Victoria cyclist Stephen Lund cycles some very specific routes that allow him to create “GPS art” on the Strava app. The app allows you to track your routes and progress when you run or cycle, but Lund takes it step further. He pours over city maps and then plots out a pattern to cycle. Then it it appears in the Strava app as a design or shape.
He posts his work/art/cycle humblebrags? on his website GPSdoodle.com.
He wrote on his website, “dating back to February 12, 2015, “Wicked Witch of the West Coast” was one of my earliest GPS doodles…and she’s still among my favourites.
Her portrait required 85.9 kilometres of cycling. Several parts of her profile – her brow, her nose and the top of her chin as well as her chest and withered bosom – are parts of the regular routes I ride with Tripleshot Cycling Club.”
