Neoclassical GPS art – a great excuse for doodling GPS genitals!
When Bicycling Magazine writer Molly Hurford interviewed me a few weeks back, she asked if I knew of any other people making GPS art.
I spoke of a couple of notables – England’s David Taylor (of giant New Forest bicycle fame) and Baltimore’s prolific ‘GPSerist’ Michael Wallace – and then I mentioned that a lot of cyclists and runners draw penises, which seem to be popular as a point of entry (no pun intended) into GPS artistry (see gallery of images below).
Little did I know this would end up in Molly’s most excellent article:
“I hear a lot about people drawing penises,” Lund says. “It seems weirdly popular. And maybe I would do that one day, but it would be on a statue of David, to give it some context.”
Well, ever since the article appeared on bicycling.com on August 31, I’ve been feeling a strange sense of urgency to join the worldwide community of penis-doodlers…with some neoclassical context, of course.

For your amusement and viewing pleasure, I’ve put together a small gallery of GPS penises that I found on Strava.com…
