    I'm sure you have better things to do, but a similar chart for Kurt and Amanda would be interesting, my recollection is that they had much tighter deviation and almost never slipped below 200mpd.
  13. Interesting facts.

    • According to Strava (plus some fudgery) Steve burned 2,148,000 calories. If Steve were to have derived all of his energy for the year from sausages he would have needed a string of sausages 1.3km long.[1]*
    • According to Strava Steve was moving for 278,000 minutes. If he had a walkman with only the Ace of Spades on it, he could have listened to it 99,248 times.[2]
    • Steve has a total ascent of 468,034m. A stack of 2p coins that tall would be worth £4,611,270.20 [3]

    [1] Assuming 168 cal per 10cm sausage
    [2] It's 2 min 48 sec long.
    [3] Assuming 2.03mm thickness

    * I think that's also equivalent to a Camembert about 2m in diameter. But I got a bit confused and may have messed up the calculation.
