Cool stuff. Too much time on his hands, perhaps. But cool nonetheless. I'd imagine you could draw pretty good things in a big city like New York.

So, is he turning the GPS on and off for the teeth?

I'd say running back and forth along the same path.

There appear to be straight lines cutting across blocks without roads.
And, thus my suggestion of turning the GPS on and off.

Here's a couple that I did (Strava traces). Forgive the "tail" on the bottom of each, that was me riding from home to meet the group, then returning home.

Cowboy with lasso.

Panther. Or Sphinx.

Not quite as good Stephen Lund's, but they were fun to ride. I didn't come up with them; our ride leader just as too much time on his hands. Which is okay, cuz it makes the rides interesting.

You can crop off your tails if you wish.

No, I'm good. I just didn't want you guys to think they were somehow part of the drawing. We call them Etch-A-Sketch rides

I just saw one of these in the form of a giraffe on Garage Journal on a thread someone was asking about GPS apps for cycling. How weird that I then pull up Bike Forums and find something similar.

Pretty cool.

I hadn't realized this was a "thing". I thought it was interesting when I incidentally drew the state of Texas. Less than perfect, but unintentional.

Just finished the "Giro d'Italia"

And finished it all off with an Italian Style Pizza.



A lot of flat riding. Lots of turns, but it did end with a couple of good hills.
