1.025km to draw a Velociraptor on Strava

This dinosaur has reached the Guinness Book of Records for the longest drawing in the world made with GPS.

Antony Hoyte is a strava artist: in your profile you can find many very creative GPS tracks. Creativity and patience. Together with him 3 other French friends who spent six days to complete their 1.025 kilometers and with a good goal: to raise awareness about climate change.


Strava needs no introduction, it is used by millions of athletes including cyclists from all over the world. A very particular way to use the application is Strava Art, an increasingly popular trend which consists of tracing a path that reveals a drawing.

Anthony Hoyte went further and created a Velociraptor with a circumference of over 1000km!

Between October 30 and November 5, they were challenged to draw a velociraptor on their bicycle for 1.025km. It took Maxime Brugère, Florent Arnaud, Franck Delorme and Nicolas Meunier six days to bring their project to life. They managed to complete the challenge in 43 hours, 47 minutes and 26 seconds. Here is the direct link to the track.

"Dinosaurs are proof that such strong species can disappear quickly and that is what we are experiencing now with the sixth mass extinction. We are the main perpetrators of this environmental crisis, but also its main victims. Therefore, the future is in our hands and cycling is one of the best ways to contribute to change” – Anthony Hoyte

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
