Cranksgiving is back for 2020! Our annual ride looks different this year - but will be just as fun for you and your friends to participate in. During this scavenger hunt/bike ride/food drive extravaganza, your team will receive a digital manifest, choose your own adventure, and end by bringing food directly to our food partners, the Franciscan Center and Moveable Feast.

Last year we hosted our biggest Cranksgiving in five years with over 200 riders and 60 teams. We celebrated at Charm City Meadworks and donated over 1000 grocery items to our food partners. While we can’t do that this year, we’re excited to have you all participate in a physically distant, inclusive ride.

What does the day look like?

To make Cranksgiving safe during COVID-19, we’re making some accommodations to the event:

  • Staggered start times: You will start off at either 12pm or 1pm, depending on what ride time your team chooses.

  • Digital manifests: At your start time, your team will have the manifest emailed to you.

  • Outdoor stops: We’ve added stops that are outside and have plenty of space for physical distancing. Unlike in previous years, you do not have to enter each grocery store to buy items. Unlike in previous years, your team is not required to buy groceries at each store. You can go to the stops on the manifest in any order, and buy the groceries on the manifest from any grocery stores listed on the manifest.

  • Different end locations: You’ll end your ride at either the Franciscan Center (101 W 23rd St.) or Moveable Feast (901 N Milton Ave), and drop off your food donations directly with the food partner.

  • Virtual awards ceremony/after-party: After you drop off your food, feel free to ride home and join us for the awards ceremony and after-party virtually! We’ll announce winners of Cranksgiving and get a chance to connect with all of the other riders!
