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.
The 2015 ride is Saturday, November 21, starting at Cal Anderson Park (near the fountain). Register at 10:30 a.m. Hunt starts at 11 and ends in Columbia City at 2.
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! Prizes for most points, best costume, best photo and more.
Free to enter, but expect to spend at least $20 buying groceries. Bring a pen and a way to carry groceries.
Last year, 105 riders hauled an incredible 1,201 pounds of food to Rainier Valley Food Bank. For an idea of what to expect, check out our post after last year’s Cranksgiving.
Party at the Royal Room after the hunt. They will have food and drinks for sale.
About how many miles is the ride/scavenger hunt? What ares of Seattle does it cover? Do we carry what we buy with us to the final destination or do we leave it at the store we purchased it from for pick up later by someone?
You carry it all with you. Number of miles depends on how many checkpoints you choose to hit. There’s no official route.
