This user earned the Bicycle geohash achievement
by cycling to the ({{{latitude}}}, {{{longitude}}}) geohash on [[{{{date}}} {{{latitude}}} {{{longitude}}}|{{{date}}}]].

The achievement can be claimed when you reach a geohash by bike on the correct day, and take a photo of yourself containing the necessary proof. Using a car, public transport or any other vehicle that is not entirely powered by yourself is not allowed. Monocycles, unicycles, trikes, and scooters may also belong to this achievement, as do skateboards and longboards as long as they are not electric.

If you end up at the same point you started and took a different route back to the start than the one you took to the hash (and the two halves of the route do not touch, cross, or coincide anywhere except beginning and end), go ahead and claim the Tron achievement too: Your bicycle has become a light cycle!


The following Geohashers have supplied proof and have won this award, (in descending order of total distance cycled). Please only mention your longest (total distance) ride. Use Bicycle geohashes to list the shorter ones in order to tidy up this award page.
