I'm talking about donuts!

Well, I made it through my talk about the Tour de Donut just fine, and "Tour de Donut: Gluttons for Punishment" co-director/producer Jim Klenn will be glad to know that I even sold a few copies of the film to members of the Evanston Bicycle Club!

I want to thank the club for their hospitality and the warm welcome they gave me. The club has about 500 members, and more than 50 showed up for Tuesday's meeting where I gave the presentation. Appropriately enough, they served doughnuts before the meeting.

The Evanston Bicycle Club sounds like the type of club I would like to be involved with if I lived in the Chicago area rather than the St. Louis area. For example, one of their rides is called the Hot Dog Tour, where they travel to various hot dog stands in the Evanston area. No, it's not a competitive eating/bicycle ride like the Tour de Donut, but I think there's potential there!

All in all, it was a pleasurable couple of days in the Chicago area. The Amtrak ride gave me plenty of time to read Mike Magnuson's "Heft on Wheels." In the next couple of days, I'll give my thoughts about the book, but now it's time to get back into reality.
