Think of the best gathering you've ever been to. Was it a class reunion, a family get-together or a camp-out with your Scout troop?

Tour de Donut 2013

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 two "donut stops" during the 30 mile course or one stop for the 15 mile mini 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".

Iron Horse Trail in Dayton

Bridge construction on US 35 results in intermittent closures/detours of the Iron Horse Trail where it passes under US 35. The closed section is from the northern-most end of the trail (where it connects to the CreeksideTrail) and Linden Avenue. The closures occur during typical daylight working hours on weekdays. The trail is typically re-opened for public use on weekends.

The suggested detour uses Linden Avenue, Smithville Road, and Burkhardt Avenue.  See the image below for more detail.
