Bike GPS is the brush for a giant canvass

by GPS4US 2013-08-13 15:32

GPS isn’t just for getting around. It gives you a whole new high-tech way to create art.

Just take Michael J. Wallace, for example. The Baltimore school teacher, for the last four years, has used his bike and GPS system to form drawings all over his neighborhood. Wallace calls it GPX riding, and his various works include a map of the United States, a surfer catching a wave and plenty of other impressive rides.

After coming up with ideas, Wallace uses his map to plan his route. The results are pretty amazing, and you can check them out on his website.

“Think of each of the pictures found here as being akin to a giant Etch-a-Sketch,” Wallace says on his site. “Once the recording begins, a continuous pedal-powered line is drawn. Each finished piece represents the end product of the planning…I love the challenge of using Southeast Baltimore as my backdrop for creativity in fitness.”

His longest ride, a spider web, took 45 miles and nine hours of riding. He has done up to three rides in a day.


If you want to try your hand at GPX riding, we suggest finding the Garmin Edge model that fits you. Be sure to use it with the Garmin Connect free website.
