Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. Part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt, it has been held annually in New York City since 1999. In 2020 more than 100 cities hosted Cranksgiving events and I thought it would be a cool thing to have in RVA. Bring a bike, a bag, a lock, and about $20-$30 to buy food. All of the food collected at grocery stores will be donated to Feed More to help feed our hungry Central Virginia neighbors. The ride this year will start at Belle Isle and end at Feed More, with an after party at a nearby brewery. Riders will choose their own path through the streets and trails of RVA in order to visit local grocery stores and gather a pre-determined list of the most needed items. Scavenger hunt details and the list of food items will be provided at the start of the ride. The most important rule is that the only mode of transportation allowed is a bicycle.
