Last year’s Cranksgiving was by far Seattle’s biggest yet with 126 riders donating 1,443 pounds of food to Rainier Valley Food Bank. Well, the ride is back for a fifth year in a row, and you’re cordially invited to join.
Cranksgiving is a food drive scavenger hunt by bike exploring some of Seattle’s most unique food vendors and grocery stores to gather food for Rainier Valley Food Bank.
Seattle will celebrate its Fifth Cranksgiving November 22, organized by Seattle Bike Blog and sponsored by Verity Credit Union.
Meet at Gas Works Park at 10:30 a.m. to register. The ride starts at 11. It ends in Columbia City at 2 p.m. to drop off the donations and head to an after party at the Royal Room (all ages, there will be a bar and limited food menu).
It is free to enter, but riders will need to purchase donations along the way. Expect to spend at least $20 on food donations (of course more is always welcome).
You can RSVP via Facebook. Invite your friends! If your business would like to donate prizes or help sponsor the event, contact [email protected].
