Published 4 years ago

Every artist creates art using the medium they love the most. For some, it may be a canvas and a paintbrush, for others it may be a wall and some spray paint, and for Anthony Hoyte, it’s his bicycle and a fitness app.

The man regularly creates various drawings on a fitness app by cycling around the UK and has just recently created an amazing picture of a reindeer by cycling around London for a whopping 9 hours!

When creating his drawings, the cyclist says he tries to stick to the roads but occasionally cuts through car parks and university campuses to get the picture just right.

Back in 2017, Anthony pedaled for over 10 hours to create this drawing of a Snowman

To create his drawings, Anthony visits various big cities around the UK, like Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, and London. The cyclist says he loves to travel and thinks that US cities and their grid patterns would present him with quite a challenge.

To create his drawings, Anthony uses a fitness tracking app called Strava

He first started creating the drawings back in 2016 and has already created numerous amazing artworks

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
