Cranksgiving Seattle 2017 is November 18

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 eighth year, Seattle’s Cranksgiving is hosted by Seattle Bike Blog.

The 2017 ride is Saturday, November 18, starting behind Swift Industries (Occidental Ave near the CenturyLink Field parking lot). Register at 10:30 a.m. Hunt starts at 11 and ends back at the start 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 Swift Industries after the ride.

Last year, more than 90 riders hauled an incredible 1,132 pounds of food to Rainier Valley Food Bank. Come have fun and spread the love.

      You’ll have to wait and see… :-)

      We’re making a few small changes to the event this year. You’ll find out when you get the manifest at the start.

    If MacPherson’s is on the manifest again I hope part of that challenge is leaving a note asking them to support the 15th/Columbian safety changes.
