AREA 79 GPS Art Bicycle Tour

Elwood, Indiana, USA
AREA 79 Bicycle Tour - a unique GPS art ride
Are you up to the challenge of perfectly executing a 79-mile road course through wind turbine-dotted, insanely flat, and sparsely populated central Indiana farm country? If so, you’ll be rewarded by having drawn a classic iconic video game invader so massive it’s visible from space!
Join us for the first-ever Area 79 Bicycle Tour - we’ll provide a clearly marked route and GPX navigation files to help you win this game, but we highly recommend recording this ride with a GPS tracking device or smartphone app as proof of the impressive GPS art you’ll create.
Plan on completing your mission with minimal support, as there will be only 1 water refill station near the halfway point, with snacks and drinks available for purchase.
