A cyclist has taken nine hours to pedal a route in the shape of a reindeer.

That's awesome. There's a cyclist in SF (actually used to be an active poster on BF) who has done quite a few pieces of Strava art. His twitter avatar is one he did for the Giants when they were in the World Series. https://twitter.com/CPbike

Pretty sure it is one ride. You can manipulate the GPS trace by turning your Garmin on and off -- the trace will show a straight line in between those two points, but I imagine it's more fun to map it out on the road.

I've done rude ones. People who saw the penis can't un-see it now when they look at a map of the town - it was like four miles long with a half-mile diameter nut sack.

Yes, I think that was one ride. I read elsewhere that it took him nine hours to do (I think I remembered that right. It might have been seven hours).
