The potatoes are piling up as we add 4 more “official” couch potatoes today. Hot Potato earns a magnet with 136 miles while Pro Potato finishes up with 110 miles. Also over the century mark (she hoped to finish early) is Locked-N-Loaded Spud with 106.7 miles. Also just over the finish line is one of our rookies this year, Bourbon Mash Potato at 101.69 miles. Congratulations to all of you. Magnet goodness is coming your way.
With 141 potatoes off the couch, we’re hitting the road hard already. As a group we’re over 6,000 miles and counting. Tonight we’re going to spotlight our potatoes in the 60s. Full disclosure – I just got back from Music Bingo and heard a lot of 60s music…
Tied at the head of the pack for our 60s riders are New Potato and La Nuova Patata, both with 69.55 miles. They’re pedaling together for their 9th and 8th magnets. Green Eggs & Yam is right behind them at 68.26 miles and hot on his tail is Fitz and the Tater Tantrums at 67.81 miles. Not to be left behind is Spud Lite with 67.66 miles. I think you can throw a blanket over this group…who will cross the century mark first?
Not to be left behind are the other four potatoes also in the 60s: Surfin’ Spud is checking in with 65.4 miles and Tottering Tater has 63.1 miles. Bishop Tuber pedaled his way to 62.06 miles. Making an impressive showing this year is Home Fries – she normally pedals 5 miles a day to finish up right at 100 but she turned on the gas this year and looks to finish WAY early for magnet number 10.
Side note for the weekend – with the holiday coming up, I will be traveling so will do my best to blog each evening. The timing will be off as I’m spending time with family. Pedaling patience please.
