As we cross 14,000 miles today, we have two more official potatoes who have earned magnets. Uetz Chips has 103.8 miles for another magnet and FaHashn Brown has 101.0 miles that will earn new refrigerator decoration. Congratulations to you both.
Check out the great pic and video (on Facebook) from Chips A’Jorge – what a great cause!
Pump up the Yam is ‘inching’ closer to that magnet. Although he joined the Capitol Trail ride on Wednesday, he’s an “on duty” first responder that has to stay close to a boat (thank you for your service). He gets his mileage in by riding up and down the road in front of his house – a one mile back and forth…Buck-A-Spud calls it the Reedville Velodrome.
Yesterday the snake didn’t make it…by all reports, the piglets today did. CycoTater came across some excitable livestock on the road and had to dodge a bunch of piglets on her ride. Fortunately, no Pigs or Potatoes were harmed in the cycling today.
50 Shades of Spud is happy to have joined Le Tour this year and likes watching the miles add up each day. Hopefully, we have a convert and she’ll be back next year.
On the Peloton again today were Potato Chip Rock (in the French Alps – nice!) and Tombet Tater (for a ride and run – ambitious!)
164 Pedaling Potatoes – check your mileage. If you aren’t at halfway, use this weekend to pump up the mileage. We have just over a week of pedaling left – you started, you gotta finish!
Now for the DUD SPUDS…come on, get on those bikes and pedal. You took the time to sign up…now lets log some miles. We would really love to have over 200 finishers this year…and make our goal of 30,000 miles.
