A cyclist used GPS to draw a gigantic 66-mile-large mustachioed man in the streets of London

This kinda makes your back-of-the-napkin lunchtime doodles feel a little small, doesn't it?

Anthony Hoyte, a British cyclist known as the "pedaling Picasso," broke a Guinness World Record for the largest continuous GPS drawing by a bicycle in 12 hours. Hoyte created a portrait of a man with a mustache by biking a total of 66.48 miles on the streets of London. He used a GPS tracking app to create the portrait. He completed the portrait in eight and a half hours.

Hoyte said the image was in honor of Movember , which encourages men to grow mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, including suicide prevention. The portrait, named "Mr. Movember," was his 19th GPS drawing.

As someone who struggles to draw even at the most elementary, clouds-in-a-sunny-sky level—and also as someone who would probably get pancaked if I tried to ride a bike around Berwick-upon-Tweed, let alone London—I got mad respect for this guy.

Props as well to Mr. Hoyte for not making that mustache too hipster!
