Cranksgiving 2012 Charity Ride/ Race
Meet at Gold Medal Park at 2pm, November 18, for a ride/ race to support local food shelters that host Thanksgiving meals. Facebook
It is free to race, but you'll want to bring some money to buy food:
Event Organizers will hand out manifests & envelopes that identified the stops of ride (selected grocery stores & markets around MPLS along with a few pit stops and other surprises). You can team up or ride solo and choose your route, any route. Routes are roughly 15-20 miles.
Your goal is to ride to each site and buy food items from the 'Cranksgiving Shopping List' which identifies different thanksgiving foods that the sponsoring shelter has suggested.... It is up to you how much food you pick up; some people stay lightweight and pick up the beans, gravy mix, noodles, etc; other will go for gold and buy Turkeys and sack of potatoes!! Last year, riders spent between $10 and $100 on shopping list items.
Come one, come all! This event is both bikejerk/crustpunk- and family-friendly.
**bring bike trailers if you are feeling extra generous this year??**
There will be Awards for "Most Generous" (who spends the most $$), "Biggest Haul" (who carries the most weight), 1st, 2nd, 3rd Women & Men.
All donated food will go to Sisters Camelot for their Thanksgiving meal.
Hang out at Sisters Camelot afterwards; there will be treats and hots drinks!!! yay!
