Guys, just dusted off another silly challenge: Making £1,000 in a calendar week doing deliveries by bicycle.
94 hours working.
209 deliveries done.
Biggest day: 174km & 15 hours online.
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!

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