June 23 is #OlympicDay

(Judging by my #OlympicDay doodle, it’s also GPS ScatterDay!)

#OlympicDay – June 23, 2015 – by GPS artist Stephen Lund in Victoria, BC, Canada GPS Garmin Strava art cyclist cycling creativity 2015 Olympic Games Rio de Janeiro contest

My #OlympicDay doodle on #OlympicDay – June 23 – didn’t turn out exactly as planned thanks to some inexplicable GPS scatter…but you get the drift

Today – June 23 – is #OlympicDay, when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) calls on people all over the world to get off the couch and get moving!

To motivate people to get active, IOC is offering a chance to win a trip for two to Rio de Janeiro in the #OlympicDay contest. All you have to do is use #OLYMPICDAY to show how you get active.

The contest runs till the end of June.

About the Strava Doodle

One of the ways I get active is by indulging my Strava-doodling obsession. At 18.4 km and just over 45 minutes, my #OlympicDay doodle was comparatively quick. And apart from one short segment at the top of the “O” where I had to ‘connect the dots’ between two dead-end roads, my #OlympicDay route was uninterrupted.

As for the GPS scattering happening along 48.437º latitude…the afternoon was windy, but I didn’t think it was THAT windy!

See it on Strava

Note: The GPS points will render correctly only if you are logged in at Strava.com
