I heard of Tommy Godwin's "Year Record" back in 2006
A post on the Mersey Roads 24hr thread on tritalk.co.uk
reminded me about it and the Dave Barter at phased.co.uk now shows you daily updates on where Tommy would've been during his attempt
For example: "On Sunday 29th January 1939 Tommy Godwin rode a total mileage of 109 miles bringing his year total to date to 4,447 miles."
You can also receive a daily tweet of the mileage ridden by Tommy Godwin by following the Twitter account @yearrecord
