What is Cranksgiving? It’s a food drive on two wheels happening all over the country. Most Cranksgiving cycling events will be held the weekend of November 21 and 22nd. Founded in 1999 by a group of messengers in New York City this unique event incorporates a traditional charity ride with a scavenger hunt. You get a shopping list and a location list and ride around to local grocery stores to purchase non-perishable foods that you then donate to local charities.
