An outline of downtown Helsinki

In the beginning of August, the nights up here in the North are still very light, even though in the middle of the night it already starts to get properly dark. One evening, as it was still warm enough to go for a bike ride in shorts, I headed downtown for a bit of exercise and on the way it occurred to me that it would be an interesting experiment to “draw” a GPS track along the shore line of the city.

42 km and 2 hours later (excluding the obligatory ice cream break at a 24/7 gas station on the way), this is what my tracker had recorded:

Following the Helsinki shore line as closely as possible.

It was an interesting ride, with many sights along the route and there just is no better way to enjoy a summer evening in the city than on the bike.
