ON SEPTEMBER 30th, I’m going to celebrate the end of the “racing” season – because there is no off-season in SoCal.

How?  By riding to the 10 best donut shops in the county.

Which ones?  I hope you’ll help me decide.  There are a number of lists on the interwebs – see below.

It won’t be a race, but we’re competitive – right?

Maybe we’ll honor the most donuts consumed?  Most weight gained?  Best donut-themed kit?  Best napkin collection? (Is Krispy-Kreme the only one with branded nappies?)  Trust me, we’ll think of something.

Stay tuned.
