    "...for EACH donut eaten and recorded, the rider is awarded a five (5) minute time credit."

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    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!

    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!

    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?
