Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Thought so.
How does one determine the number that determines the number of rides that determines the Eddington number?

I did one recently that was a couple miles short. Screw it. I didn't plan it, and it was short due to last minute road construction detour. . The ruling on the field?.....close enough!

Well my last century I rode 50 miles one way and turned around rode back. Somehow when I got to my house I was at like 94 miles. I think I got to 98 before I said screw it.

Is there anything that should be done if one notices rust on a bike?

My ritchey has some rust on the chain stay, previous owner must have dropped the chain and pedaled through.
