UK Strava Artist returns with an Amazing Merry Christmas across London
Anthony Hoyte, a recreational cyclist from the UK, decided to bring some festive cheer and draw Merry Xmas while cycling around the City of London over 127 kms
'Tis the season to be jolly and Strava Art fanatic Anthony Hoyte does it again, this time with the simple message of "Merry Christmas".
Speaking to BBC News, Hoyte said: “I love that my drawings – especially the Christmas ones – seem to be appreciated.”
“There are so many road closures for Crossrail and there were a couple of gated estates I hadn’t anticipated,” he said.
“Also, the ‘r’ in Christmas was supposed to take in a bit of Regent’s Park, but it was closed by the time I got there.”
“For most of these obstacles, I managed to find an alternative route."
“But for Crossrail at Euston I had to ‘cheat’ – pause my recording, navigate to the other side of the works and then set it going again. This creates a straight line between the two points.”
