The Donut Derby is a fun 36 mile race with a twist: Get a 3 minute time credit for each donut eaten at stops positioned at mile markers 12 and 24.  Donut-adjusted time determines the winner in several age categories.  A complementary lunch for DD racers and an awards ceremony follow the ride. 

 

Each person completing the course will be entered in a raffle to win a variety of prizes.  Want to improve your chances?  We’re offering virtual donuts for $1.00 each.  Every Virtual Donut purchased will give you an additional chance in the raffle.

The Munchkin Mile:  

After the Donut Derby your children, age 10 and under, will be able to participate in the Sixth Munchkin Mile.  This year, children must be pre-registered on BikeReg (no registrations the day of the event).  There is no cost for participation in the Munchkin Mile.  The event is limited to children of DD riders, LWA members and volunteers.  Your ‘munchkins’ will be given the opportunity to ride 5 laps on the Valley Preferred Cycling Center T-Town Velodrome, home of world-class bicycle racing.  For those who have not mastered two-wheelers, training wheels, strider bikes and trikes are allowed.  Munchkins (the food) will be offered to keep your kids refueled.  Medals will be awarded at the completion of the event.
