One of the best features of Veloviewer is the explorer score. Essentially, the map is split into a grid of tiles, and if any of your activities cross into a tile then it gets a tick. Since starting recording rides and runs in 2013, I have ticked off a total of 2141 tiles. In 2018, I covered 762 tiles, and 418 of these were “new” tiles. This image below shows the the tiles which I have covered so far.
In 2019 I’d like to cover more than 418 new tiles. We have a couple of big trips lined up, including cycling to North West Wales, and a week exploring Devon.
I’d also like to expand my max cluster. This is represented by the blue tiles, and in 2018 I had a max cluster of 164. In order to expand it, I aim to link up Kirby Lonsdale, Settle and Grasmere.
Finally, the black squares in the image relate to the maximum square you have covered. So far I have a max square of 7x7. Increasing this is quite difficult due to being near the sea, however, I think I can increase this to 8x8.
I’ll provide monthy updates on our tile explorations to track how we’re getting on.
