Save the date: A next-level Cranksgiving 2022 is November 19

A large group of people with bikes listen to a speaker in Pioneer Square.
Riders get ready for Cranksgiving 2019.

It’s been three years since the last proper Cranksgiving. Thanks to everyone who participated in our dramatically scaled-back pandemic versions in 2020 and 2021. But I think it’s time to get together again and do it right. Or better yet, go bigger than ever before.

We have some very fun changes coming for Seattle’s 13th Cranksgiving. Stay tuned for more details, but in the meantime plan on spending the morning and afternoon of November 19 biking around our city on an all-new Cranksgiving adventure to buy good to support community food banks. And invite friends to join your team.

The big change is that we are partnering with Cascade Bicycle Club’s Pedaling Relief Project, who have dedicated more organizing power to the event than we’ve ever had before. The partnership is perfect because PRP was inspired in part by Cranksgiving and has since gone on to become a wonderful community-support biking effort across our city. People volunteer to help their local food banks by going on food rescue pickups from local grocery stores or delivering food to folks who can’t get to the food bank themselves. PRP organizer Maxwell Burton once described it to us as “Cranksgiving in reverse,” so it makes sense to bring them full circle. I am just astounded by PRP, and am honored they wanted to partner up.

We will have the event poster and more specifics about the event very soon. But for now, just know that it will still be free to participate (though you should expect to spend at least $20 on groceries to donate during the ride) and will be more fun than ever before.
