Last year, Baton Rouge held its 4th Cranksgiving. About seventy participants pedaled around Baton Rouge and donated a total of 400 pounds of food to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, as well as giving over $200 in cash donations!

Registration opens at 11:00am and closes at 11:45am. Cranksgiving 2019 rolls at NOON.
What you'll need to bring:  
A bicycle (duh)
A way to carry your groceries (basket, pannier, backpack, etc.)
Cash or a credit card (be prepared to spend about $20)
A bike lock and helmet is highly recommended

What you'll get :
A shopping list with five common grocery items
A map
A list of local stores

What you'll do :
Register with our AMAZING volunteers
Ride to each store (your choice of route)
Pick up one shopping list item per store
Return to City Park as quickly as possible with your shopping list completed

You shouldn't ride much more than twelve miles (ninety minutes) unless you take some 'scenic' routes...
There will also be a family friendly option - about five miles worth of riding.

After the ride :
Drop off your groceries
Get your grocery list checked and receive your official time
Catch your breath!
Hang out for a while at the after-party!
Receive awards (sure, there's an award for best time, but there's also worst time, biggest/smallest spender and more...)

After the after-party :
Bike Baton Rouge takes the donated food to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank
You tell your friends how much fun you had - and bring them with you next year

Cranksgiving is 100% free aside from what you spend on food - all of which is donated to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
