Strava art: Cyclist draws giant dog on Catford in 150km South London ride

Marc O'Shea created the artwork yesterday - but will he take up challenge of also drawing the walker?...

A cyclist has used Strava to sketch out a giant dog during a 152km bike ride in South London.

Marc O’Shea’s ride, which he carried out yesterday, involved more than eight hours in the saddle.

It spanned an area from Brixton in the west to Bexley in the east, and New Cross Gate in the north to Keston in the south.

He didn’t stick to quiet roads, either, with the route including the South Circular, the A2 and the A20.

One of the commenters on Strava has suggested an even bigger challenge – sketching out the person walking the canine.

Here’s his creation.
