Bring your bike and your appetite for the most delicious cycling event in the South: the Dixie Cream Donut Dash!
There's four different lengths to choose from: a 15 mile dash where donuts takes minutes off your finish time, a 30-miler, a 63-miler, and a 100-miler!  
When you decide to dine on our delicious pastries to knock off minutes from your finish, you have the chance to double down on your donuts.  Eat a donut, get five minutes off.  Catch a donut hole in your mouth and eat it, get ten minutes off.  Eat an entire donut while hula-hooping (and keeping that hoop going without falling)- get FIFTEEN MINUTES off your time.  Can you be the first person to have a negative time?
