Here is some press about Saturday’s upcoming charity race, Cranksgiving.
Feast on the 13th annual Cranksgiving
by: Adam Nueman-Bicycle Times
The New York Bike Messenger Foundation presents Cranksgiving, a charitable alleycat bicycle ride,open to all and now in its 13th year.
In Cranksgiving, riders navigate around Manhattan to purchase Thanksgiving dinner ingredients at designated grocery stores. At the finish line, they arrive with a bag full of food to be donated to various charities.
The ride will consist of a food drive, where participants will ride to 4 grocery stores & purchase food to be donated to St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen, drop off jars of baby food at two shelters for women and children and raise donations to support City Harvest and the New York Bike Messenger Foundation. Winners will be determined by their times and also by the generosity of their food and money donations.
Cranksgiving is a race, but everyone is welcome to ride and participate in the fun! Bring a bag, some money, and a good lock!
