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

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

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.
