Not later than one minute after midnight (and then claim the achievement that comes with that, and the multiple by doing it two days in a row -- see 2012-08-19 -35 149.)

[edit] Expedition

[edit] 1PE

I was thwarted by the golf course's fence and gate, and poor posture on the bike. and, the frost on the windscreen when I attempted to leave in plenty of time, so I wasted around 5-10 minutes warming the car/windscreen to clear the frost and so arrived at about 12:10am.

The country club is not open at night, oddly! The suburban cul-de-sacs do not give access to the course.

After driving to a street adjacent to the hash (Tange Place), I attempted a ride-around at what I thought would be an access point near a bike-path overpass near the hash, but proved to have a fence, too. As I turned there, I lost balance and hit the tarmac pathway and scored cuts to both hands, left elbow, and left knee.

Undeterred, I got the 'proof', beside the fence, then rode back to the car.

On the way back, I got some pics at the locked gate of the country club.

[edit] Achievements

Is it true that this user earned the Consecutive midnight frozen bicycle golf combo achievement?
In principle, yes.
But the hashpoint was not actually reached (2012-08-20 -35 149).
