Cranksgiving is an annual charity ride/race to support local food shelters that host Thanksgiving meals! Event Organizers will hand out manifests & envelopes that identified the stops of ride (selected grocery stores & markets around MPLS along with a few pit stops and other surprises). You can team up or ride solo and choose your route, any route. Routes are roughly 15-20 miles. Your goal is to ride to each site and buy food items from the ‘Cranksgiving Shopping List’ which identifies different thanksgiving foods that the sponsoring shelter has suggested…. It is up to you how much food you pick up; some people stay lightweight and pick up the beans, gravy mix, noodles, etc; other will go for gold and buy Turkeys and sack of potatoes!! Last year, riders spent between $10 and $100 on shopping list items. All donated food will go to Sisters Camelot for their Thanksgiving meal.
What to bring: Bike (of course), Bag (or trailer if you’re feeling really generous!), Bike Lock, some cash for buying goods at local grocery stores & Co-Ops.
Meet at Gold Medal Park
