Not only are we over 9700 miles but we are announcing seven new official couch potatoes today. Pictured yesterday, my lovely aunt and uncle – Hot German Potato Salad and Reclining Spud – finished up with 132 miles each. Loch Ness Potato is also over the line with 112.2 miles (magnet number 7 I think!). Tubin’ Tuber is also finished with 105.6 miles. Truckin’ Tuber and Last of the Potatoes are neck and neck over the finish line with 104.9 miles and 104.4 miles respectively. Bishop Tuber has also earned his magnet with 100.5 miles. Congratulations go out to all of our potatoes who made it official today.
I’ve got my potato eye on Tater Excellency – hanging out at 96.16 miles for a couple days now – is the magnet in sight over the weekend?
Salt Life Yam wants to remind all potatoes that drivers are sometimes blind to cyclists. She was almost our first mashed potato thanks to a driver that didn’t stop at a stop sign – I understand expletives regarding sex acts were said (just sayin’). Please, everyone, be careful out there – no mashed potatoes please!
CycoTater can see her 3rd magnet close on the horizon as she completed the “Brown’s Store Loop” today.
Sewin’ Spuds enjoyed the NHL draft on his exercise bike – great way to get miles and watch the youngsters take the next step in their hockey career.
Fo Fanna Potato was also on an indoor bike – being grumpy about it – conference calls got in the way of her being on the street. Stupid work!
Microchip made a stop for crepes halfway through her ride (yum!) while Fry Like an Eagle is looking forward to the weekend (more miles maybe??).
Swisher Sweets Potato stopped to help a turtle cross the road, then saw a coyote cross in front of her – wildlife abounds.
