Maybe it was the gale force winds howling out of the east for the duration of my ride, but this Christmas tree’s left-leaning, loosey-goosey posture gives it a decidedly Dr. Seussical feel.
But it’s exactly as it was meant to be, as I simply pedalled where Victoria’s roads took me. Following one continuous route, this Christmassy doodle required 95.3 kilometres (59.2 miles) of cycling.
I’ve provided close-up views of the tree-topper and some of the ornaments. The topmost ornament is an apt feature on Victoria’s map – Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary!
All the while I was riding, the wind was gusting from 50 to 80 km/h, and at the 77-km point the skies opened up into an almighty downpour. Which, according to Rule #9, elevates my status from GPS doodler to badass GPS doodler. Win!
