About a month ago, the L.A.-based The Ditty Bops (MySpace) were 2/3 of the way across America on their summer bicycle tour.

Flashforward to last week, when Abby and Amanda finally reached New York with their pedal power and performed at the Spiegeltent Theatre.

Amanda writes:

4,502.75 miles and we’re here.
WE MADE IT! We’re in NY. it was our longest riding day ever! … we peddled for over 9 hours to NY. it was a 100 mile ride, 60 miles of which were in the rain. but we wanted so bad to get to NY for dinner…and we did. the next day we played our show at the Spiegeltent. the theme was Cops and Robbers. since then, we’ve been hanging with our friendsand doing a food tour of NYC. yesterday, we ate at 7 restaurants! the paparazzi finally caught up with us outside of Cones. and of course [Heidi] Klum was there too, stealing the limelight. we’ve got a week of rest before we gotta get our butts back to the west coast and on our bikes. Seattle here we come.

Indeed, The Bops hit the Pacific Northwest for three shows starting on Saturday, and Colorado and Arizona for the Tour de Fat Festival starting next week. After which they’ll return in October to Southern California.

  1. 4,500-plus miles cross-country on their bikes! I bow to the D-Bops greatness. Can’t wait until they’re back home and in concert. Anyone who drives to see them is a rotten egg.
