BIKE GOD Theatre

The theatre is closed this week due to a lack of hidden treasure.

f01.jpg f02.jpg Today the BIKE GODS attempt something that's never been done before: the Potatothon, a grueling double-whammy of a ride combining Potato Mountain with Marshall Canyon. Zippy MacPhee thunders up the hill towards Potato, eagerly accepting the day's challenge.

f05.jpg Air Mapster was there, too.
f07.jpg f06.jpg After a long and harrowing ride down the mountain and through the canyon, including many failed attempts at recovering lost treasure, Air Mapster stops to document his arrival at the finish.

Based on the frame rate and the distance covered, we estimate his speed at a mind-boggling 1800 mph! Wow!
