Cranksgiving is part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt.

Bring a bike, a bag, a lock, and at least $20 to buy groceries. You will ride around the city to designated checkpoints to purchase items on the manifest. All of the groceries collected will be donated to the food bank at the Welcome Inn Community Centre and delivered there by bike courtesy of THAAT Co-op. Last year riders collected 748 pounds of food worth $1,329! Use strategy, brains, and speed to make it to the finish first!

How does it work? It's easy. You show up, grab a map and manifest with the list of stores and food items, figure out the best route, and start riding when we say "GO!". Visit the checkpoints and purchase the items on the list then get back to the finish line with your groceries as quickly as possible!

Race to win or participate at your own pace scavenger-hunt style. All bikes and riders welcomed with both a beginner (~10km) and advanced (~25km) route - lets have fun!

Free registration at Gore Park at 1:00pm, ride begins at 2:00pm sharp! Finish location TBA. Prizes awarded at 4:30pm.
