Scenes from Cranksgiving 2017

Yours truly giving the rundown at the start of the ride. Photo by Brock Howell.

125 people hauled over 1,000 1,631 pounds of food by bike during Seattle Cranksgiving 2017 (UPDATED 12/5).

Over the eight years that Seattle Bike Blog has been organizing this food drive scavenger hunt by bike, the total amount of food riders have donated to Rainier Valley Food Bank is somewhere around 8,000 pounds of food. That’s the weight of several cars, all purchased locally and hauled by bike to share with neighbors.

Big thanks to everyone who came out November 18 for another unseasonably beautiful day.

Big thanks also to Swift Industries, who donated prizes and hosted the afterparty at their Pioneer Square headquarters. They were vital for pulling off this year’s event.

Other prizes were donated by Cascade Designs, Cascade Bicycle Club, Peddler Brewing, Reuben’s Brews and Kelli Refer.

First, here are a couple photos courtesy of Brock Howell:

One of the photo challenges this year was to leave a comment about the need for bike lanes to Uptown/Seattle Center.

And here are some great shots from people who participated. Check out #CranksgivingSEA on whatever social media platform you use for more.
