As this crazy group of pedaling potatoes make their way into the third weekend of Le Tour, we’re celebrating another 11potatoes who made it official today. Check out the O’Shaughnessy beer fridge above if you want to see some magnet goodness as well.
Crossing the line today:
New Potato finished up with 111.9 miles and what is becoming a TdCP tradition on the W&OD starting at Purcellville terminus and Magnolia’s for lunch.
Got Tot? has 108.5 miles as of today – and a magnet on the way.
Tot Louie celebrated his 108.2 miles today – using the TdCP as his motivator.
Chipper Jones crossed the century mark with 108.1 miles and La Nuova Patata hot on her heals with 107.9 miles.
Cash in Your Chips cashed in today with 104.7 miles, just ahead of Artful Tuber and her 104.5 miles.
Potato Jam has another magnet for the beer fridge after pedaling 104 miles while Yamma Rae finished up with 102.1 miles.
Nip it in the Spud, Golly D Tater and Christmas Potato are all finishing today with 101.1 miles. I’m guessing Golly D and Christmas rode together. Nip It has an extra .01.
We’re up to a total of 86 official potatoes with 18,875 miles pedaled. With the weekend coming, I’m sure we’ll see 20,000 miles, much like Lubbock, in the rear view mirror.
And what’s with the 60 potatoes on the couch? Not a mile pedaled for any of them?
Erin Loves Spuds is our inspiration as we go into the weekend. Her husband helped map out a new ride near Mt. Wachusett in Massachusetts. They live in an area with quite a bit of hills, which is awesome and also intimidating. Having dealt with lots of setbacks physically since having 3 kids, today was one of her proudest cycling moments. She knows she has it in her to do even more. Happy Friday Taters from Erin! – half way there, go Erin.
Potato Chip Rock rode in Spain, then France, then Italy – three grand tours, one day, reverse order.
Loly Pop is happy to be pedaling, whether out on the road or indoors on the trainer. Pedaling away. Incognito Potato was out on a beautiful morning ride as well.
**Note: Tomorrow’s update will be delayed as I’ll be jammin’ at a concert until the wee hours!
