It's a pretty straightforward schedule which was based on his previous year record attempts and month record. Steve intends to ride for roughly 14-15 hours a day on average. He will be aiming to become a little bit faster during the first 4-5 months in order to keep on top of the increases of 5mpd each month until July.

Thereafter, it'll be a matter of hanging on to 240mpd for as long as possible. The weather is generally pretty favourable until November, so the daily average mileages have been set to taper down from November onwards.

We're not expecting everything to go exactly to schedule because of weather and any problems that may come up. Though it should give a rough idea of how things are going.
