Since my new bike was finally ready for use and it was a sunny afternoon, I thought I finally inaugurate it. While deciding which route to follow, it came to my mind that I hadn't geohashed in ages, so I looked up where the has was. To my surprise, it fell approximately 7.5 km from my house, which made it a perfect goal for my inaugural ride.
The only "planning" involved was looking up on Google Maps how to get there by bike, since I only went there before by car and that road isn't always suitable for cycling.
I wanted to track the whole expedition with my phone, but the GPS was taking too long to get the signal and I had to get back home in a hour, so I just started pedaling. There's not much to say, except that the last part was quite steep and there were a lot of other cyclists taking me over and making me feel bad for my awful uphill cycling skills.
I was more or less 30 meters from the hashpoint when I noticed it fell inside the private garden of a vegetables wholesale or something like that. I didn't have time to go there and try to win an Ambassador achievement so I just accepted the fact that I was going to fail the expedition. Well, it's at least a No Trepassing consolation prize.
Sorry, no tracklog available.
Photos (actually, just photo) coming soon
