# My Strava Eddington Number

To get started:

The Eddington Number is the greatest number of days that you've ridden that distance. So, if you've managed 30 or more 30-mile days, then your number is 30. If you've only managed 20 or more 20-mile days, then your score is 20. It's an interesting self-improvement statistic, but is quite difficult to calculate - so here is a Strava-based tool that does it for you!

Need more background information? Read more about the Eddington Number, plus some all-athlete charts.

You can now see a breakdown of your Eddington number within each year, seeing how it increases month by month!

Robert Armouruon 11 January 2021John Swindellson 11 January 2021Pedro Qon 13 December 2020Love your work! I noticed that some of my runs in 2019 were not picked up, especially in the second half. Everything else seems fine (from 2011 to 2020). It's just a few months in 2019 that seem troublesome.

John Swindellson 14 December 2020I suspect that your missing runs may not be public. Alternatively the activity-fetching may have gone wrong. Either way, you'll need to re-fetch your activities again; see the info in the "Help" link at the top left of this page.

Carl Jon 17 November 2020For some reason, looks like my Eddington is stuck on miles, even though the preference is showing Kms.

Tried to press the Update button and also so a refresh, but no go.

John Swindellson 17 November 2020Peteron 21 October 2020I just discovered this page and it's very interesting! But, setting a "Distance preference" to "km" I'm still getting E-numbers in left column in imperial, not in metric. At least, "Metric Ride Eddington Number" and "Ride Hour Record" as well. Or am I missing something?

John Swindellson 21 October 2020andyon 13 October 2020Is there somewhere you can add rides that were not on Strava from a while ago? Ive got 9 on Strava of 100 mile plus but have another 15 in history.

John Swindellson 13 October 2020Malcolm Rawlinson 08 September 2020John Swindellson 08 September 2020Allen Horriganon 26 June 2020It says I need 3 more rides to get to 66 but says I have only done 59 at 66 miles.

Thanks though it's a great site.

John Swindellson 27 June 2020Gordon Smithon 09 June 2020My stats seemed to have frozen at October 2019, with an error code of Strava Authorisation.

Checked my Strava privacy settings and they are set at everyone.

Did a reset from scratch and have lost all data now.

Can you help?

Thanks

Gordon

John Swindellson 10 June 2020Javion 24 May 2020John Swindellson 24 May 2020Johanon 16 May 2020My imperial nr is 69, that is equivalent to 112km.

However, my metric eddington nr is 98, and although i rode several 100km rides since my promotion, the eddingtonnr didn't change.

I do understand the difference between 69 times 69 miles vs 112 times 112 km's, that's probably the answer?

John Swindellson 17 May 2020Mark Worthingtonon 07 May 2020For clarity, if I upload to Strava 2 rides for the same day, a morning commute and an afternoon commute, does your app pick this up and sum them to achieve daily mileage? Sorry if it's a dumb question, and I'm sure the answer is obvious...

Second question is what happens when a ride starts one day, and finishes the next?

Thanks!

Mark

John Swindellson 07 May 2020If you do two or more rides in a day, they get added together to count for the day's total miles. So daily mileage is determined by all the activities in each day.

As for a multi-day ride, the mileage is chopped up according to what time proportion of the ride each day accounts for. This isn't exact of course (as you might slow down into the next day, for example), but is a reasonably approximation without getting into detailed GPX analysis.

Reuben Con 27 April 2020I don't always think to come check after I have a long day, and I think it'd help popularize the idea of the Eddington number as well.

John Swindellson 27 April 2020YJon 27 April 2020I've clicked the orange Connect to Strava button and it shows on the list of authorized apps on the Strava site, but every time I return to the Eddington number page the orange Connect button is still there, and there isn't a number. Am I doing something wrong?

John Swindellson 27 April 2020Mehdion 09 April 2020John Swindellson 09 April 2020Al Horriganon 18 January 2020Is there a function that could pull all the 100milers out to view on here

Thanks

John Swindellson 20 January 2020Jackieon 25 December 2019I might be missing it somewhere else but if not, then I think it could be a nice addition.

Of course I don't expect you to look into this before the end of this year! Thank you very much for all your work on this site. It is really nice to use to track my progress.

John Swindellson 27 December 2019Glad you're finding my Strava tools useful :)

Douglason 17 November 2019John Swindellson 17 November 2019Javieron 19 October 2019John Swindellson 20 October 2019James Ton 25 August 2019Interesting position in my stats right now. Looking at metric, I have an Eddington number of 74, and the targets beneath say that I "need 4 more days (of 76 km or more) to achieve an Eddington number of 76". What about 75? If the 76 target is correct, then surely I only need three more rides of 75km to hit 75 - but this is missing from the list if targets???

John Swindellson 26 August 2019Simonon 13 August 2019Just letting you know, Ive uploaded all my rides from mapmyfitness to strava - actually worked!

Thanks all

Simon
