March 16 (UPI) -- A group of cyclists in Australia used a GPS tracking application to map out a bike route in the shape of a goat.
"Perth's a great city to ride a bike around but a lot of the time people just ride around the river or up into the hills - we decided something a bit more interesting, so the goat was born," Jones told Perth Now.
The application allows cyclists and runners to track their routes using colorful lines displayed over a map.
"The app a lot of cyclists and runners use is called Strava - and it lets you map out rides or runs," Jones said. "So it's like a dot to dot painting when you were a kid. You put down all the puts and then fill it in."
Jones said he and the cycling group preplanned the route and decided on a goat because it was easiest to draw.
"Goats are pretty interesting animals but they are also pretty easy animals to draw in profile," he said. "I'm not the greatest artist."
The group's route took them all around the city beginning in Leederville, an area known as a popular hangout for both cyclists and hipsters.
"There is a joke going around among people who have seen it online that it makes sense that the beard of the goat is in Leederville," Jones told ABC News. "It comes up through Osborne Park for the head, the eye is in Noranda, horns in Mirrabooka, and then it goes through the north-eastern suburbs."
Jones said he wanted to complete the stunt before his child his born, but the group has plans to create images of other animals
"There is talk of doing a quokka or a numbat or some other iconic West Australian animal," he said.
