Strava Art and The Nazca Lines

On this episode of BeCreativeNow, “Strava Art and The Nazca Lines”, I team up with Theo Ellsworth and set out on a once-in-a-liftime journey to recreate the Nazca Hummingbird as a piece of Strava Art. Earth drawing has been around for thousands of years, long before the advent of workout trackers like Strava. To connect the past and present, it seemed appropriate to pay homage to the original Earth Drawing artists: The historic Naca people of Peru. I did a few practice rides on simple shapes like the Penrose Triangle and the Devil’s Tuning Fork. Once I was ready, I planned out my route as closely as I could to the original, and Theo and I set out on an epic journey to capture our own Nazca Hummingbirds.
