It’s Independence Day and our potatoes are stretching their legs. We’re adding SIX official potatoes today. Stormin’ Spud is over the finish line with 128 miles while LatKeys finished right behind her with 127 miles. Bumble Spud has a new magnet with 122.7 miles. Decapotato earned another magnet with 113.9 miles (so far – we know he’ll do more). Potato Chip Rock is also racking up the miles while jamming to the rock n’ roll tunes for 105 miles and a magnet. Just over the finish line is Mythical Patata with 101 miles – she wasn’t sure she was over the line after a broken chain cut the ride short. Congratulations to all of our potatoes who made it official today.
We have another five potatoes who are under 20 miles from the finish line. Tater Excellency is just about done with 96.1 miles and creeping up on the finish line is Spuds O’Connor with 89 miles. Tri Potato is under 15 miles to go with 86 miles and Swisher Sweet Potato is at 82.9 miles. With exactly 20 miles to go is FaHashn Brown checking in with 80 miles (and a few dodged squirrels).
Spudly, CycoTater, Yogatato and CompuTater were all out there together today celebrating the holiday for a ride early this morning.
Spudly Beach Bum and Surfin’ Spud have picked up where they left off last year – pedaling to the best food and drink options. Today was a cold brew and a croissant.
Later Tater got in her first post-Covid ride today – woo hoo.
Mama Spud and Papa Spud were out on the road to get their tour started.
Mythical Patata wasn’t the only broken chain today. Seitz and Sounds Spud had one as well – 80 blocks (but who’s counting) from home. Helmer Spud didn’t break his but helped out another rider with theirs (helpful potato).
Tugatuber was Tugging a mini-tuber with her today. A tot-in-training?
And finally, Kartoffel Kaiser is getting in her protein – yep, the bug flew in her mouth and no amount of water, spitting, etc. would make it better. I say bring on the margarita.
