It’s Hump Day and another crazy day out on the streets for our potatoes. We have another three official potatoes today. Zappa Patata is over the finish line with 133.5 miles. Rico Suave Potato has also earned another magnet with 102 miles. The Spudster is also finished with 101.1 miles. Congrats to all of you and check your email for a note about your finishers magnet. You all did your part to get us over 5000 miles pedaled.
Also hitting the mean “streets” and stomping on those pedals were Rowtato who helped out a turtle while getting off the couch. Got to protect those turtles and keep them out of the middle of the road. Spinning for a few miles (still HOT, even inside) was Rain or Shine Tater…I bet he had other potatoes in his class. Pommes Soufflees was on a Soul Ride while Harley Taterson and Mama Spud made their maiden voyages for the 2021 Le Tour. Also inside today was Yam Kronen – I guess the Chicago weather was not conducive to riding outside – so she hit the stationary bike.
Jungle Spud got some miles in but “it was no fun at all” – hopefully the next ride will be better. OrienTater was also inside to avoid the heat…maybe that’s what sucked the fun out of Jungle Spud’s ride. Tom Tater was out in the heat checking out the bluebirds.
I suspect as we turn the calendar into July, we’re going to be getting more of the heat – remember to hydrate while you’re out there (my PSA for the day). If you’re going to be inside, I hear there are some boys in France who decided to pedal at the same time we are. They are televised so if you’re looking for something to watch while pedaling the stationary, I recommend checking them out. Just please stay upright!
