Tour de Donut Registration is Now Open

Registration is open for the 2012 Tour de Donut taking place in Arcanum September 8.

A new start and finish location in Downtown Arcanum, post event party with live music and The Grand Arivee finish line celebration are just a few of the additions for the 2012 Tour de Donut that are sure to please participants and spectators.

The Tour de Donut is a unique bicycle event, where your ability to eat donuts is just as important as your ability to ride your bicycle fast. The event is a mass start timed bicycle "race" where riders visit "donut stops" during the course and eat donuts. For each donut the rider eats during the ride (and keeps down) they have 5 minutes deducted from their ride time.

There are prizes in several classes including the coveted golden Tour de Donut championship belt for the best adjusted "donut time". We also award the most donuts eaten in several classes, and for the speed freaks we also award the fastest bike only time. Both the full donut (30 miles) and the mini donut (15 miles) have full awards and podium awards ceremony.

While the event is technically a "race" very few consider it a serious competition, remember this is all in fun! We doubt the next Tour de France champion will have Tour de Donut Champion listed on his palmares, so eat some donuts and ride as fast or slow as you wish.

Recently featured in Midwest Living, Cooking Light and Bicycling Magazine the event continues to draw a National audience. In 2011 nearly 1000 riders from 16 states and Canada participated.

Registration price increases July 1 and closes when the 1500 rider limit is reached.

Online and print registration forms are available at
