Have you ever thought to yourself, "Self, if only there was a cycling event that included donuts. Then, I would totally be there!". Well, then do I have the EVENT of the year for you!
It's a 21-mile bike race that include a donut station every 7 miles. EVERY SEVEN MILES! And for every donut you eat, they will deduct time off your race finishing time. Yes, that means that it's encouraged to eat as many donuts as possible while still be able to ride a bike afterward to the finish line. You are rewarded for stuffing as many donuts as possible into your mouth without choking. It's really what every athletic event is missing.
And guess who's going to be playing this year? Why, yours truly, of course. I'm lucky enough to be on a very fun team with Camille, Emily and two of Emily's friends that I've never met. They're going to let me be o their team even with the constant threat of public humiliation that is my life. I'm so excited!
Not only is this event fun and challenging, it's also for a good cause. It helps benefit the Rotary Club of American Fork and the Huntsman Cancer Society. And really, it benefits you. Not only do you get to work towards completing a 21-mile race (and all the benefits that entails) but you get to eat donuts. And have fun!
Come! Have fun with us. Although I'm still in negotiations with CG, it's looking like he'll be participating in the race while pulling the girls in the bike trailer. He has the legs for it while I just...don't. The best thing about this event is that it really is for everyone. Single riders, teams, families, tandem riders, everyone! And if you can't/don't want to race, then everyone is still welcome to come and cheer along for your favorite team.

Be sure to register now for the Early Bird pricing. You can go here for all your registering needs. Be sure to let them know I sent you and let me know so that I can be sure to hunt you down in a totally non-stalker way the day of the race. And give them some fan love on Facebook as well.
I'll see YOU there! I'll be the one on the Huffy mountain bike. Yeah, baby!
