Bug fix alert! Do you have any multi-day activities? If so, I've been under-calculating your Eddington number and need your elapsed time for each of those activities. Please get a list together of each strava activity id and its elapsed time (in seconds), and email the list to email@example.com. Alternatively, you can refresh the score from scratch by re-importing all activities; see the Help Guide for the link. Thanks!
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!
The Going the Distance chart, though, only shows 3000+
Wondering why the discrepancy?
It appears that the count down in rides to achieve your next number is missing? E.G. You have 2 more rides of 84miles to achieve Eddy no. Of 84
thanks for the tool.
Thanks for this fantastic tool! I've been using it for years, and it's fun motivation to add an extra few miles to a long ride!
Just go with whichever number is higher ;)
Thanks a lot for this.
Love 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.
I 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.
For 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.
I 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?
Is 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.
