The Lehigh Wheelmen Donut Derby Team has been diligently working on a socially responsible replacement for 2020 Donut Derby taking into consideration precautions that need to be in place to help protect riders from the coronavirus. The Lehigh Wheelmen invite you to participate in the resulting Donut[less] Derby on Labor Day Weekend, 2020. The concept is simple: You ride the scenic 36 mile marked route/GPS route anytime on the Saturday, Sunday or Monday of Labor Day Weekend as solo riders or physically-distanced small groups.
Each person completing the course will be entered in a raffle to win a variety of prizes. To confirm that you have completed the course on the designated weekend, upload your Strava or Ride-with-GPS files or photos to our Facebook event page. More details will follow via email to those who have registered.
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.
