British Bicyclist Anthony Hoyt cleverly rode 127.9 kilometers (79.5 miles) around the whole of London to create a pattern of a reindeer using the GPS coordinates of his route. Hoyt drew this holiday animal using Strava, a fitness tracing service that uses GPS to plot the routes taken.
It's that time of the year again when I cycle round congested streets in the rain looking for some festive cheer!: https://t.co/4u80fR8eNt@Strava @cyclingweekly #stravaart #stravart #gpsdoodle #gpsart #cycling #Christmas #reindeer #Rudolph pic.twitter.com/Nzm3Rch9nJ

Hoyt had previously drawn Father Christmas (Santa Claus) on a 65.9 km (41 miles) ride around Birmingham in 2018 and a snowman on a 142.3 km (88.4 miles) ride around London in 2017.
Happy Christmas @birmingham_live
