EXCEL Ride Planner (2021) An Excel Ride Planner is available for download (a modified version of the PBP 2011 planner by 'tim-moon-feldman'). To predict your arrival times at Controls, input expected stage speed to the next Control, input expected time off bike between Controls, and input expected Layover time at each Control. Instructions are provided in the Excel Planner download. Modifications of the planner could even be made on-the-fly with an appropriate phone app. The Excel file is unlocked, modify with caution. TdT Ride Planner 2021 v5 (51kB) Below are two screenshots (select an image to enlarge) as an example from the Excel ride planner and corresponding chart of a planned scenario by a rider. Note: the yellow, orange and red cells are time warnings. Even though the rider can complete 1200km within 90 hours, they failed to arrive at the Derwent Bridge Control at or before 9.45am, and had in fact arrived 9.49am, only 4 minutes late! Also note the time warnings for Orford (yellow), Westbury (orange) and Great Lake (yellow). Enter (in the white-space) your expected stage speeds between CPs, times off the bike at CPs and layover times at overnight controls, these entries occur in the cells with white space - this will give you an idea of what times you might achieve assuming all goes well! These rider inputs can be adjusted on-the-fly using a mobile phone app.
