My wife sent me this today
She thinks we ought to do this one.
Tour de Donut
I think they ought to rename it the
Krispy Kreme One Hundred
"...for EACH donut eaten and recorded, the rider is awarded a five (5) minute time credit."
Now that is MY kind of race!!!!
Don't let Fubar see this thread. He'll be the first to sign up.
Sorry Matt, couldn't resist it.

i wonder if it's possible for one person to win both the most donuts eaten AND the fastest time awards. LOL.... sounds like a very interesting challenge

Back on the bike!!
Jan Ulrich would be a shoe in to win that one !
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

That is awesome! I would love to ride it

KK!!!!! I actually haven't had one in months.
I was typing up a reply to this thread a second ago and the new Hospital cammonder came walking through, ha ha. Now he know what his summer employees (or at least one of them) are up to!
Sounds like a win-win situation! Sign me up!
Seems kind of counter-productive, but fun! Maybe you'll actually gain weight from riding. I think I would be eating a minimum of 8 doughnuts on such a race.
I gotta give the organizers credit for the great idea!
I anm sooooooo happy they finally made a ride for be and all my buddies. I gotta save up some money and go to this one year.
Heck, all you'd have to do is stop and eat a bunch of donuts and get a big time bonus!!
They don't even mention if Bill Nye is going to be racing! Guess I won't be making the trek out there to participate. Instead I'll race the loop here with THREE DunkinDonuts almost equally spaced so by the time I've burnt the calories from the first I'm at the second, where I can carbo-load again, and then refill at the third for the ardous ride home --with, of course, a 6 pack of sugary goodness picked up at the third to prevent withdrawal once I get off the bike.
This loop, by the way, is an excrutiatingly difficult flat 15 miles.

I wonder if Cornal Saunders would be interested in sponsoring a KFC donut check point?
