A cyclist nicknamed ‘The Pedalling Picasso’ drew a 75-mile virtual moustachioed face across London to raise cash for Movember.
Anthony Hoyte, 53, from Cheltenham, completed the challenge after eight hours and 27 minutes in the saddle. He used tracking app Strava to plot the route.
Mr Hoyte hopes to raise £3,925, a pound for every male life lost to suicide in England and Wales last year, for charity Movember.
The heritage consultant is not new to sketching whacky doodles on his bike.
He has previously drawn a huge 66-mile Santa Claus across Birmingham, and a 78-mile Merry Christmas message across London.
He said: ‘’I have been doing these drawings for a few years now, usually for a bit of fun, but this year I decided to do something different.’’
He started making the doodles five years ago but admits his first sketch of a dog in Cheltenham was ‘not very good.’
Later he was inspired by a Canadian artist and positive feedback he received online kept him going.
Yesterday’s doodle was his first charity effort.
He added: ‘’It’s all about challenging the stigma around mental health.
‘’If I can raise awareness and some cash for Movember with something like this, then fantastic.
‘’It’s ended up looking like an 80s sports pundit. It wasn’t based on anything, it started with a nose I spotted on the map.
‘’It was harder than I thought it might be. I’ve done a few faces and I started trying to add a moustache to one of them, but that didn’t work so I started from scratch.
‘’The whole thing took about three months to plan. On the day things were complicated by road closures so I had to modify the route on the hoof.
‘’I’m also not as fit as I could be, so I was shattered by the end!’’
Movember is a charity that runs a month-long campaign each November to raise money to boost men’s mental health, prevent suicide, and tackle testicular and prostrate cancer.
Each year many men grow moustaches to raise money for the charity.
