Group ride tonight. It's the bday of the guy that I often beat up on for town signs, so I told him I'll be his lead-out man tonight. :D

Holding on to this is my main goal :)

I should think of some fun segment names. Unfortunately, there are so many damn segments around that the harder part will be to come up with where to make the segment.

I was riding in the neighborhood where I used to live and there was a guy trying to get his car started and I stopped to ask if he knew what he was doing. I haven't diagnosed a car in almost 2.5 years but it felt good to talk him through a couple basic things. WTF is wrong with me? Do I miss it?

Lots of uncharted segment territory here, probably.

I don't know how to make one. I only notice them when I get an achievement, then I quickly forget most of those.

I question the value of the Eddinger number. Some website told me mine is 49, I am thinking this is for the year but not sure.

Lots of damaged roads and infrastructure noted on today’s ride. A bridge we usually take, I am told, has slid downstream so we also had to adjust route slightly. We had one low speed crash caused by a bumped wheel but otherwise was a fun ride.

That's just nasty.

Not sure if you can on mobile, but on the desktop: select a ride where you rode the desired segment, scroll to the bottom of the list of existing segments and click the "Create a new segment" button. It'll take you to another page where you can refine the start/stop and name it. After jumping through a hoop or two, to make sure that you're not making a redundant segment, you're done.

I’m putting the Eddington number in circular file 13. I think I can live without it.

Oh, there's no value, other than having a dumb carrot to dangle in front of you.

You've got almost 60k miles logged on Strava - your number is surely higher than 49.

I figured. I think the site that extracted my data and spat out the number did not look at all my rides. I donít care enough to investigate further.

I get it. People with big swinging Eddingtons don't need to compare Eddingtons. ;)

I like to call mine 'Big Edd".

He's right. Especially about things happening fast. There have been many times I've run like a little girl from a player coming my way. They are, for the most part, bigger, more solid, and faster than I am. It hurts when they hit you.

I heard Lyndon Johnson called his "Jumbo".
