    I finally got round to editing the second part (of three) of my challenge to make £1,000 from doing deliveries in London by bicycle in a single calendar week.

    It was over 1,100km of riding and 97 hours online - but did I make the £1,000? Find out in a couple of months when I get the final part edited lol.

    I need to think up a shape that will be grand enough to take a 400km+ ride to draw. 9 hours is not enough artistic sacrifice.

    Guys, just dusted off another silly challenge: Making £1,000 in a calendar week doing deliveries by bicycle.

    Rough stats:

    1,105km ridden.
    94 hours working.
    209 deliveries done.
    Biggest day: 174km & 15 hours online.
    £1,055 made.
    Fixed gear.
    UberEats & Stuart.

    It was a close one. All came down to the last 5-6 hours on Sunday night to break the 1000 barrier and then I had to do more on top just to seal the deal and have my mind at ease for when the pay statements come in on Tuesday evening. I had to treat this a lot like an ultra race, especially near the beginning. Did not stop moving. Only ate when I ended up near a suitable shop and was waiting for a pick-up. It was pretty much non-stop with only two distinct periods throughout the week where there was a ~1 hour gap between requests. Got home at night, cooked, ate, relaxed for about 30 minutes then went to sleep with a short sleep. I could 'chill' a bit more towards the end due to higher bonuses and more requests for the weekend - although I kinda wish I had maybe gone a little bit harder to avoid stress of possibly failing in the final hours. Mainly worked from midday until 1am-ish. Nuts week!

    More confirmed details and videos coming soon!

    Here's the heat map of the week. Sorry about the straight lines... believe me, they cause me huge physical pain.

    Glad you liked it! Took me yonks to edit! Yeah, it was actually wet for the last 6 or so hours and I definitely didn't take enough clothes with me. Great finish to test the mental determination though. :D
