Some people are creative while others are energetic, but if you combine the two than this guy has everybody beat!
I use to think it was a big deal riding in the bike-a-thon back home in Broadview for the musem or riding my bike 5 miles to town, but I Stephen Lund, a cyclist from Victoria, BC follows a rather unusual method while deciding his biking routes. Instead of going for the shortest route on the map to get from point A to B, he charts a complicated course that traces out brilliant doodles on street maps and records his artworks with a GPS app.
Some of Lund’s GPS doodles include simple messages like ‘Happy Birthday’, while others feature more complex drawings of animals, fictional characters, and pop icons. He’s been doing this for the past year, creating a bizarre collection of GPS art work on an app called Strava.
Stephen has created over 85 of these doodles,all of which are posted on his website, gpsdoodles.com. He begins each project by creating a doodle on a map of Victoria that he’s built into Photoshop. He then uses Google maps to find the best route that would follow the shape of his drawings.
