    The donut eating contest was fun to watch. There was a team of Zoobombers, a team from a local bicycle advocacy organization, a team of bike cops, a team of kids, a team of bike fun organizers, a team of random people. The local bicycle advocacy organization team won, but they also had the largest team.
