Here is some information about the HAM’R:
HAM’R stands for Highest Annual Mileage Record. This record attempt runs over the course of 365 consecutive days.
The current women’s world record was set in 1938 by Billie Fleming/Dovey with a total of 29,603.7 miles.
Drafting is allowed, so if needed, I can ride with other cyclists all throughout the year. Speed is not important for this record attempt; although the faster I ride the more miles I can log each day. I am allowed to take days off, so if any unforeseen circumstances arise I will not be penalized or disqualified. The records official will be monitoring me with a GPS tracker that I will have on my person at all times while I am riding.
During my HAM’R attempt I will be uploading each day’s ride from my Garmin to a website known as Strava (an online mileage log). I will then share a ride summary, showing each day’s mileage on my Facebook Athlete page for all to see.
