I don’t set out on rides to beat my current Eddington Number. But I do know exactly what it is.
Today was no exception. Out early in the morning for a ride.
To the furthest commuter train station from the city centre.
Then feet up on the ninety-minute train ride home.
And a ride from the station back to our cars. Mark and I had ridden further than we had anticipated. A quick mental calculation. I was 3km short of my Eddington Number.
It was 11.30am. Getting too hot to do anything about it right away.
But I was on my bike this evening. Now I have only 5 more days of riding at least 1 kilometre further than my current Eddington Number to bump it up one notch.
You know how there are things you wish you had never heard of?
