Next Saturday (11/23/13) is the amazing charity event known as Cranksgiving. If your curious about trying an alleycat race, this is the one for you. It’s fun, open to all levels and helps NYC’s hungry. You don’t have to be a speed demon, knuckle tattoo fixter.
Here is more from event organizer: Ken Stanek:
“This year’s flyer by the supertalented Bruce Doscher / Cycling Posters who I was lucky enough to work with years ago and I somehow convinced to make me a poster. Go check out his stuff. It’s awesome.
Does anyone here not know how Cranksgiving works? You go buy food, and then you donate it. It’s an alleycat. The best one ever. And it happens in 40 or so places this year. Hoboken Hoboken is even having one on November 16th this year.
Sponsors (this list will grow – and if you’re interested in sponsoring, let me know! Flyers haven’t gone to print yet.)

Bring a bike, a bag, and a lock. Join the original Cranksgiving Charity Ride in New York City. This event is FREE, but you’ll need $15-$20 to buy food to donate to a homeless shelter at the finish.
Navigate the streets of the city and the aisles of grocery stores as you search for specific canned goods. Once you’ve collected all your receipts, all of your food will be donated to a local homeless shelter.
Cranksgiving helps feed hundreds of New Yorkers through our charities. This year, as more and more people find themselves in desperate times, Cranksgiving hopes to step it up and smash all previous records.”
