Strava’s GPS tracking feature is so much fun—especially when you forget that it’s on. Yesterday, I turned on Strava for the walk to the park, and then forgot to pause the tracking while at the playground. The end result is this fun scribble-all-over animation (video on YouTube):
All these squiggly lines capture us chasing a four-year-old and one-year-old around a playground for 15 minutes. Although Strava didn’t capture me pushing the roundabout in circles. That would have made a cool pattern. Maybe I needed to push it for a longer time.
The elevation tracker recorded the time when I climbed up the quasi-rock-wall-thing.
On my birthday last year I rode my bicycle in repeated circles doing donuts in a parking lot.
That was also a lot of fun. Of course, there are people who take this to a whole new level by drawing things with their Strava GPS. Someday I’ll write up a bunch of ideas. In the meantime, here’s a few: Walk every street in your neighborhood (the result is kinda cool), spell words, draw pictures. There’s gotta be more.
