“It is a pleasure working with the City of Troy and the Miami County Visitors Bureau on the Tour de Donut bicycle challenge. They are great to work with and are always open to new ideas. They built a music festival around the Tour de Donut to enhance the event and create a fun, energetic experience for our riders. We had our best year ever in 2019, and we’re looking forward to many more years of success in Miami County.”
