Goats, GPS and Cyclists : How Do They Mix ?

— Written By

Australian cyclists have used “GPS art” to turn a 202km (125-mile) ride into the outline of a goat. The four men plotted their route on an app before using it to track their journey around Perth. Cyclist Ben Jones said the group settled on a goat because it was “an easy animal to draw”. When uploaded, it displayed as a picture.

Ben Jones said the ride lasted more than six hours, with the men stopping only for food, “nature breaks” and flat tires. “Apart from riding 200 km, it’s relatively simple,” Mr Jones told the BBC. “You basically drop little dots on the road and it plans directions out”. The group received much attention after posting their map to social media this week.
