I'm in Bicycling magazine!

When you open up the September issue of Bicycling magazine, you'll see a nice feature, "It's Not About The Hole" by Steve Friedman (Page 62), an amusing story about his effort to compete in the Donut Derby in Trexlertown, Pa.

Within that story, you'll find a sidebar (Page 66) about other doughnut-eating bicycle competitions -- including the original, the Tour de Donut in Staunton, Ill. That sidebar's called, "If That's How You Roll ... 4 Races With Plenty Of Dough -- And Nuts."

That's where you'll find me!

The sidebar, written by Jennifer Mack, briefly describes how the Mid-America Bicycle Club came up with the idea for the Tour de Donut and includes from quotes from me.

What did I say? Well, you're just going to have to get a copy of the magazine to find out. The article is not available online, at least as of today.

I can tell you that I am quoted and paraphrased accurately, thanks to Jennifer's reporting and a fact check done by an editorial intern, Christine Mattheis. I also can tell you there's a couple of bits taken from the documentary film about the ride, "Tour de Donut: Gluttons for Punishment."

I'm sure you'll find a delicious irony that a story about doughnut-eating bicycling competitions appears in the same issue of the magazine that has a promo that screams "GET LEAN NOW."
