the tour de donut - Ohio area riders

Has anyone completed this. It looks amazing. I would love to participate in this but I am going on a Alaskan cruise and won't get back until 10:30 pm the night before and after 3 time zone changes and it being 90 min from my house. I don't think I will have the energy. But I really want to start doing some family friendly organized rides.

Sweetest Ride in Ohio!!

Myfitnesspal would not approve :-).

I saw it when I googled up a list of rides though :-).

I've done the original Tour de Donut in Illinois many times. Heck my daughter won the women's division when she was 16 YO. It's a lot of fun. I usually only do 2 donuts at each stop.

The only worry is that some people treat it as a race and others as a fun ride. That can lead to accidents. Unless you really plan on competing, I suggest starting towards the middle and enjoying the ride - and donuts!

OK, you really just wanted to post that you were going on an Alaska cruise, right?

Have fun. I doubt you'll need a ton of fitness to get ready for the donut ride, you should go for it!

Well I have 500 miles this year with 20+ each weekend. I don't think I would have an issue with the 32 mile ride. I really would like to push to do this. It seems fun and just my style... But it's convincing the wife to want to leave the house about about 7 hrs after we get back home. And they have jerseys too. I could get my first one. And they have up to 4xl. Which makes sense considering they are feeding us donuts.

Ha...That was also one of the reasons why I wanted to go. But I suspect you can order the jersey either way. They have it as part of the registration but it looks like they have a separate link just for the jersey by itself.

I have never worn a jersey and don't know the fit. I don't think I would be comfortable in something that clings to me. Don't have the shape for that. so maybe if I got the 4x, it would be ok since I am a 3x.
