WOW !!! ChristianCycling had a great presence at the 2015 Tour de Donut last weekend.

We had a GREAT day with sunshine, moderate winds and good roads. To avoid road issues the Tour de Donut organizers decided to adjust the route that extended the race to 37 miles. This year’s donut stops were at 7 and 24 miles.

You do not have to eat donuts but if you do they will subtract 5 min off your clock time for ever donut eaten. This year’s winner ate 50 donuts. Let’s do the math 50 x 5 = 250 min (2hr 10min) he ended up with a negative race time. (the score the results as non-adjusted = no donuts and adjust = race time – donuts).
