Bikes, burritos, and the Benevolent Bovine
Apparently locally-owned Chipotle is one of the sponsors for professional cycling team Garmin-Slipstream.
My interest in cycling is practical and not competitive, so there's really no reason for me to have known that before last night, when the Lady and I were on Chipotle's site looking for locations participating in Free Burrito Night.
(Free Burrito Night being every Halloween, from 6 PM - 10 PM. Show up dressed as a burrito—i.e., with a piece of tin foil somewhere on your person—and you get a free burrito. It's a family tradition here in the Unclefather household.)
In addition to team info, it includes a nifty little flash game called slipstream ride, wherein you play an easily toppled cyclist who is uprighted after each spill by a flying cow. The Benevolent Bovine.
Who I guess is later, at the end of the race, turned into burrito stuffing, to be enjoyed by the winners. Such a benevolent bovine!
Weird little game.
As far as bicycle related flash games go, I'll be sticking to my cyclomaniacs.
Ride safely! And should you stumble, may the Benevolent Bovine set you upright again!
