Maria Parker’s World Record Quest ~ 10/10

Maria rode her Cruzbike Silvio [her “Yellow Bike“] & her husband’s Black Silvio. They are movable bottom bracket recumbents, with front wheel drive. She is looking to ride a longer distance on her ‘bent than any other woman has in a 12-hour time period, where the ride was a Ultramarathon Cycling Association (UMCA) sanctioned event. The best to Maria and her team.

In addition to lap metrics, I’ll post pictures & videos to my flickr photostream. To the degree I can, I’ll post articles about the event. Check this site for the most current info on Maria’s ride.

  1. Added average speed to spreadsheet in mph & km/h, as well as a column for lap distance in kilometers–make the formulas easier for a one-time spreadsheet. Thanks to Nanc of BROL for the idea.–jim

    1. Hi John, I’ll have to review later. I rounded to the nearest 100th. I think the unofficial metrics are very close to the official. Let me know if you stille see a problem. –jim

  2. Jim, I have to tell you how much I appreciate all the stuff you do for us recumbent/ trike people. You truly are an asset for us. I can only imagine the effort that you and ever person connected to you puts in to get this together. Thanks to all Mike Hinnen from Kansas

  3. Excellent photo, Jim. I’m enjoying the pics of the yellow bike because yellow shows more of the frame shape and form. Nice work.

  4. Amazing Maria!!! Sending thoughts of encouragement from Vermont. Lauris says to stay hydrated & keep eating. If you start to cramp, eat a couple of Tums. Don’t Bonk!!!

    1. Thank you Pat!

      I think we will make it weather wise. We had a shower, followed by drizzles. It is now cooler. I posted a weather update–now 50% chance of rain. Three laps and a bit to go. –jim

  5. As I write this, it is 5:35 PM EST, and by now, Maria has surely ridden over 220 miles which is what she projected for her record attempt. If I’m correct, she has 1 more lap to go which is going to place her VERY CLOSE to the MEN’S 12 hour recumbent record! Amazing! GO MARIA!!!!

    1. Hi Edward,

      She is now on Lap #12, and if on pace, will have 4 minutes to cover another mile or so. A TERRIFIC ride she has had. I’ll upload a hill series in just a few minutes. She may face that hill one more time. GO MARIA!!!

      1. Hi Jim,

        I bet it’s been an exciting day for all of you! If Maria does keep the pace, she may very well go beyond 240 miles!

        If you can, please try to take pictures of the moment when she gets off her Silvio. Perfect moment to play that music piece from the “Rocky” movies! I know I’m being corny:)

        Thanks again for your dedication to this event!

        GO MARIA!!!!
