Bicycle geohashes

(Redirected from Bicycle Geohashes)
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of all Geohashes reached (partly or wholly) by bike or similar vehicles. As such, it may include any expedition during which the geohashers cycled any distance in an attempt to reach the coordinates, even if the expedition does not completely qualify for the Bicycle Geohash award (for which the whole distance must be cycled, and the coordinations reached).

Geohashers are listed in descending order of total cumulative distance cycled, and expeditions for each hasher are listed in chronological order.
