After months of waiting, it is now confirmed: American David Schweikert holds the new Guinness World Record for the largest GPS drawing made by bicycle a.k.a the biggest Strava art. His ride? A 982.53-mile (1581.24k) Latin cross spanning three state borders that took seven days to complete.

In March, Schweikert, a former engineering manager at Zipp and already a two-time world record holder, informed Cycling Weekly about his endeavor, stating "my backstory is that I like taking on big cycling challenges. And I always do these challenges for charity," Schweikert told Cycling Weekly. "Doing crazy things that are a little bit fun and bring some attention and raise money is kind of my niche."
