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 ninth year, Seattle’s Cranksgiving is hosted by Seattle Bike Blog.
The 2018 ride is Saturday, November 17, starting on Occidental Ave near the CenturyLink Field north 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.
New this year, Swift Industries is hosting a camping gear drive for neighbors experiencing housing instability through Just Say Hello. Donations at the start line will earn bonus points. Items accepted include: New adult socks, hats and gloves, and new or gently used (clean and undamaged) tents, tarps, backpacks, coats and rain jackets.
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. Thanks to Olympia for sponsoring the party with some beer.
Last year, 125 people hauled an incredible 1,631 pounds of food to Rainier Valley Food Bank. Come have fun and spread the love.
