Australian cyclists have used "GPS art" to turn a 202km (125-mile) ride into the outline of a goat.

The four men plotted their route on an app before using it track their journey around Perth. When uploaded, it displayed as a picture.

Cyclist Ben Jones said the group settled on a goat because it was "an easy animal to draw".

He said the ride lasted more than six hours, with the men stopping only for food, "nature breaks" and flat tyres.

You're kidding me.

I'll draw my own conclusions from that remark...

Wouldn't it be far more impressive if a group of goats drew a cyclist? :undecided:

And that made the BBC news .
I like the part about the goatee being in a hipster area, BUTT how would you feel if your suburb was where "the tail meets the hind quarters" ?

Hmm, with a goat you'll find a butt at both ends. :whistler:

Then again, it is Perth so perhaps they should have drawn the goat's rear end perspective across all of it. :whistler:

Why do you think you're in the bad books with me?   :confused:   :undecided:
I've been out of action (and signal range) since yesterday morning. Back now.

Being ignored is infinitessimally worse than being hated. A big effort to insult all da Perfers and not a peep. :blubber:
