It was my wife’s birthday on Monday. And much to her delight, she got the very thing every wife of a Strava doodler hopes to get for her birthday: a Strava doodle designed and pedalled just for her!
While the city grid was more or less cooperative for creating the vertical lines of the gift box and ribbons, the box’s diagonal edges required much pedalling here and there and back and forth to “connect the dots” – a technique I describe in my previous post. (The second ride pictured here – recorded on my iPhone Strava app – shows all that back and forth.)
All told, this Strava gift and happy birthday message called for 49 kilometres of cycling in Victoria’s downtown core and the neighbourhoods of Central Park, Fernwood and Jubilee .
