A uniquely corny unicorn

Another mythical and magical GPS doodle by Stephen Lund

Today’s doodle, a rather serious-looking* unicorn, required 51.9 kilometres (32.2 miles) of cycling – 44.6 km (27.7 mi) for the head and mane (which followed roads, pathways and parking lots the entire way) and an additional 7.3 km (4.5 mi) for the unicorn’s horn.

(As I had no roads by which to draw the horn, I had to use my “connect the dots” technique. That meant pausing my Garmin above the unicorn’s ear, riding out to the tip of the horn, restarting my Garmin, pausing it again, riding to the start of a straight roadway mid-way down the front of the horn, and then starting my Garmin again.)

* And why is this unicorn so sullen? Either he’s terribly sad about his wispy mane, which bears little resemblance to the flowing, glowing manes of the unicorns in kiddie lit; or he was simply annoyed by the chilly north wind that made 50% of this doodle slow-going.
