Forgive me if this has been raised before in this forum, but a search has yielded no results. Steve Abrahams, a noted Audax rider in the UK, is ten days into a one year time trial in the course of which he aims to break Tommy Godwin's record, set in 1939, for the most miles cycled in a calendar year - a mere 75,065.
Quite a ride. An average of more than 200 miles a day, every day. His strategy seems to be to start slow (not much more than 5000 miles in January) and crank up the mileage in the summer. I'll be following his progress via the linked website.
EDIT: apologies, I see that this has been referenced in the UMCA longest annual mileage thread. Still, I think so epic an attempt deserves a thread of its own.
