EDDINGTON NUMBER LAUNCHES SECOND YEAR

The University of Cambridge's cycling campaign at Eddington has entered its second year. The Eddington Number campaign was devised to get more people cycling in the Cambridge area.

The campaign is based around the Eddington number for cycling – which takes its name from its inventor, Sir Arthur Eddington, who was also the astrophysicist that the Eddington district is named after.

Your Eddington Number is the largest number of miles you have cycled or walked for a consistent number of individual days. They don't have to be consecutive days.
