Cranksgiving Chicago Chapter is ready to roll again in 2023!

Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. It's part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt -- and all about community. Every year, throughout the country, shops and individuals organize Cranksgiving events to help provide thousands of those in need with a food during the holiday season. 

The event will begin with registration and check-in  from 10 to 11 am at Cosmic Bikes (with some energizing beverages and snacks on hand).  All you need is your bicycle, backpack or panniers, helmet, lock, map or city knowledge, and $20-25 to purchase goods. All riders will receive a list of items to buy from specific grocery stores around the NW Side, all accessible via local roads and trails.

Once you've acquired everything you're able to on the list, come on back to Cosmic Bikes for a closing party with snacks and beverages from a local brewery. Everyone participating in our Cranksgiving event will be entered in a raffle to win fun bike-themed prizes!

All donations will go to benefit New Hope Community Food Pantry, which has been serving the communities of Chicago’s northwest side for over 14 years. Since 2004, New Hope Community Food Pantry has helped tens of thousands of families families, and has impacted the lives of individuals in need. You can learn more about getting involved throughout the year by visiting their website at
