Cranksgiving is a fun choose-your-own-adventure event, all about riding a bike and giving back to our communities in need during the holiday season. We'll provide you with a list of essential food items to purchase, offer some challenges for bonus points, and give you a map of nearby grocery stores. However, how you choose to participate is entirely up to you! Whether you ride to just one store or visit them all, join as a team or go solo, we're simply thrilled to see you on your bike, doing some good!


As part of this year's Cranksgiving celebration, we're teaming up with NC Vision Zero for their annual World Day of Remembrance memorial. In 2022, more than 1,600 North Carolinians embarked on journeys from which they never returned home. NC Vision Zero is a statewide initiative dedicated to preventing roadway deaths and injuries for all road users. Cranksgiving participants will have the opportunity to visit the memorial as part of the ride route.
