On a bicycle path south of Eelde




The hash is on a bicycle path, which means there is a maximum speed for e-bikes there. This is also the maximum legal speed for any vehicle on that path. In other words, an ideal day to finally get the speed racer achievement. I asked some people to join, but they all had other things to do. So I'll go there alone.

I expect to go over the hash several times in order to make sure I get the achievement, so I'm not planning for something like Tron. Also because it's far enough from my house and I don't feel like making it any longer.

The weather isn't too bad, but it's a bit cold and there'll be nothing to do there, so I plan to just go there and then go back again.


The ride there was slightly longer than expected, but I got there without problems. I took a picture and screenshot at the hash location, marked the spot on the ground with some twigs and then went over it again at 40 km/h (the speed limit for high speed e-bikes at that location). Because my battery wouldn't make it all the way home at full power, I set it to a lower setting and went back home. I got there before it ran out.


Here is the track of my expedition. I had expected that it would have recorded the speed at the geohash, but of course it doesn't take that many measurements. So while I'm obviously going near 40 km/h at the hash, you'll have to take my word for it that it was exact.
