Cyclists Draw Animal Shapes Over Tokyo


A group of cycling cartographers in Tokyo are creating a zoo of bike routes. Using a Sony GPS device Elephant outline called a nav-u, they ride around the city in paths shaped like the outlines of animals seen from above. A whale and a sea lion are the most recent additions to the 15-strong menagerie of rides. Can someone get this going stateside?
