Six months. Two wheels. 50 GPS doodles.

Since I started pedalling my art on the streets of Victoria on the first day of 2015, I’ve amassed a portfolio of 50 GPS doodles – 34 pictures, 11 bike-writing messages and five creations that comprise a combination of both. Click on the … Continue reading

#OlympicDay do-over

A repeat of yesterday’s ride…with a lot less GPS scatter Since yesterday’s #OlympicDay doodle didn’t turn out quite as planned (thanks to all sorts of GPS scatter in the lettering of “Olympic”), I figured I’d give it another go this morning. As you can … Continue reading

Birthday wishes for F.I.L.

Today – May 16 – is my father-in-law’s birthday. And while it’s probably a stretch to say he got the best son-in-law he could possibly imagine, he’s definitely getting the best birthday-gift-from-a-son-in-law he could possibly imagine: bike-written birthday wishes! I doodled the … Continue reading

How does the Easter Bunny stay healthy?

He gets oodles of ‘eggs-ercise’ as he hops to and fro delivering Easter treats. So does Victoria’s Stravadoodler as he pedals to and fro doodling giant bunnies and Easter greetings. It took 75+ kilometres of cycling to Strava-sketch this Easter message and the … Continue reading

The post my biggest fan has been waiting for

Okay – before you jump to any conclusions (like “Holy smokes, that Strava artist is mean-spirited SOB!”), let me tell you about Alan “Mr. Hairy Nose” Cassels and how he earned this 54-kilometre dressing down. Alan is a fellow Tripleshotter and … Continue reading

The Strava Artist’s Workplace Hazards

The work of the Strava artist is fraught with peril. While venturing down unfamiliar sidestreets and alleyways – often in the dark – I’ve encountered gaping potholes, loose gravel, fallen tree limbs, skittish deer and fat raccoons…all startling and potentially perilous.
