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.

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.

121 miles biked only shows 14 miles for completed art

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

That's very cool. Must have taken some planning.

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.

Don't want to get the mods and the censor mad.

YUP. Changed a few things that added extra miles.
