Results are calculated as follows:
Apart from veterans/ladies the average speed for each qualifying ride is calculated rounded to 3 decimal places. The overall average speed is calculated by adding the averages together and taking an overall simple average.
For veterans/ladies, the average speed is calculated as above. The average speed at the appropriate standard is then calculated for each distance and compared with the actual average speed to produce a ‘plus’ or ‘minus’ mph for each distance. These are then averaged to give an overall ‘plus’ or ‘minus’. A separate veterans on standard award is made for the veteran with the largest overall “plus” against standard over 10, 25 and 50 miles.
