What We Do
Le Tour de Couch Potato® (LTdCP) started as a fun family challenge between a few sisters. Chris, Denise, Carolyn and Liz, their mom Janice and niece Emily were the first Potatoes in 2010.
The inaugural Couch Potato challenge had only 10 riders, none of whom were experienced cyclists. They each committed to ride at least 100 miles over the span of Le Tour de France (approx 3 weeks in late June – early July).
Over the years – and only through word of mouth – LTdCP has grown to more than 200 potatoes from around the world. The event is free and each potato who completes the 100 mile goal qualifies for a custom magnet.
We launch our event to coincide with Le Tour de France. 2023 Dates have been announced.
