HELMET ON: AN INTERVIEW WITH THE MEN WHO CYCLED 1057 KM TO DRAW WORLDS LARGEST GPS DICK

Yesterday, Don't Panic published the heartwarming tale of three Polish men - now identified as Marcin, Maciek and Mariusz - who cycled for seven days straight to complete a 1057 km GPS line drawing of a dick.

Since then, their creation has gone viral - a life-affirming reminder of the beauty, endurance and unifying power of the humble willy doodle. 

Reaching out via social media, we tracked the trio down to learn more of their travels. This is their story. 

 

 

Don't Panic: Who are you guys? Tell us a bit about yourselves.

Marcin: We met a few years ago in one of the polish IT companies. Despite our career paths diverging, we are still joined by our mutual passion for cycling. Maciek and Mariusz did a few hundred km's ride last year but this is the first project of this magnitude we completed together.
 

DP: So - how did the idea first come about?

M: It's hard to say. Maciek was the first one to come up with the idea, but we got on board very quickly. Initially the route was going to be as long as 3000 km but due to the time constraints we had to rescale our willy and eventually arrived at 1000km.

 

DP: Why a dick? What is it about the classic penis doodle that keeps doodlers coming back to it year after year, time and time again?

M: It's childish enough and in a way naturally thoughtless. Imagine you're seven years old, in a school's loo and you have a pen in your pocket... we all know how the story ends. On the other hand, we wanted the route to be simple, linear, without any forks. The conclusion was immediate.

 

 

DP: What cities, towns and landmarks did your penis-shaped route take you through? What were the highlights?  

M: We went through a couple of larger polish towns such as Płock, Malbork or Elbląg. The remainder were smaller towns and villages. As far as the roads are concerned, we had a full overview – starting from super-smooth tarmac, through some slightly worse surface and ending with sandy, countryside paths. We must admit that in Poland there are more and more of very good, newly-restored gravel roads which are excellent for cross-country bike rides.

 

DP: Did you ever lose faith along the way, or regret undertaking such a girthy task?

M: We had one particularly hard day. The weather really got under our skin. It was raining hard till midday and it was blowing a gale. In every town and village we could see fire-fighters' trucks leaving for action. We didn't let it get us down however and we reached our destination in the designated time. We couldn't allow ourselves for any delays due to further holiday arrangements and work responsibilities of the members of our team.

 

 

DP: What has the reaction been like since posting the image online?

M: To be honest, we didn't expect such a reaction. It's slightly overwhelming but also quite nice. We did it for ourselves, without hope of any publicity or fame – we fancied a ride and have achieved just that. This was yet another cool trip – that's how we are thinking about this.

 

DP: What's next? A pair of tits the size of Germany? A vagina spanning the coast of the Black Sea?

M: We have some ideas. There's talk of  a “pan European” tour. But it's too soon to give away any details!
