Man Creates Huge Bicycle-Shaped Map Across New Forest

A cyclist has used a route-mapping app to draw a giant bicycle across east Dorset and the New Forest.

bicycle-shaped route

60-year-old David Taylor from Landford near Salisbury used the Strava app and website. It uses Google Maps to plot routes.

You can see more on Strava's website:

Mr Taylor says it took him around eight months to draw the route, in different stages. It took him 13 hours to cycle it.

He created a 141-mile route around the New Forest shaped like a pony last year, and says he's been making map segments for about three years.
