Seattle, let’s ride bikes and donate food to Rainier Valley Food Bank.

A food drive scavenger hunt by bike, Cranksgiving riders bike to a secret list of unique food sellers around Seattle buying food to donate to Rainier Valley Food Bank. For the seventh year, Seattle’s Cranksgiving is hosted by Seattle Bike Blog.

The 2016 ride is Saturday, November 19, starting at Cal Anderson Park (near the fountain). Register at 10:30 a.m. Hunt starts at 11 and ends in Columbia City by 2.

Invite all your friends via Facebook! The more the merrier.

You will get a list of needed food items and places to shop. You can go solo or as a small team (four adults max per team). The more you buy and the more places you buy from, the more points you get. There are also photo challenges and more.

All skill levels welcome! Anyone can win a prize!

Free to enter, but expect to spend at least $20 buying groceries (more is welcome, of course). Bring a pen and a way to carry groceries.

Party at the Royal Room after the hunt. They will have drinks for sale, but bring your own food to eat.

Last year, 160 riders hauled an incredible 1,560 pounds of food to Rainier Valley Food Bank. Come have fun and spread the love.

    Try listening http above. Claire de lune pianissimo.

    The most important political race this year was Port director Bryant losing.
    Head of Washington State losing while a head of the nation wins.
    This loss is a “mandate” against coal/oil/gas on BNSF RR run by billionaire
    Warren Buffett shipping Powder River coal WHICH C A N STAY in the ground.
    East Coast coal produces value-added steel product, justifiable production.
    I AM SO GLAD BILL BRYANT LOST.
