Cranksgiving Updates: New sponsors + Snow?

Cranksgiving 2011 is only a few days away, and forecasts say there’s a chance for snow? Sounds like fun!

We are meeting at 10 a.m. November 19 for registration at Cal Anderson Park (near 11th and Howell). The ride will start at 11 a.m. and end somewhere in or near Columbia City. Food purchased along the way will be donated to Rainier Valley Food Bank.

Details on the ride are coming together, and we’re finalizing the stops. The two saddle bags from Swift Industries (see our recent profile of Swift) arrived this morning. By arrived, I mean Martina swung by and dropped them off because she lives only a few houses away.

So if you were thinking about racing or hauling, one bag will go to the first place finisher and the other to the person who hauls the most food to the finish line.

We also have prizes from Seattle Sports Company and Caffe Delia. Cascade Bicycle Club, Alleycat Acres and Fork + Frame are also helping to sponsor the ride.

Weather forecasts as of Wednesday suggest that there is a chance of snow November 19. How cool would that be? The ride is on rain, snow or sunshine. Remember, you only have to visit all the grocery store shops if you want to win prizes. Getting as many as you can handle is still great. After all, the point of the ride is to have fun and to donate food. So don’t let the weather intimidate you from coming!

Here’s the poster. Print some off and help spread the word. Invite your friends, spread the Facebook event invite. See you there!

    I found a single Pearl Izumi toe cover (size L/XL) just outside the food bank. Is it yours?
