    Thanks for publishing Biker on a Hill! This is the most creative item I have seen in a long time!

    Well done.

    Credits also go to the manager Marc B. for imagining such a presentation and my colleague “B-art in XL” for making this chart working in Excel with me.
    I am your guide to excel, while ET phones home. Now you can guess my real name. And no, my family name is not excel.
    Thank you Chandoo for picking up the idea and making a professional version of it. Ours was slightly different, but same techniques were used: pictures in the chart and offset. We used an area chart in combination with 2 invisible line charts in which we only show the markers (biker and target), both move thanks to the magic of NA().

    Hi Chandoo, I too want to thank you for making a blog of our “Biker on a hill” chart. Grah and I got triggered by our manager Marc B. and Marc deserves as well credits of the idea. Meanwhile we played a bit more and now we have a biker – spaceshutlle version… Once the team has met the dailly target, the bikers changes to a spaceshuttle, that takes off vertically and then turns 30° to “fly to the moon”.
