Texan cyclist leads girlfriend on 15-mile route to spell 'marry me'
 
Maybe someone's posted this already, but I didn't see it here. Guy takes girlfriend on bike ride on route that spells MARRY ME on GPS.

Points for creativity, but I would have been more impressed if he'd paused/stopped his GPS after each letter.

I think I saw that in an episode of Portlandia.

Having done a fair amount of STRAVA ART, doing as you mention "....paused/stopped his GPS...." will not improve anything since the GPS will still connect from point of STOP to RE-START.

I think it was recent, Seth Meyers did a funny bit about her reply "NO" only taking 2 miles :lol: Skip to 3:12 on the video below

:thumb: Did you go back and do this again OTG with a longer route? I don't remember the tracking outside of the "crop circle" the 1st time - very cool.

Inspired by this thread, I did some route-art yesterday myself. It was my take on one of the most common drawing themes known to man, found all over the world on most varied surfaces.... so I think there is no need for posting it here, I'm sure you all have seen some of those before.

YUP. Changed a few things that added extra miles.
