Creative Cyclist Draws World’s Biggest Doodles With Strava

Creative Cyclist Draws World’s Biggest Doodles With Strava

Stephen Lund is the mastermind behind the world’s biggest doodles, sketched with the help of his bike, GPS and Strava. We have to admit it, it takes a lot of pedal power, muscle and creativity to manage to recreate these drawings, managing to combine cycling and art in the most unique way possible.

Stephen Lund cycles about 70 km (43,5 miles) per day and he uses his Strava account to recreate some of the most famous drawings, paintings, sketches and some of his own creations. Given the fact that the roads are his canvas, his doodles are the biggest in the world.

Starting from British Columbia, Canada, Stephen created his first cycling doodles in 2015. He has already cycled more than 22,300 km (13,856 miles) and his longest creation is a 220 km (136 miles) mermaid.

“The best ones pop off the map,” says Stephen Lund. “I liken it to seeing shapes in the clouds. I pour [sic] over a map of the city… The challenge is that the roads all have to connect — it has to be one continuous line.”
